This DfE Standards Unit resource, contains activities designed to support students when learning to
understand the relationship between graphical, algebraic and tabular representations of functions,
the nature of proportional, linear, quadratic and inverse functions
doubling and squaring.
Students should already be familiar with algebraic symbols such as those representing squares, square roots and fractions, which are revised during the introduction. Most students will already be familiar with making tabular representations of functions and drawing graphs, but they may not have considered the relations between different representations of functions.
Card sorts, group work and discussion are used to extend pupils exiting knowledge with links to a number of other objectives
These materials exemplify the ideas and approaches adopted in the Standards Unit pilot. To get best value from them use them in association with the guidance and other materials in Improving Learning in Mathematics: Challenges and Strategies.
