Algebra: Linear Graphs 2 - Finding the equations of straight Lines (+ resources)

Algebra: Linear Graphs 2 - Finding the equations of straight Lines (+ resources)

This is the second of a four lesson teaching series looking at all the different aspects of linear graphs. This is generally a topic that is done very poorly in exams and one that pupils especially at KS3 struggle with. These lessons are designed for pupils at KS3. With weaker groups I tend to repeat lesson 2 twice (additional worksheet provided), but will not lower the challenge to help them understand properly! 1. Linear Graphs - Introduction2. Linear Graphs - Finding the equation of the Line3. Linear Graphs - Finding the gradient4. Linear Graphs - Further and ProblemsI reviewed this subject after one of my past year 8 group struggled on this profoundly and I think now in terms of pedagogy this is now one of my most organised, structured and effective teaching topics. Four lessons for some might feel a lot, but it is worth taking the time to really get to grips with this topic, especially considering it's understanding is still important at KS4 and KS5 maths. All lessons in this series include starters, lesson objectives, key words, very clear teaching examples, use of MWB, questions or worksheet with answers and plenaries. It also includes BLANK AXIS for questions so that pupils don't spend five minutes drawing axis's.

Factorising - Double Bracket

Factorising - Double Bracket

A series of lessons (2-3) on factorising quadratics into double brackets. There is a recap on factorising into single brackets and then a RAG task on factorising into double brackets in various forms. There is also a separate RAG task on the difference of two squares. All tasks lead into problem solving questions aswell as allowing all pupils simplify algebraic fractions by factorising.All tasks are differentiated to at least 3 levels. There are reasoning and problem solving tasks which are suitable for the new curriculum. All tasks have solutions so that it is easy for the pupils to mark their work. This has been used and allowed pupils to master the skill and for the more able to develop their understanding
