The picture shows some curves in the family of y = x cubed. Can you find the graph of this function and the equations of the other graphs? In this workshop guide you will find more examples of this type of ‘inverse problem’ where the learner is given information and has to […]
Graphs and equations of 7 quadratic functions are given here.
Match them and put them into 7 sets. Write down the coordinates of the intercepts with the axes.
Make a poster showing the graph of each function with the matching equations.
In all these examples the coefficient of […]
The graphs and some properties of seven quadratic functions are given here.
The equation of each function is given in three different forms.
Match the graph of each function with the matching equations and properties.
This activitiy is linked to Quadratic Matching 1 which you […]
How could I make graph 2 from graph 1? Can you work out the equation of graph 2?
Graph 3 has equation y=sin2x. […]
How do the points where the graph cuts the x axis relate to the axis of symmetry of the graph and the solutions of the quadratic equation ?
Draw a sketch graph of each of the following functions:
if a > […]
Comparing investments: there are six investments. Find all the representations (description, formula, graph and table of values) of a single investment. After this, work out which statement fits with which investment.
The teacher leads a very short discussion about the different types of investments, reminding the learners about simple and compound interest. He or […]
This lesson is about moving between different representations of distance-time functions, namely between graphs, stories and tables. This activity should be given to the class as a formative assessment activity: it is designed to provide the teacher with information about the learners’ current levels of understanding.
During a short introduction the teacher displays a […]
The graph shows the distance along a race track for two racing cars as they approach a bend in a race. Copy the table below, take readings from the graph and fill in the table for the first 10 seconds.
How far does each car go in the 3rd second? How far […]
The ages of children arriving at a zoo in 1 hour are noted by the ticket salesman. There are 12 children between 0 and 3 years old, 14 children between 4 and 10 years old and 48 between 11 and 18 years old.
He draws a bar graph or frequency diagram to represent this […]
The data shows how many goals the teams scored in their matches.
There are six sets of data, three showing the results for Alpha United and three for Beta Rovers.
Match the data to the teams and explain your answers.
See the […]
