AS Level 2017 Mathematics Lesson 23 and 24 Curve Sketching

Two lessons which slowly take students through the basics of curve sketching. The powerpoints show students how to get a hold of the shape of each curve (quadratic, cubic, quartic, reciprocal), the role the sign of the dominant terms plays and the effect of repeated roots (tangency). The powerpoints contain a starter of basic material in the A level course so far and the worksheets are fully differentiated. One of these can easily be used with KS4, the other should only be used for high achievers
