Summary

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...

The lessons are designed to develop deep understanding so students master the mathematical concepts and techniques involved.

Heather Davis. Professional Development Lead, NCETM

The worksheets are well written and the students seemed comfortable with the format. Some interesting questions too, which fit well with the new GCSE course.

Tamsin Woolford. Mathematics teacher, Clayesmore School
