Grades / Grade 8
Functions and Relationships
In this course, we will explore the concept of relationships and how they can be expressed mathematically. We will start by paying particular attention to flow diagrams that express relationships. Then we will move to describing these flow diagram relationships using variables and algebra. We then change direction slightly to learn how to plot points on the Cartesian plane. Finally, we will connect the Cartesian plane to the algebraic rules we developed earlier in the course. This will help us visualise our mathematical relationships more clearly than ever before.
If you want to get a headstart in getting to grips with these fundamentals, come and join us – we’d love to see you there!
