Learning objective : to be able to calculate the gradient of a line given a graph
This lesson and all resources have been taken and adapted from the Maths Assessment Project lesson ‘Creating a Measure of Slope’
|To gain a mathematical understanding of a measure of slope.
Pre-task – steepness
Sample Responses to Discuss
Squared paper required for pre-task and Steepness re-visited.Protractors and tracing paper may be required when discussing sample responses.
Part B – Gradient
Students can find this concept particularly challenging so there is an additional lesson here to consolidate and prepare for y=mx + c next lesson
