This is a complete lesson on equations of parallel and perpendicular lines that looks at how to generate lines that are parallel or perpendicular to a given line and use the rule for the gradients of such lines. The lesson is designed with the new GCSE specification in mind.

- To generate lines that are parallel and perpendicular to a given line.
- To use the rules for gradients of parallel and perpendicular lines.

This pack is designed for GCSE higher tier students. It could also be used with high ability Key Stage 3 students.
