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.

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.

US Airports, Assessment Variation
Determining relationships is all part of algebra and functions. Your mathematicians will decide the type of relationship between airports and population and translate what the slope and y-intercept represent. The problem is multiple choice and provides several answer selections for them to chose from as well as one fill in the blank.

Transformation of Functions Exploration
Functions are on the move! This lesson plan provides an opportunity for learners to explore transformations of functions. The activity illustrates the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) + k, kf(x), f(kx), and f(x + k) for both positive and negative values of k.

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.

Telling a Story With Graphs
Turn your algebra learners into meteorologists. Students are given three graphs that contain information about the weather in Santa Rosa, California during the month of February, 2012. Graph one shows temperatures, graph two displays the solar radiation, and graph three indicates the amount of rainfall.

Six Linear Function Performance Assessments
Mathematicians study how algebra can tell the stories of linear growth and they develop problem solving skills in relation to linear growth contexts. In this lesson plan, young scholars organize information to explain growth, they use algebraic equations to make connections between real life and linear change.

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.

Equal Differences Over Equal Intervals 2
Your algebra learners explore linear functions concretely using tables of values in a collaborative task. The idea that linear function values change by equal differences over equal intervals, is emphasized. The slope and y-intercept become evident in the patterns developed in the tables and in the equations.

Distance across the channel
Here you will find a model of a linear relationship between two quantities, the water depth of a channel and the distance across the channel at water level. The cross section of the channel is the shape of an isosceles trapezoid. The function is as the distance across the channel (d) increases the water depth (y) increase.
