Graph Shots is an interactive
game that develops pupils' understanding
of distance/time graphs. Pupils compare
graphs with written accounts and video
footage of a football match, which
demonstrate a different key point
at each level of the game. Graph measurements
are taken as distance travelled from
the player's own goal line in the
time shown by the video timer.
There are six levels to the game:
- Level One - what does a horizontal
- Level Two - what does it mean
when a slope becomes steeper?
- Level Three - what does a downwards-sloping
- Levels Four-Six - practice makes
After each level pupils are given
an opportunity to record the key point
before moving onto the next level.
Finally pupils are given multiple-choice
questions to review their knowledge.
They can print out these questions
with their answers.
Graph shots could be used
to introduce or review concepts of
distance/time graphs wherever you
site them within your curriculum.
Teacher and pupil sheets are provided
to support this resource.
