Linear Functions-5 day plan for Algebra for AllCarrie Weberalgebra, 8th grade mathI was not able to attach all documents, it only allowed for 3 items. Missing is the Frayer model, which can easily be found online, and the TI-84 Scavenger Hunt which can be found on this network.Teaching in Michigan, I have included the MMC content expectations that will be introduced, although some not in their entirety:A2.1.3 Represent functions in symbols, graphs, tables, diagrams, or words and translate among representations. A2.1.7 Identify and interpret the key features of a function from its graph or its formula(e), (e.g., slope, intercept(s), asymptote(s), maximum and minimum value(s),symmetry, and average rate of change over an interval).A2.4.1 Write the symbolic forms of linear functions (standard [i.e., Ax + By = C, where B ≠ 0], point-slope, and slope-intercept) given appropriate information and convert between forms. A2.4.2 Graph lines (including those of the form x = h and y = k) given appropriate information. A2.4.3 Relate the coefficients in a linear function to the slope and x- and y-intercepts of its graph.See More

A few of us have taken the A4A course this summer. I know the course has been offered in a few different versions. Having gotten some technology with it would have been nice ;) but it has been nice to work through the class when I have more time-summer, not during the school year. I, personally, could have used some more training with graphing calculators, but I certainly know more than before I took the class.Although we have not had a chance to try any of the activities in class, we now have ideas to tryout for the whole year since we have them ahead of time. It is nice to have this spark ignited about how to approach teaching now, while I am starting to get geared up for another year. This course has made me realize that if I could try a few of the ideas and allow the students to explore and teach each other more, my students might enjoy more success in math and actually want to come to class. :)See More
