Learners will explore linear functions. They start by comparing linear functions representing two trains racing toward each other. Next, they solve related word problems and complete corresponding data tables, graphs, and worksheets....
Graphs and Functions
Middle schoolers describe plotting functions on the Cartesian coordinate plane. They solve functions on paper and using an online tool to plot points on a Cartesian coordinate plane creating lines and parabolas.
Basic Function Shapes
Learners identify function shapes. In this shapes lesson students determine the basic function shapes. They match the basic function shapes to specific situations.
Identify and Graph Linear Equations
Students investigate linear functions. In this mathematics instructional activity, students plot points onto a graph by solving the equations y=x and y=mx+b by being given numbers for x and solving for y.
Graphing Linear Functions Two
Use this graphing linear functions worksheet to have learners graph three linear equations. They use a table of values, the intercept method, and slope-intercept form to graph three functions.
Graphing Linear Functions
In this linear functions instructional activity, learners graph 3 linear functions. Students graph each function by making a table of values given a linear function in standard form.
In this direct variation worksheet, students answer 4 multiple choice questions that involve identifying a direct and constant variation and writing the direct variation equation.
