Functions and Relationships

In this course, we will set the foundations for functions work that will be built upon in the senior grades. We will learn about the Cartesian plane, plotting and reading coordinates, plotting graphs with a gradient and vertical and horizontal lines, determining the equation of graphs and finding the coordinates of points of intersection.

This course takes the basics one step further to provide some extended examples and questions for those learners who enjoy a challenge.
