This video will guide students through the process of determining the equation of a line.

- Analysing a line on a Cartesian plane to determine it
- Plot lines on a Cartesian Plane.

- Plot points in a straight line going through the origin
- Use the gradient formula m = rise/run
- Allow students to see the pattern y = mx
- What happens if the line does not go through the origin?
- Show how the y intercept works.
- Practice making equations form lines and plotting equations.

1.Watch the Video Pixel Power! Part 2. It will take the students through the concept of plotting a line to the use of the equation format y = mx + c

2. Students make their own cartesian plane and make a series of lines in their own choice of blocks. Using signs, place the equation next to a block on the ground representing that line. For example, make a diamond block line. Place a diamond block on the ground with a sign on it showing the equation.

3. Give students equations and challenge them to plot them!

- Be able to plot lines on a Cartesian Plane
- Be able to calculate the gradient of all lines
- Be able to determine the y intercept of a line.
- Be able to create the line equation using the gradient and y intercept.
- Be able to plot a line form it's equation.
