Mathematics Mastery

Summary

This unit considers the construction, properties and interpretation of linear and quadratic graphs.   With an emphasis on developing mastery, the unit begins by recapping on 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 from the gradient and y-intercept.  Graphs in context such as distance-time graphs are considered next, where gradient is interpreted in context.  The unit concludes with a focus on quadratic graphs; plotting them and understanding key features such as the roots, shape and symmetry of the graph.   Simple examples of finding approximate solutions to quadratic equations from a graph are given.

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

Supply teachers or cover supervisors can be given the PowerPoint presentations to run the lesson. I only wish I had this available when I was head of department. I would have been able to set work quickly, knowing that the material was covered, explanations were sound and the practice questions were well supported.
