These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Pupils should be taught to plot and interpret graphs (including reciprocal graphs {and exponential graphs}) and graphs of non-standard functions in real contexts, to find approximate solutions to problems such as simple kinematic problems involving distance, speed and acceleration".

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Graph Paper Flexible graph paper which can be printed or projected onto a white board as an effective visual aid.
- Plotting Graphs Complete a table of values then plot the corresponding points to create a graph.
- Hurdles Race An animated distance time graph to be viewed while a student interprets the graph and comments on the race that produced the graph.
- Graph Plotter An online tool to draw, display and investigate graphs of many different kinds.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:

- "
*Marilou and Sam had a skiing race. Here is Marilouâ€™s speed-time graph from the start of the race.*" ... more - "
*The graph shows the distance travelled, in metres, of a commuter train as it pulls out of a station.*" ... more
