One of my grade 8 students was working on the graphical solution method for simultaneous equations. 4x - 5y = 14 3x + y = 1 He plotted the lines on the graph paper and as expected, lines cut at ( 1, -2 ) He knew that the intersection point is the solution for such... Continue Reading →

Most students learn about Co-ordinate geometry in Grade 7 or Grade 8 and this is how we usually introduce this topic to them: We draw two perpendicular lines on the graph, name the intersection point as 'origin' and introduce x & y coordinates to represent any point on the plane. Then, we tell them the... Continue Reading →
