Overview: Pre-algebra or algebra students develop and exhibit their understanding of the relationship among the parts of the linear equation d=rt through multiple means–table, line graph, equation, computer simulation, computer model, and word problem.
Students will be able to explain the effects of setting varying rates within a computer simulation.
Students will be able to create a table, write an equation, and graph the equation d=rt.
Students will be able to identify the difference between constant and variable slope.
Students will be able to solve for any of the variables in the equation d=rt.
Read and analyze graphs to make valid predictions based on the data given.
Describe, represent and analyze patterns and relationships using tables, matrices, equations and graphs and describe the connections among those representations.
Distinguish between linear and non-linear functions, given graphic examples.
Generate an algebraic equation to model real-life situations given a data set.
Solve equations, functions, and inequalities.
Solve linear equations using models/ manipulatives, symbols, and/or graphing in one- step equations.
