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.

What people say...
I am really pleased with the resources for the Unit 8 'Crude Oil and Fuels' so far. As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically. This has been particularly useful as I have been tasked with picking up this course with students that are already midway through their GCSE and the commentary has provided me with useful guidance of what students should have covered in earlier modules and there are also activities that recap earlier learning. The fact that the resources are so thorough and there is a WS and HWK for every lesson, has saved me a huge amount of planning time as there is already plenty for students to do. All I have had to do is add a little further differentiated practice as and when my students needed it. I will definitely be looking at buying other modules too.

A fantastic set of resources to support both teachers and students in the delivery of the new computing curriculum. We would be lost without it.
