Graphing Linear Equations and Functions
Here is a complete chapter on graphing linear equations and functions. Learners review graphing points on a coordinate plane, graph lines and functions, and write linear equations.
Can We Handle the Truth? How are a Truth Table, a Logic Circuit and Boolean Algebra Related?
How does algebra relate to real life? High schoolers will construct and test computer chips to determine the function of each, and discuss real life applications of the Boolean Algebraic concept. Included are discussion questions, gender equity considerations, web links, a clear procedure, and all necessary worksheets. The format is a slide show.
Algebra 1 Unit 8 Review
For this math worksheet, students practice the techniques associated with algebra 1. This 5-page worksheet has many different types of problems for the students to solve.
In this functions worksheet, students complete word and number problems having to do with functions. Students complete 18 problems total. This is a very well-thought-out, and nicely-designed worksheet.
Well Oiled Functions: Enrichment
In this algebraic functions worksheet, learners write a function to determine the relationship between people and barrels of oil used. They research the population of the 10 largest cities in their state and use this functional relationship to calculate the number of barrels and gallons of oil used by each city.
Exploring Power-Law Functions Using WISE Data
In this astronomy instructional activity students use data from the Wide Field Infrared Survey Experiment, to answer a series of 3 problems about the magnitude of stars. This instructional activity includes the answers. Students need to have an understanding of Algebra. This instructional activity can be printed.
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. They practice applying the terms parallel, perpendicular, slope and intersect. A recording sheet will give an added element of engagement for learners.
Algebra: Solve Multiplication and Division Equations - Practice 12.4
In this solving multiplication and division algebraic equations worksheet, students solve and state the inverse operations, write and solve equations to find missing parts of areas, write equations to show how the input is changed to the output on charts, and answer word problems. Students solve eighteen problems.
The Art Gallery Problem
Students calculate a problem involving distance and inverse trigonometric functions. Given a situation involving an a painting at an art gallery, students calculate the distance a student would need to stand in order to gain the best view of a painting.
Print and use this useful unit on basic algebraic functions, domain, range, and graphing. Tasks include, illustrating simple functions with a graph, and identifying the domain and range of the function. This twelve-page packet contains approximately 20 problems, thorough explanations, examples, and suggested learning activities.
Percent of a Number - Practice 19.5
Learners write the percent of 8 numbers as a ratio. They write 12 percentage problems as decimals and utilize algebra functions to solve 3 equations. Pupils answer two test prep questions involving percentages.
Divide by Two-Digit Divisors - Practice 2.4
In this two-digit divisors worksheet, 5th graders divide the equations using two-digit divisors. In the first set, students estimate the quotients and write the compatible numbers they used. In the second set, students divide using two digit divisors and check their answers using estimation or multiplication. In the third set, students use mental math to solve. Students then find each missing value of y in the algebra functions and complete two test prep division questions.
Regroup Ones and Tens
In this addition worksheet, students add upward 15 2 and 3-digit whole numbers problems. Students complete 3 tables utilizing Algebra functions and answer 2 test prep questions.
Young scholars study exponential decay and its application to radiocarbon dating. In this exponential decay lesson, students use candy to model the time it takes for something to decay. Young scholars also graph the data they collect and describe using an algebraic formula that gives the age of an object as a function.
Connection between even and odd numbers and functions
Are odd numbers connected to odd functions and even numbers to even functions? This video tries to clarify that connection. It also talks about functions that are neither odd nor even to give a more intuitive feeling about classifying these functions.
Domain of a Function
We look at a number of different examples of functions and see what their domain is. Sal writes the domain in set notion and shows how different functions can have different input values that cause the function to be undefined.
Functional Relationships 1
What does it mean for two things to have a functional relationship? In this video, Sal takes the example of a table of values that map a personÕs name to their height and discusses how this is a functional relationship. He also considers how the table could be changed so that the relationship is no longer a function.
New! Find the Missing Inputs for a Function Machine Using a Vertical Table
Given the rule and output values for a function machine, teach your class how to work backward to determine the inputs. The final video of this nine-part series uses tables to organize the inputs, outputs, and rule of a function, and then calculates missing input values using the inverse operation. Use this an an opportunity to reinforce understanding of multiplication and division fact families. A great resource for introducing your class to solving one-step algebraic equations.
Ex: Constructing a Function
This video explores a basic linear cost equation. Given a rate-per-photo and a fixed-one time cost, write a function that represents the amount a customer would pay for x number of photos.
Picture Frames and Algebra
Middle schoolers create a method for finding the area of a fame for a picture and then transfer their shared methods into algebraic expressions. They develop the algebraic language to communicate and solve problems effectively and use variables and symbols to write equations. Pupils use the computer to examine graphic representation of their equations.
