Secondary Mathematics I

Strand: ALGEBRA - Creating Equations (A.CED)

Create equations that describe numbers or relationships. Limit these to linear equations and inequalities, and exponential equations. In the case of exponential equations, limit to situations requiring evaluation of exponential functions at integer inputs (Standards A.CED.1-4).

Standard A.CED.3

Represent constraints by equations or inequalities, and by systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or non-viable options in a modeling context. For example, represent inequalities describing nutritional and cost constraints on combinations of different foods.

This collection of resources to teach graphing equations in slope intercept form includes warm-up exercises, a video presentation explaining the topic, practice exercises, worked examples, practice problems, and a review.
• Introduction to the Materials (Math 1)
Introduction to the Materials in the Mathematics One of the The MVP classroom experience begins by confronting students with an engaging task and then invites them to grapple with solving it. As students ideas emerge, take form, and are shared, the teacher orchestrates the student discussions and explorations towards a focused mathematical goal. As conjectures are made and explored, they evolve into mathematical concepts that the community of learners begins to embrace as effective strategies for analyzing and solving problems.
• Linear Equations in One Variable
