This class is for those students who want to be really confident about drawing and interpreting graphs and answering those hardest to reach GCSE questions. We will use exam questions to demonstrate different contexts to assess wider knowledge and understanding.
Thursday 28th October at 7:00 PM 60 mins
For this session, students will practice skills in substitution and changing the subject of a formula. Tips will include how to complete a table of values, how to avoid lots of unnecessary calculations, and how to complete using a linear, quadratic, or cubic value.
Thursday 4th November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
Templates will be e-mailed to the students before the lesson so that all students can practice drawing and understanding linear and quadratic graphs, quirks include negative values and y = x. A graph-based question could be worth up to 5 marks on a GCSE paper so it is really important that students have a firm understanding.

Where do the two lines meet? How to solve a simultaneous equation using a graph? These exam questions will be considered in this lesson. Showing students how to be a mathematician and answer all of the graph-related questions.
Thursday 18th November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
The final session in this class will use the graphs drawn in lesson 2 to answer some further questions not discussed already, how to calculate the gradient of a line, how to know where the points of intersection are, and a more advanced skill how to find a turning point on a quadratic graph.
