Quadratic Graphs: What do you know?

Quadratic Graphs: What do you know?

Quadratics: What do you know about this quadratic? Students are given a quadratic equation and asked to work out: its factors where it crosses the axes what its graph would look like what it would be in completed square format where its minimum point is They are then given three other quadratics to work on, but are provided with different starting information - i.e., if they have the graph, can they work out the factors? Updated May 2018 Now with 2 additional bonus activities: Properties of Quadratic Graphs Worksheets Students have to identify the roots, turning point, y intercept and line of symmetry from a graph or function. Recognising Quadratic Graphs Activity Students have to match quadratic graphs to their functions by considering roots, y -intercepts and whether the co-efficient of x^2 is positive or negative. All activities include answers.

Cubics: Expanding and factorising

Cubics: Expanding and factorising

With factorising and removing brackets of cubics being new to the GCSE specifications last year I have introduced these two lesson to my class teaching. Starting with removal of brackets students are able to extend from the two brackets situation to the three brackets. The following lesson looks at the more complicated factorising a cubic. Initially starting with the first factor given style of question before looking at factorising with no hint given. Worksheets are given for both lessons which could be used in class or as a piece of homework.

Guitars and String Vibrations

Guitars and String Vibrations

In this lesson, students apply their understanding of direct and inverse variation to making music with guitar strings. Students learn the equation governing the relationship between a string’s frequency, wave speed and length, and then use a digital guitar simulation to calculate the wave speeds and string lengths needed to create common chords. After playing through a simple song as a class, students construct and tune cardboard ukuleles to make their learning tangible. Topics addressed: Direct and inverse variation Basic physics of string vibrations and waves Primary CT concept: abstraction. The frequency equation uses a simplified wave speed parameter to represent physical concepts like string thickness and tension, and students abstract the detailed math away when building their physical ukuleles. Students will be able to: Explain how length and wave speed affect the frequency of a vibrating string Explain how guitar strings are able to play different notes Create a simple cardboard ukulele with strings tuned to different notes Materials: PowerPoint presentation Student handout Digital guitar simulation Cardboard boxes – shoeboxes will work, or you can order something like these from Home Depot Extra large rubber bands in at least three different sizes Wooden dowels A guitar is optional, but will help students connect their learning to a real instrument Suggested lesson breakdown: This activity is more of a practice/review project than a teaching tool, and therefore works best towards the end of the unit. Students can work individually or in pairs. The timing suggestions below are estimated and are very flexible based on your students’ pace. 10min – introduction to string vibrations and the frequency formula 10min – quick practice and check for understanding 10min – calculating wave speeds in the digital guitar simulator 20min – calculating string lengths for chords in the digital guitar simulator 5min – class play-along to “Imagine” by John Lennon 15min – constructing and playing cardboard ukuleles

Plotting straight line graphs (implicit equations)

Plotting straight line graphs (implicit equations)

Students are provided with structure to facilitate plotting straight line graphs of implicit equations. The worksheet is split into two sections, progressing in difficulty, and each has an extension section. For very able students a further extension could be to find the points of intersection without having to plot the lines, although it is generally beneficial for their understanding to have a visual representation available as well. Answers are provided, including the plotted straight lines. The focus of this lesson could be any of the following: – Plotting straight line graphs; – Rearranging equations; – Simultaneous equations; – Intersection of straight lines; – What it means to ‘satisfy’ an equation; – Implicit vs explicit equations. As you can see, many concepts are touched upon here, and you will need to decide which angle you are approaching this activity from to ensure that the lesson is coherent. Also included is a basic starter to give practise rearranging to change the subject of an equation.

(I promise this will save you a lot of time - as this took me hours!!) I have tried them out with a low ability group and they love them as they really feel like they are getting used to the papers without having to do the same paper over and over again. Great for last minute revision and masterclasses . Topics I have included: Proportion, Types of number, Calculator Skills, Ordering Fractions, Mean from a table Pie Charts, Graphs, Angles , transformations, Construction and Loci, Standard Form Area and Perimeter, Probability, Tree Diagrams, Estimation, Wordy Problems, Trig and Pythag, and a general revision sheets labelled the final countdown aimed at the first NON CALC exam.
