Linear Relationships

Preview of

Resource Type: Matching Activity, Worksheet - Print

For Year 9 Stage 5.3 Linear Relationships I trialled something new this year. 

First I used / modified Stuart Palmer's worksheets as an introduction to the topic and to the concepts of distance, midpoint and gradient. See the first attachment.

Second I went further into creating connections between concepts without explicitly teaching each formula separately. See the second attachment.

Towards the end of the topic I put together a formula and definition matching activity.

Some students disliked the fact that they were not learning one formula / concept a lesson. Some enjoyed the fact that they could see the link between the equation, formula and graph easier.

Thank you so much Morgan! I literally just sat down to create a resource similar to this using Stuart’s template and found your work - much appreciated!
