Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free intersecting lines worksheet of 45 questions and answers
Intersecting lines are pairs of lines which intersect. If two lines in a plane are parallel lines, they will never intersect. All other pairs of lines will intersect. Perpendicular lines are lines which intersect at right angles.
We can find the point of intersection of two given lines graphically, by plotting both lines on the same set of axes. We can also find the point of intersection of two lines algebraically, by solving their equations simultaneously.
To determine what types of lines we have (intersecting, parallel, or perpendicular), we can examine the gradients of the lines. If the gradients are equal, the lines are parallel. If the product of the gradients is -1, they intersect and are perpendicular. All other combinations of gradients will give intersecting lines.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
Help your students feel confident with exam-style questions and the strategies they’ll need to answer them correctly with our dedicated GCSE maths revision programme.
Lessons are selected to provide support where each student needs it most, and specially-trained GCSE maths tutors adapt the pitch and pace of each lesson. This ensures a personalised revision programme that raises grades and boosts confidence.
