Find a Rule - Two Step Lesson

This Year 6 Find a Rule - Two Step lesson covers the prior learning of finding a rule with one step, before moving onto the main skill of finding a rule in function machines with two steps.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
