The c-book unit is a redesign of the c-unit ‘Coordinates and points’, and also targeting first-year secondary school students (12-13 years old). It has been design by a team of secondary school teacher and Education researchers. The sequence of activities contains three parts :
Part A: The main aim is to introduce and use a reference system and to justify the usefulness of the Cartesian coordinate system.
Part B: This second phase focuses on the use of an ordered pair (x,y) to locate a point on a graph, by means of the traditional board game ‘Battleship’.
Part C: The main goal of the third phase is to understand how points represent and communicate information about two magnitudes. Thus, a graph is a way to represent, visualize and give sense to data. Activities here introduce a quantitative interpretation of the points on a graph that could lead to a first introduction to functional relations between magnitudes.
