So you want to find the gradient of straight lines the easy way? Well this is the video for you. I will show you how to find gradients and how they relate to the equation of a straight line so you can smash Maths! There are lots of worked examples too!!!

This video is the next in the Linear Relationships series and looks at Lines with One Intercept. Can there really be lines which only cut the x- or y-axis once? Yup! Think about horizontal lines. Think about vertical lines. Think about lines which go through the origin. These are all excellent examples and the video is full of helpful information. There are lots of worked examples and I do all I can to make it amusing and useful.

Linear relationships is a massive part of the Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 courses. Being able to draw graphs is going to be really important. This next video in the series will show you how to draw straight lines from intercepts. This really easy concept seems to confuse many students, so hopefully this video will help you. There are lots of worked examples and explained using plain English and lots of humour. Why not try something different.

Have you ever wondered why we need Scientific Notation? What it's used for? How to convert numbers from and to Scientific Notation? No?! Me either really, but I thought I'd take the time to explain what they are and what they are used for. This is part of the Year 9 Maths Series on Index Numbers and Surds. It is explained using my unique sense of humour and with lots of worked examples. There is even a section extending you!

This video looks at what a negative Index is and how we can simplify Negative Indices by using a simple reciprocal rule. I use humour and my tragic past loves to explain that you can solve negative index questions pretty quickly and easily. There are lots of worked examples too

This video is the first in a new series on Linear Relationships at a Year 9 level. Introduction to Linear Relationships does exactly what it says on the tin. I take a look at all the work you are going to need to be able to access the rest of the content. Whilst the video is a little long(!) I do take time to explain everything you are going to need. There is humour and lots of worked examples so you will become a guru in this topic.

This video looks at the final two Index laws; namely, Index Law 4 and 5. These look at extending the laws we have previously discovered. Using Rule 3, we can adapt it to help us use index laws with Fractions! I know .. who likes fractions, right? But I show how to make it easy with lots of worked examples and explanations which just make sense!

Building on the previous videos in the series, this video looks at Index Law 3 and the Zero Power. The zero power is really handy and used in a lot of exams to try and trick students! So I spend more time looking at what a zero power means and how it can be used to trick you. I then look at how Index Law 3 works (which is powers of powers). There are lots of worked examples and explanations which are designed to help you understand what you are doing. No more confusing maths! Using a mix of humour and explanation I hope to ensure that the Mathematics taught in this topic is entertaining and helpful for all levels of students.

This video looks at Index Laws 1 and 2. I take time to show not only what the laws are, but how they are created. I think it's really important to ensure that you understand what you are doing! There are lots of worked examples which show you how to use Laws 1 and 2. Using a mix of humour and explanation I hope to ensure that the Mathematics taught in this topic is entertaining and helpful for all levels of students.
