Gradient of a line
  • to find and describe the gradient of a straight line from a graph
  • to find and describe the gradient of a straight line using the coordinates of two points on the line

Quadrilateral midpoints
  • to describe the relationships between the midpoints of the sides of a quadrilateral

Linear patterns
  • to be able to identify linear patterns in a table of values and on graphs



Features of linear equations and graphs
  • to describe the relationship between the parts of the general linear equation and
the properties of the graph of the linear equation



Sketching linear equations
  • to sketch linear equations given:
- the gradient and the y - intercept
- two coordinates of two points


Linear Equations

Content:
Learning goal
Resources
Review of building equations
  • to be able to recognise how an equation was "built up from x "so that we know which operation needs to "undone first" when solving an equation


Solving linear equations with 2 steps
  • to solve linear equations where 2 solution steps are required
Ex 6.7 from your text book
Solving linear equations with 3 or more steps
  • to solve linear equations where 3 or more solutions steps are required
Ex 6.8 from your text book
Solving linear equations with the variable on both sides
  • to solve linear equations where the variable appears on both sides of the equation
Ex 6.9 from your text book
Solving literal equations (transposing formulae)
  • to solve linear equations where there is more than one variable
  • to transpose equations to make other variables the subject of the equation
Ex 6.11 from your text book
