In this video we’re going to look at how to use substitution in equations to generate a table of ordered pairs. Ordered pairs (coordinates) can be used to solve equations, to plot graphs, and so we come across them a lot in Maths.
You should already know how to substitute into equations, and how to solve simple equations. We have this relationship y = 3x + 1. The value of ‘y’ depends on what the value of ‘x’ is. So if ‘x’ is 2, then y is 7. This can be written an (2, 7). We can generate a table of values by substituting in different values of 'x' and finding the corresponding 'y' values.
Once we've generated a table of values, we can then write out the values as ordered pairs: (0, 1) (1, 4) (2, 7) (3, 10). Always write the ‘x’ value before the ‘y’ value (x, y) and not (y, x). The ‘x’ and ‘y’ are both known as variables, because they aren’t set values. They vary. Even more specifically, we call the ‘x’ the INDEPENDENT variable, because we can choose any value of ‘x’ randomly or independently. But the ‘y’ is known as the ‘DEPENDENT’ variable. Y depends upon the value of ‘x’.

Plants have developed responses called tropisms. A tropism is a growth in response to a stimulus; so light and water in the plant’s case.
There are different types of tropisms: Positive tropisms are when growth is towards the stimulus - so the plant growing towards the light to maximise the stimul

Enzymes are really important proteins, that speed up the rates of reactions such as in photosynthesis, respiration and protein synthesis.
The enzymes and substrates are always moving, and occasionally they collide at the right speed and
