6 People Maths  Creating impact  Adding enthusiasm  K & V learning styles

7 Year 9 Set 2  Level 6  To represent mappings expressed algebraically  To use Cartesian co-ordinates for graphical representation, interpreting general features

8 Use of WOWO boards  Starter: given an equation, students had to choose an x co-ordinate (an integer between -4 and +4) and calculate the associated y value. Answers had to be expressed as a co-ordinate pair (x,y) on WOWO boards

10 Use of ICT  Autograph 3

11 People Maths  The floor as 4 quadrants

12 People Maths  Plotting y=2x + 3

33 VAK Feedback  “They say that if a lesson is fun, kids learn better. And I like people maths because it is fun.”  “I like the Plenary TV because it is funny to watch the people talk about the lesson.”
