Tuesday May14 - Study Sheets for Investigation 2 Quiz

In Moving Straight Ahead, students will study some basic ideas of algebra and some ways to use those ideas to solve problems involving linear relationships and linear functions. In particular, they will be assessed on:
  • Recognize problem situations in which two variables have a linear relationship to each other;
  • Describe the patterns of change between the independent and dependent variables for linear relationships that are represented in tables, graphs or equations;
  • Construct tables, graphs, and symbolic equations that express linear relationships;
  • Translate information about linear relations given in a table, a graph, or an equation to one of the other forms.

Investigation 2 - Exploring linear functions

The goals for Investigation #2 are:

  • Find solutions to a problem using a table or graph
  • Understand the connections between linear equations and patterns in tables and graphs.
  • Translate information about linear relations into tables, graphs and equations.
  • Understand how the y-intercept appears in tables and equations.

May 1st - Investigation 1 - Moving Straight Ahead

Today we reviewed and completed an additional practice worksheet in class.

Goals for today:

  • Understand positive and negative rates of change and how they are represented in tables, graphs and equations.
  • Continue to explore y-intercepts.
  • Describe the information the variables and numbers in the equation represent.

Here is the Additional Practice and the answers to check your work.
