This sequence of two lessons investigates gradient and angle by applying the tangent ratio to find the angles represented by a road sign or the angle of a street. In the first lesson, students research what a road grade is and determine the actual angle of a road given its grade. They then construct their own road sign ...
These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use different representations ...
Students construct a series of GeoGebra applets that investigate the parameters gradient and intercepts of straight lines. They reinforce this knowledge with Microsoft Math 3.0.
Distance, midpoint and gradient are investigated as students design an Excel spreadsheet and make a Smart Notebook presentation on ski-lifts. Students then contribute to a discussion on the steepest street in the world.
This is a 22-page guide for teachers. The module introduces the idea of direct proportion and illustrates its many uses in science, commerce and measurement. It looks at ratios, gradients and fractions. A history of the development and use of proportion concludes the module.
This is a website designed for both teachers and students that addresses coordinate geometry from the Australian Curriculum for year 9 students. It contains material that shows the connection between algebra and geometry through graphs of lines and curves. There are pages for both teachers and students. The student pages ...
This is a 22-page guide for teachers. This module introduces coordinate geometry. The introduction includes finding the distance between two points, finding the coordinates of the midpoint between two points, determining the gradient of a line and determining the equation of a line.
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 ...
