BBC Bitesize: graphs - revision

These illustrated information sheets revise the rules for vertical and horizontal lines and the meaning of m and c in the rule y = mx + c. Students find the rule for a given linear graph. Tables of values are created so that graphs can be plotted. This resource is one of a series of online resources from the BBC's Bitesize ...

reSolve: Real World Algebra: Linear Functions

This sequence of two lessons explores real world, algebraic, numeric and graphical representations of linear functions, focussing on the gradient of linear functions. Students use images of everyday objects and inscribe straight lines, then use Geogebra to explore the algebraic representation of their lines. Each lesson ...
