Secondary mathematics: different representations

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 ...

EagleCat: linear graph

Explore the graphs of linear equations in the form y = mx + c. Observe changes to the gradient and y-intercept under various transformations. Alternately, change the equation and observe changes in the y-intercept or change the y-intercept and see how the equation changes.

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 ...

Simple coordinates game

This is an interactive resource about plotting and identifying points on the Cartesian plane. The resource can be used in one of two modes. In the View mode, the student can enter the coordinates, and the corresponding point is identified on the coordinate plane when the 'Plot' button is selected. In the Guess mode, the ...

Transformations of the plane

This is a website designed for both teachers and students that introduces some transformations of the plane using coordinates in the Cartesian plane. In particular, transformations, translations, reflections in an axis and rotations of multiples of 90 degrees are discussed. Coordinates are used to describe these transformations. ...
