# Graph Match

## Match the graphs with their equations. A self-marking, drag-and-drop mathematical exercise.

##### GradientLevel 1Level 2Level 3Exam-StyleDescriptionHelpMore Graph Activities

This is Level 1 (Linear graphs and equations). Match the graphs with the corresponding equations.

$$y = x$$

$$y = x + 1$$

$$y = 2-x$$

$$y = - x$$

$$y = 2x + 5$$

$$y = 2x + 1$$

$$y = \frac12 x + 3$$

$$y = 2x − 1$$

$$y = 4 - \frac12 x$$

$$y = x + 2$$

$$y = x - 1$$

$$y = x + 3$$

The diagrams were created in Autograph.

## Description of Levels

Gradient - A pre-requisite for doing the graph exercises is being able to calculate the gradient of a line.

Level 1 - Linear graphs and equations

Level 2 - Linear and quadratic graphs and equations

Level 3 - Mixed polynomials

Exam Style questions are in the style of GCSE or IB/A-level exam paper questions and worked solutions are available for Transum subscribers.

More on this topic including lesson Starters, visual aids and investigations.

Answers to this exercise are available lower down this page when you are logged in to your Transum account. If you don’t yet have a Transum subscription one can be very quickly set up if you are a teacher, tutor or parent.

For straight line graphs arrange the equation in the form $$y = mx + c$$ where $$m$$ represents the gradient of the line and $$c$$ the y-intercept.

Maybe this video will remind you of some of the techniques for recognising graphs.

Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

Comment recorded on the 17 November 'Starter of the Day' page by Amy Thay, Coventry:

"Thank you so much for your wonderful site. I have so much material to use in class and inspire me to try something a little different more often. I am going to show my maths department your website and encourage them to use it too. How lovely that you have compiled such a great resource to help teachers and pupils.
Thanks again"

Comment recorded on the 19 October 'Starter of the Day' page by E Pollard, Huddersfield:

"I used this with my bottom set in year 9. To engage them I used their name and favorite football team (or pop group) instead of the school name. For homework, I asked each student to find a definition for the key words they had been given (once they had fun trying to guess the answer) and they presented their findings to the rest of the class the following day. They felt really special because the key words came from their own personal information."

#### Car Park Puzzle

Can you get your car out of the very crowded car park by moving other cars forwards or backwards? There are five levels of increasing difficulty and the interactive interface makes this a fun problem solving exercise.

There are answers to this exercise but they are available in this space to teachers, tutors and parents who have logged in to their Transum subscription on this computer.

A Transum subscription unlocks the answers to the online exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It also provides the teacher with access to quality external links on each of the Transum Topic pages and the facility to add to the collection themselves.

Subscribers can manage class lists, lesson plans and assessment data in the Class Admin application and have access to reports of the Transum Trophies earned by class members.

## Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.
