Graphing Linear Equations in Standard Form by Using Intercepts – Video

This is how my students graph linear equations in standard form ( Ax + By = C):

Translating Functions

Description: In this activity students learn about and practice how to translate functions, and identify translations from equations of functions.

Comparing Linear and Expontential Functions

Description: In this activity students compare linear and exponential models by listing their characteristics side-by-side in a table.

Lilly’s Mussels – A Modeling Exercise

Description: Apply a linear and exponential model to a small data set in order to explore the differences in growth pattern, depending on which model is selected.

Make Me Rich

Description: In this activity, students explore a variety of functions through four different payment plans. They must select the best payment plan for different conditions.

Describing Graphs

Description: In this activity students write the story of a race between four sisters, given a graph of the race. Students also have the opportunity for interactive practice with drawing and interpreting graphs. Finally, there is a practice section in which students identify appropriate graphs for given scenarios.
