Lesson 10: Graphing Linear Equations

Polly and the Shapeshifter- A nice way of introducing "rate of change."
This is a lesson plan for a middle school classroom from an Algebra Cubed fellow, but I have used it in my high school classroom.

Lesson 11 1 Slope.doc- Finding slope of a line, quickly progresses from change in y and change in x to using formula to find slope. Two good exploration activities embedded in this lesson. Really good for follow-up discussion whole group. Allows them to show what they did in the exploration and then to show how they figured out what they knew/know.

Real World Example of a Linear Systems Problem- Cell Phone Plan ProblemThe purpose of this activity is to give teachers access to a problem based on real life data that allows students to opportunity to explore on their own to gather data or for the teacher to be able to present real-life data to students that realistically represents systems of equations.

It is not a finished example to be used in a class, but meant as a starting point for teachers to use after determining what their objectives are and who their population is.

The format of the presentation is such that teachers are exposed to the use of TI Connect and how the graphing calculator can be utilized in conjunction with a word processor (Word).

The graphics used in the problem were captured from a TI-84 using TI Connect, and inserted into a Microsoft Word file.

The only hardware needed (beyond a TI graphing calculator and a computer with word processing) is a TI- USB cable. These cables come standard with TI-84s, but have a cost connected with them for TI-83s.
