Three different tests on the equation of a straight line

Three different tests on the equation of a straight line

These resources can be used as a test or a homework to assess how well your class has understood the equation of straight line graphs. The first resource is a 4-page test where students must draw graphs, find gradients or points using y=mx+c, find the equation of graphs and answer questions about parallel and perpendicular lines. The second resource is another 4-page test, similar to the first, with some slightly altered questions. The third resource contains 24 multiple-choice questions. This is a quick way of assessing knowledge and understanding and is a common style of question in the new GCSE papers. All answers are included.

3 worksheets to introduce and practice the equations of parallel and perpendicular lines

3 worksheets to introduce and practice the equations of parallel and perpendicular lines

The first worksheet is an activity designed so that the students learn the rules about the gradients of parallel and perpendicular lines. The second worksheet is a short activity using the rules they have learned. Two parallel/perpendicular lines are drawn on each grid, given the equation of one line they must determine the correct equation of the other. The third worksheet is a series of questions where the students must write down the equation of a line that is parallel or perpendicular to a given line, including questions where the line must pass through a given point on the y axis.

Worksheet to practise drawing straight line graphs from the equation

Worksheet to practise drawing straight line graphs from the equation

This worksheet can be used to give students practice of calculating the coordinates of points on a line, plotting the points and then joining them to draw the line. All worked answers included. Ready-made graph paper is provided for each question. This worksheet contains 10 questions of increasing difficulty. Initially the students are provided with a partially completed table of values and with the axes already drawn, on the later questions they must do the table and axes themselves.

Gradient found from 2 coordinates Match Up worksheet

Gradient found from 2 coordinates Match Up worksheet

Gradient found from 2 coordinates Match Up worksheet. Pupils must complete a number of questions to find the gradients on the worksheet. Five gradients will be unused and they can be added together to find a final solution. Can be used as practice or revision of the topic. Also if pupils get the final solution teachers can be happy the topic is understood without the need for marking. Solution included.
