# Graph Match

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

This is Level 3 (Mixed polynomials). Match the graphs with the corresponding equations.

$$y = (x-2)^2$$

$$y = \frac7x$$

$$y = 3-(x-3)^2$$

$$y = 2x+6$$

$$y = \frac12 x + 2$$

$$y = -3$$

$$y = x+ \frac13 x^3-2$$

$$y = 4-x$$

$$y = 3-(x+3)^2$$

$$y = \frac12 (x+2)^3$$

$$y = x^2-7$$

$$y = 8$$

The diagrams were created using the online Graph Plotter.

## 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

Level 4 - Quadratics in the form $$ax^2 + bx + c$$ given information about the coefficients

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 9 October 'Starter of the Day' page by Mr Jones, Wales:

"I think that having a starter of the day helps improve maths in general. My pupils say they love them!!!"

Comment recorded on the 16 March 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs A Milton, Ysgol Ardudwy:

"I have used your starters for 3 years now and would not have a lesson without one! Fantastic way to engage the pupils at the start of a lesson."

#### Tran Towers

A mathematical adventure game in the enigmatic home of Transum. Create your own map as you go deeper and deeper into this maze of rooms looking for the clues to find the treasure room.

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.
