<p><b>Objective:</b> Students will use problem solving skills to find area and compare price options to tile a floor.</p>
<p><b>Standards:</b> N-Q.1: Use units as a way to understand problems and to guide the solution of multi-step problems; choose and interpret units consistently in formulas.</p>
<p> N-Q.2: Define appropriate quantities for the purpose of descriptive modeling.</p>
<p> N-Q.3: Choose a level of accuracy appropriate to limitations on measurement when reporting quantities.</p>

<p><span>Hey everyone,</span></p>
<p><span> </span></p>
<p><span>I'm looking for some feedback about a textbook series "Big Idea Math - Algebra 1" authors Ron Larson and Laurie Boswell. Our district is contemplating buying it and I must say it looks promising... but it is so new that I haven’t seen a review of the series that is either positive or negative. </span></p>

<p><span> </span></p>
<p><span>If you have any knowledge of this series at all, please share your input. Who has taught through this series? Have you had a son or daughter who took the class? What do you think? Obviously, a new textbook series is a big commitment for any district, but especially so when $ is tight. So any and all input is welcome/appreciated :)</span></p>

<p>This Lesson involves students matching symbolic rules to tables and graphs. The family of functions we are focusing on are Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential. </p>
<p>Once they have this sorting activity complete there will be large group discussions about their conclusions.</p>
<p>Included are 3 connector activities, 3 additional activities, and 1 assessment.</p>

<p>This lesson is a review of writing linear equations for a real-world situation, setting them up as a system of equations and solving. The scenario is based on supply and demand and their equilibrium. This lesson was designed to be used in Algebra 2 as a beginning of the year review of algebra 1 skills in writing equations from a graph and a table, converting from one form of linear equation to another, and solving a system of linear equations. There is an extension for including quadratic systems and could be easily adapted to Algebra 1. Links to the lesson, short video, and lesson print outs are included.</p>
