Identifying Linear Functions from Graphs
Keep your mathematicians engaged using this group linear functions activity. Each of ten groups receives two graphs with both an image and equation, as well as a "who has" phrase to call out the next graph. Scholars stay on their toes as you move through the graphs, showing each on a transparency and then challenging groups to see if they have the next described graph.

Creating Linear Models for Data 4
With this resource, high schoolers solve 17 types of problems related to the transformation of linear functions. First, they define parent function and determine how other linear functions compare to the parent function. Then, pupils explain how rate of change affects the graph of a line and how positive and negative values for slope affect the graph of a line.

Functions - Intro and Inverses
Define the terms domain, range, function, vertical limit test, and linear function notation with your class. They can then, graph several equations applying the vertical line test to determine which are and which are not functions, write their own equations, identifying them as functions or not, while providing reasons to support their identification.

Math may have one right answer, but there can be multiple ways to find that answer. Input and output are the foundation of functions, and this activity allows pupils to chose their method to solve for a future output. Bring this activity into your classroom and let your learners practice with graphing, tables, or equations to find the solution from given data.

Interesting Polynomial Coefficient Problem
This is an interesting problem that approaches higher degree polynomials from a different perspective. Given a third degree polynomial, two known zeros, and a y-intercept, find the value of the polynomialÕs coefficients. This problem challenges the learner to gain a deeper understanding of zeros, graphs of polynomials, factors, and the algebra behind multiplying polynomials.
