This lesson covers all the advanced graphs of functions in the 9-1 GCSE, suitable for Edexcel and AQA. This includes reciprocal graphs, exponential graphs, and sine, cosine, and tangent graphs. The topics cover grades 5-8. It assumes students have already been introduced to quadratic and cubic graphs.
The lesson objectives from the syllabus are:
Plot reciprocal and exponential graphs
Recognise, sketch, and interpret graphs of the reciprocal function, exponential functions and trigonometric functions (sin x, cos x, tan x) for any angle
The PowerPoint is a very flexible resource as it can also be divided into two separate lessons: Reciprocal & exponential graphs and trigonometric graphs. This can be useful if you would like the students to spend more time doing independent work on the topics or if you will not be covering grade 8 topics such as trigonometric graphs.
