Half Term: Autumn 2 Week Beginning: 4

Year: 9 Unit Title: Linear Sequences

Learning Objectives Learning Outcomes Recognise that equations of the form y = mx + c Understand what algebraic equation represents a correspond to straight-line graphs straight line Plot the graphs of linear functions, where y is given Extend this knowledge to drawing a graph using ICT explicitly in terms of x, on paper and using ICT.


Construct functions arising from real-life problems and Use real life contexts to draw straight lines plot their corresponding graphs. Generate terms of a sequence using term-to-term and position-to-term definitions of the sequence, on paper and using ICT. Use sequences with linear properties


Construct functions arising from real-life problems and plot their corresponding graphs; interpret graphs arising from real situations Investigate the gradients of parallel lines and lines To be able to spot connections between equations and perpendicular to these lines. lines that have the same gradient or different intercept Solve a pair of simultaneous linear equations; link a To use graphical representations to solve two algebraic graphical representation of an equation or a pair of equations at the same time equations to the algebraic solution; Starter Development Plenary Assessment
