Straight Line Graphs
In this section we are looking at Straight Line Graphs, and some of their properties.
An activity to practise drawing linear graphs from their equations.

Use this activity to explore the idea of gradient and how to calculate this measure of a line.

This activity (from Mr Barton) also explores the idea of gradient, but links it to the equation of a line.

Can you find the relationship between the gradients of parallel lines?

Explore the relationship between perpendicular lines.

Various Activities all built around one file to investigate how the equation of a straight line is related to the line it produces.

y = mx + c Activity (AGG)

Given random equations of straight lines, practise drawing the graphs of the lines, and then check your answer.

y= mx + c Activity (GGB)

Similar to the activity above but using GeoGebra, there are two activities to practice your skills with straight line graphs.

Use your knowledge of straight line graphs in this battle to destroy the most enemy ships. How many will you destroy?

After your last attack, the enemy have spread out the ships to make it more tricky to hit them. Can you still get them all?

One last attempt to escape your clutches, the ships have sailed even further from each other. Use your missiles and all your ingenuity to hunt them down!

Find the Lines 1 (AGG)

A lovely activity from Mr Barton, where there are several points attached to lines, and by moving the points, you have to find the equation of the line.
