This is 4 whole lessons teaching all the different aspects of linear graphs and is very thorough with loads of extra resources, worksheets etc.. included.
1. Linear Graphs - Introduction
2. Linear Graphs - Finding the equation of the Line
3. Linear Graphs - Finding the gradient
4. Linear Graphs - Further and Problems
This is generally a topic that is done very poorly in exams and one that pupils especially at KS3 struggle with. These lessons are designed for pupils at KS3. With weaker groups, I tend to repeat lesson 2 twice (additional worksheet provided).
I reviewed this subject after one of my past year 8 group struggled on this profoundly and I think now in terms of pedagogy this is now one of my most organised, structured and effective teaching topics. Four lessons for some might feel a lot, but it is worth taking the time to really get to grips with this topic, especially considering its understanding is still important at KS4 and KS5 maths.
All lessons in this series include starters, lesson objectives, keywords, very clear teaching examples, use of MWB, questions or worksheet with answers and plenaries. It also includes BLANK AXIS for questions so that pupils don't spend five minutes drawing axis's.
