Geometry: Real Life Graphs - Drawing and Interpreting rates of change (+ resources)

This is an excellent look at different questions on rates of change and drawing real life graphs. This is one of the new "hot" topics for KS4 / GCSE as well as being appropriate for stronger groups at KS3.This Powerpoint gives lots of structure to the lesson, including an interesting starter, learning objectives, several matching exercises / MWB activities, a worksheet with answers and a challenging plenary.This lesson is a great accompaniment to my lesson on travel graphs and together helps pupils becoming much better at interpreting and drawing graphs. I have also uploaded a very large 4 lesson bundle of linear graphs, which might also be helpful to do at the same time.NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Equation and Gradient of a Linear/Straight Line Graph

Equation and Gradient of a Linear/Straight Line Graph

This is a series of lessons (2-3) on finding the gradient and equation of a linear graph.The lesson begins with using and applying the gradient and y intercept of a graph. This is applying them to real life functional problems and interpreting what these values represent. The lesson then gives pupils the opportunity to find the equation of a line and then applying this to different contexts as well as worded problemsAll tasks are differentiated either 3 or 4 levels. All tasks have solutions so pupils can self mark with some of the solutions handwritten so pupils can see a full worked solutions.This has been used with classes of varying ability and all have been able to access the lesson up to their desired ability.

Mapping Diagrams RAG Task

Mapping Diagrams RAG Task

Pupils choose which colour they feel confident attempting. If they are really confident they should choose green, the secure option, if they are struggling they should choose the red or amber option (foundation – basic assessment of skill, amber is a little bit harder).Pupils show the questions, working out and answers that they have attempted in their class book.Pupils self assess or peer assess at the end of each activity to show themselves how much progress they have made.Answers provided. Terms of use; Please use only by the customer paying for the resource.Printing tip; Print - fit to page or fill entire page so they only print on A4. I have also included a second copy with a label of printing because my lovely reviewer gave me a valuable tip about cost of ink so I have changed the background to white to make it cheaper.

Rearranging to y=mx+c  (Math Art- Easter Special)

Rearranging to y=mx+c (Math Art- Easter Special)

Math Art combines the fun of colouring and the consolidation of mathematical skillsIdeal as a plenary activity to determine what learning has taken place, alternatively use to determine pupils prior knowledge to a topic and of course great for revision.In this math art activity pupils need to rearrange from the implicit function to y=mx+c and hence identify the gradient. Pupils then shade all the squares with those answers in the colour stated. As a result pupils will have a picture of an Easter chick.This resource comes complete with instructions, solutions and ideas for support/stretch. Check out our blog for more Easter Maths ideas.
