This unit of work builds on work from Year 7 Summer 1. The lessons are included below to use as a recap if necessary.
The Desmos activity “Des-Face” was not included in Year 7 so could be a nice summary here.
|Pre-lesson 1||Coordinate squares|
|Pre-lesson 2||Coordinate rectangles|
|Pre-lesson 3||Horizontal and vertical lines|
|Pre-lesson 4||Des-face using Desmos – teacher guide|
As several of the lessons below require the use of computers or tablets, there may be an issue with booking equipment. The starred lessons can be left out, or completed at a later date.
