Skills practice for GCSE 9 - 1. Students find the area under six graphs - the first four graphs involve straightforward shapes, the final two graphs require splitting the area into strips and estimating total area using trapeziums. Students are asked to include units to make them think about the outcome of finding areas (ie vertical axis units x horizontal axis units). Answers are included, plus an editable version of this resource.

    A nice resource to recap on skills previously taught. I like the extension to non-linear graphs. Thanks for sharing :-)

    Really useful for a recap or consolidation. Covers all the basics and could lead to the trapezium approach for area underneath a graph nicely if you were required to teach it. Thanks for sharing.
