Graphs for Science – Level 1

Requirements:

This topic is relevant to experimental data and graphical work needed in Integrated Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Topics in this course are recommended for further Forms 1-3 students as prerequisite for Form 4 – 5 graphical work (See Course: Graphs for Science – Level 2). Past Paper type questions used are modeled after the CSEC and Cambridge IGCSE Exams.

Tools you will need for this class:

  • A graph book or loose graph pages.
  • A long transparent ruler
  • A mechanical pencil or a sharp sharpened normal pencil.
  • Eraser
  • A YouTube account using the same email address that you made your account here with to view the lesson videos.

At the end of this topic you should be able to:

  • Interpret and use graphs
  • Title a graph.
  • Label axes.
  • Select appropriate scales.
  • Plot coordinates correctly.
  • Draw line/curve of best fit.
  • Understand the reasons why a ‘best fit’ line gives the best average value of the gradient or intercept.

Each lesson contains:

  • A Lesson Video
  • Printable Notes
  • Self correcting Quizzes or Assignments to upload to be corrected by the teacher.
