Linear and Exponential Change: Comparing Growth Rates
This thirteen-page PowerPoint presentation guides geometry learners in interpreting linear functions, linear data and their trend lines, the consequences of their constant rate of change, and growth rate. Real-life models including step-by-step solutions, graphs, and functions are used to compare the characteristics of linear and non-linear functions, especially exponential verses linear.

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.

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.

Equal Differences Over Equal Intervals 1
Learners explore linear functions concretely using tables of values in a cooperative task. The concept of the values of linear functions changing by equal differences over equal intervals of one is emphasized. Learners will discover the slope and y-intercept in the equations and in the patterns developed in the tables.

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.

Mystery Liquids: Linear Function
High schoolers determine the linear equations of the density of water and oil by collecting data on the mass of various volumes of each liquid. They construct scatter plots from the data and use these to write the linear equations for both liquids.

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.

Introduction to Exponential Functions
This instructional activity begins with a review of linear functions and segues nicely over its fifteen examples and problems into a deep study of exponential functions. Linear and exponential growth are compared in an investment task. Data tables are used to explore and practice the idea of common ratios to recognize exponential functions.

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.
