Plotting (x, y) Relationships
Delve into the relationship between x and y as it relates to graphing linear equations. Sal simplifies a trinomial expression, creates a function table, and then plots the coordinates on a graph. Because the relationship between the graph, coordinates, and equation is clearly described in this video, it would be great for extra support or independent study.

Peak Heart Rates
Healthy algebra students start their day studying peak heart rate posters that look very much like tables. Through some good questioning, collaborative groups work to read between the lines to find other age-peak heart rate relationships not printed on the posters.

Independent and Dependent Systems
When dealing with systems of linear equations one must understand their two-dimensional representation. Sal shows the difference between dependent, independent, consistent, and inconsistent equations. Next, he evaluates a system of linear equations to determine if they are dependent or not.

Do Two Points Always Determine a Linear Function?
Your learners can approach this task algebraically, geometrically, or both. They analyze the building of a linear function given two points and expand the concrete approach to the abstract when they are asked to find the general form of a linear equation using two points made up of only letters.

If you have two bags with an unknown number of tiles, represented by x, and you add three tiles to get seven total, you can set up a linear equation to represent the problem. Use this example and a few others to demonstrate how to solve such problems and fulfill a Common Core standard at the same time.

Scales of Equality
Using the proportional relationship between objects on a scale and the concepts of equity and equality, learners analyze, write, and balance algebra equations. Balanced scales help the learners explore the abstract concepts involved in solving algebra equations in a concrete and visual way.
