### Voronoi Diagrams - Calculate

This unit of work explores coordinate geometry in the context of Voronoi diagrams. Students use linear coordinate geometry to construct Voronoi diagrams by finding the gradient of a line segment, then finding the midpoint, a perpendicular line and finally the perpendicular bisector.

### Graphs: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Graphs. Students work with points, straight lines and line segments on the Cartesian plane, and use the coordinates of points to apply the formulas for calculating the gradient, midpoint and length of a line segment (distance between two points). They use digital tools ...

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 ...

### Laptop wrap: Parallelendicular

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.

### Coordinate geometry

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 ...

### Laptop wrap – a slippery slope

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.

### 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 ...
