These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Pupils should be taught to {calculate or estimate gradients of graphs and areas under graphs (including quadratic and other non-linear graphs), and interpret results in cases such as distance-time graphs, velocity-time graphs and graphs in financial contexts}".

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Fill Graph Pairs If the container is gradually filled with a steady flow of water which height-time graph would be produced?
- Travel Graphs Test your understanding of distance-time and speed-time graphs with this self-marking exercise.
- Travel Graphs Video Learn about distance-time graphs, speed-time graphs and how to interpret them.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:

- "
*The graph shows the height of water in a container over a period time during which the water enters the container at a constant rate.*" ... more - "
*The diagram is of a container which is filled with water entering at a constant rate.*" ... more - "
*The following diagram shows a distance-time graph of the movement of a fish.*" ... more - "
*A model train is placed on a length of straight track.*" ... more - "
*A motorbike moves from rest along a straight road. The graph below shows the speed, \(v\) in metres per second of the motorbike \(t\) seconds after it started to move.*" ... more - "
*The graph shows the temperature (\(T\)) of an unidentified flying object over a period of 10 seconds (\(t\)).*" ... more - "
*The graph shows the distance travelled, in metres, of a commuter train as it pulls out of a station.*" ... more - "
*Here is a speed-time graph for a go kart.*" ... more
