Further Mathematics Workshop

Stowupland High School

8th November 2005

See next slide for details of how the lesson on curve sketching was organised

Lesson followed the slides in this presentation
  • “Role play” involved the students in a warm up exercise where they modelled, using their arms, the graphs
  • Syllabus specification and key words were then covered with explanation
  • Sketching the function (slide 7 ) was a teacher led explanation
  • Card matching activity used resource sheets that accompany this lesson
  • Students were then given the handout with the opportunity to make their own notes against the six card matching graphs, explaining to themselves how the key features were identified
  • Final activity was in pairs working on the questions at the end of the handout
role play
y = 0

x = 0

y = x

y = -x

x = -y

y = x2

y = - x2

x = y2

y = x3

y = -x3

y = sin x

y = cos x

y = tan x

y = sin2x + cos2x

Role Play
more role play
More role play……

G y = x

M y = 2x

G y = x2

M y = 2x2

G y = x2

M y = (x-1)2

G y = 1/x, x < 0

M y = 1/x, x > 0

G y = 1/x2, x < 0

M y = 1/x2, x < 0

this time in pairs! One person to be George and the other person Mildred.George to always stand in front of Mildred.



  • Treatment and sketching of graphs of rational functions.
  • FP1C1
  • Be able to sketch the graph of y=f(x) obtaining information about symmetry, asymptotes parallel to the axes, intercepts with the co-ordinate axes, behaviour near x=0 and for numerically large x.
  • Be able to ascertain the direction from which a curve approaches an asymptote.
  • Be able to use a curve to solve an inequality.
key words
Key words
  • Rational function
    • A function which can be expressed as N(x)/D(x) where N(x) and D(x) are both polynomials and D(x) is not the zero polynomial.
  • Polynomial
    • F(x) = a0+a1x+a2x2+a3x3+…..+anxn
  • Asymptote
    • a straight line towards which a curve approaches but ever meet
  • Sketch
    • show axis intersections, asymptotes, and behaviour of the graph either side of any asymptote.
sketch the graph y 3 x 2 x 4 x
Sketch the graph y = (3-x)/(2-x)(4-x)
  • check where graph crosses axes.
  • look for vertical asymptotes.
  • find behaviour as x approaches infinity.
  • consider approach towards asymptotes.
  • check with Autograph or graphical calculator
card matching activity
Card matching activity
  • match the six graphs with the six equations
