In this lesson plan students have learnt how to graph the gradient of line through two points and through rise/run form. The next lesson would continue
with finding the vertical intercept and representing the linear equation in gradient intercept formula.

Reflection: The lesson plan has focussed on teaching students how to find the slope of the line from the graph and from two points. The lesson plan has
incorporated visual images for visual learners and brainstorming activity for students to refresh their prior knowledge. However, the duration of time
required to complete this lesson might not be enough and necessary care should be taken.

Stage6 General Mathematics

Assessment 1: AM2 Interpreting Linear Relationships (Term2 Week2 Lesson 5)
Graphing Linear Equations Project

This is a preliminary general mathematics assessment task. Students are given a project where they have to graph linear equations and have completed
necessary learning in this area prior to the task.
Outcomes Assessed:
MGP-2: Students represent information in symbolic, graphical and tabular form.
MGP-3: Students represent the relationships between changing quantities in algebraic and graphical form.
MGP-10: Student justifies a response to a given problem using appropriate mathematical terminology.

Task (50 marks)

Students are required to find how the graph of the line and the slope intercept form are related when there are different values of m and b.
STEP 1: Students will pair with their clock buddies, and will form three original linear equations which are different. (3marks)
STEP 2: The equations should be formed based on the following criteria. (6 marks)
The value of m and b should be less than five

The first equation should have values (m & b) as positive numbers.

The second equation should have m as positive number and b as negative number

The third equation should have m as negative number and b as positive number.
18508550 Maths 2A

One of the value of m should be at least a fractional number for any of the equations.

The value of the gradient and y intercept should be less than or equal to five.

STEP 3: Once you have finished creating all the three equations, identify and describe the type of slope and the y intercept of the graph in words. (6 marks)
STEP 4: Sketch the functions on the graph paper. (6 marks)
STEP 5: Students have to join with an other pair and graph totally six equations on the field. (3 of one group+ 3 of another group). (24 marks)
Note: No three equations should be the same as others groups equations.
Students should graph each function on the field where one student represents the y intercept and the other student will walk of the slope.

Marking criteria should be handed out to the teacher prior to the task.

Students have to explain briefly to the teacher about the the affects in graph when the variables are changed.

Students might be asked questions by the teacher regarding the graphing.

STEP 6: Students should provide a brief description in words about what they have learned through this field activity.
