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.
