Teacher guide Coordinate geometry

TLF ID M013746

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 contain interactive questions for students to check their progress in the topic




Educational details

Educational value
  • This resource is valuable for both teachers and students for the year 9 Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. It is particularly relevant to the content descriptions about working with the Cartesian plane to calculate the distance between two points and the gradient and midpoint of a line segment.
  • It supports finding the distance between two points and the midpoint and gradient of a line segment (interval) on a Cartesian plane using strategies including graphing software, sketching linear graphs using coordinates of two points and solving linear equations.
  • The resource may be useful in helping students achieve that element of the year 9 achievement standards that refers to students finding the distance between two points and the gradient and midpoint of a line segment on the Cartesian plane, as well as sketching linear and non-linear relations.
