There are 7 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This unit considers the properties and uses of straight line graphs. With an emphasis on developing mastery, the unit begins by revisiting coordinates; reading and plotting values and finding the mid-point between two points. Equations of horizontal and vertical lines are explored and developed. Linear graphs are constructed from tables and an understanding of the form y = mx + c is developed and used to solve problems. The gradient and y-intercept of a straight line graph are explored, and skills developed so that students can plot a straight line without a table of values, from the gradient and y-intercept. Using context, the unit continues to develop skills in finding the equation of a line between two given points and a line with a given gradient that passes through a single given point. Reasoning problems are presented to support the development of students’ ability to apply their knowledge.
