Students describe graphically, algebraically and verbally real-world phenomena as functions; identify the independent and the dependent variable. They translate among graphic, algebraic, and verbal representations of relations and graph relations and functions and find the zeros of functions. Finally, students write and interpret an equation of a curve (linear) which models a set of data.
Learners analyze the sliding of boxes along a warehouse floor. In this algebra lesson, students connect math and physics by calculating the friction created by the sliding of each box. They develop faster method to move the box, based on their data collection on friction.
Challenge your young scholars' algebra skills with this activity, which presents students with several types of problem sets, including solving inequalities, graphing, word problems, and a set of algebra problems that may or may not require correction by the young scholars. This activity could function well as a long-term homework assignment or midterm.
This activity looks at polynomial operations from a grahing perspective. Using the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division on polynomials, learners investigate graphs. In addition, regression modeling is done and compared to algebraic results.
Students explore the concept of iteration, recursion, and algebra to analyze a changing fish population. In this iteration, recursion, and algebra lesson plan, students explore the effects a change in a parameter has on a graph. Students use an applet to change parameters of a fish population and see the effect on the graph.
