#### Graphing Equations Introduction

This resource works well over two lessons. <br /><br />
Lesson one has a starter activity plotting co-ordinates and then introduces the students to lines parallel to the axes on the co-ordinate grid. There is then an activity drawing and naming lines parallel to the x and y axis.<br /><br />
Lesson two has a starter using co-ordinates in all four quadrants. Following is the main teaching point; plotting an equation by first creating co-ordinate pairs from the equation. There is then an activity giving the students four equations to plot by themselves.<br /><br />
Both lessons are aimed at students working at NC level 5.

#### Coordinate Battleships Game (Differentiated)

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.

#### Cash for questions revision activity

There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
