This is a complete lesson on interpreting straight line graphs that teaches students how to analyse information from linear graphs and how to use those graphs to solve equations. The lesson is designed with the new GCSE specification in mind.

- To interpret and analyse information presented in a range of linear graphs.
- To solve linear equations using graphs.

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

Included in this download are the following:

- Full lesson plan for the ‘Interpreting Straight Line Graphs’ lesson, including introduction, teaching content, individual activities, plenary and suggested support and extension activities
- Blank Mind Map
