Intersections II

This Intersections II assessment also includes:

How many intersections can two absolute value functions have? Young scholars consider the question and then develop a set of rules that describe the number of solutions a given system will have. Using the parent function and the standard form of the function, their patterns give a range of values of the a, b, and c values that result in each type of solution.
