.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

Christine is saving for a holiday. She is able to save some money per month. To get started Christine's grandparents are going to put in $500. This is the starting scenario - look at saving $50 per month and then two other options. Looking at the relationship between graph, table and equation of the data in the tables and investigate the link to gradient and y-intercept. A starting place for a unit on linear graphs (if students don't know gradient, teach it in context or skip that part)

Squares to Stairs

Squares to Stairs

Number of diagonals in a polygon, number of squares in special figures, triangular numbers are just some of the examples how we can model with quadratic functions. Using difference tables to establish the pattern and confirm the relationship in Geogebra. Enter the numbers in a spreadsheet, draw a graph, fit a polynomial regression model, use the model for predictions. An assessment task on direct and inverse variation to follow the lesson. The zipped folder includes Geogebra files. Teacher handout has full instructions how to use Geogebra. A lesson can be differentiated: stronger students attempting difference tables and taking an algebraic approach; weaker students using technology to arrive at the same answer.

Battle'kins! A halloween themed game based on coordinates and battleships.

Battle'kins! A halloween themed game based on coordinates and battleships.

A resource which can be used as a lesson, revision or as a fun activity in the lead up to Halloween. Children take on the teacher. The teacher plots their pumpkins(15-20) around their grid. It is the job of the children to 'smash' all the pumpkins in the least number of guesses possible. Teachers can decide on rewards for successful hits. A bonus reward is to be given if a child finds the witch! The game can also be played in pairs, without the teacher's involvement. The grids are provided and there a 3 levels of difficulty.

Examples of algebraic and geometric proof

Examples of algebraic and geometric proof

This document contains examples of proofs, one algebraic, one geometric and one number related one. They are NOT necessarily exemplars. In fact the third one (C) in particular leaves a lot to be desired. (so please no comments criticising my maths :) ) I use these as discussion material to get students to start to think about what mathematicians mean by proof and what a good one might look like. From the discussions we pull out success criteria for a good proof. I'd be interested to know how others might use this resource so please share your experiences.
