Part A – Measure of Slope

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’

Objective To gain a mathematical understanding of a measure of slope.
ResourcesLesson plan
Pre-task – steepness
Card set
Sample Responses to Discuss
Steepness re-visited
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
