<p>I put this together as a beginning of the 2nd semester activity for my Algebra 2 classes. I wanted the students to become familiar with graphing using the TI-Nspire calculators, work together in groups, review the function families they had studied and preview the functions that were coming up in the new semester.

I wanted the students to become familiar with graphing using the TI-Nspire calculators, work together in groups, review the function families they had studied and preview the functions that were coming up in the new semester. After they had time to work on the graphs I had each group draw a number and they were responsible for putting their paper under the document camera and presenting their findings. The biggest challenge was discussing the characteristics of the graphs. It was a good lesson and I was pleased with the results.</p> Shapes of Algebra graphing calculator activitiestag:a4a.learnport.org,2012-10-02:3795955:Topic:423182012-10-02T01:54:11.166ZClaudia Heinrichhttp://a4a.learnport.org/profile/ClaudiaHeinrich
<p>Here are two graphing calculator versions of the Algebra 4 All Shapes of Algebra project.</p>
<p>Rather than make posters I have the students work in groups and discover the graphs using the graphing calculator.</p>

<p>Here are two graphing calculator versions of the Algebra 4 All Shapes of Algebra project.</p>
<p>Rather than make posters I have the students work in groups and discover the graphs using the graphing calculator.</p>
<p>The goal for the 1st lesson is to become familiar with entering equations and seeing the graphs. I have the students work in groups of 4, each one entering one of the functions into their calculator. The are then to discuss what they see, make a sketch and summarize their findings. I have to model with them a sample problem, otherwise I have found that they work in parallell form, dividing the work and not having the important discussions.</p>
<p>After they have completed the shapes of Algebra exploration I have them work in groups of 3 with the same idea with the Shapes of Algebra #2, tables & graphs activity. Each member enters one of the graphs. This time I want them to learn how to use the table feature on the calculator, I do not have them plot the points to graph since I have found the activity to become too long and tedious for the students. The point is to focus on the shape associated with each family and look for connections in the tables.</p>
<p>After the Shapes of Algebra #2, tables and graphs, I have each group make a poster of one of the function families. I use the posters all year as we study each of the function families in more detail.</p>
<p>Every time I use the activities I make some changes in the questions. My goal is for the students to learn to work together, improve their math communication skills and to understand the big ideas.</p> Linear Functions 5 Day Plantag:a4a.learnport.org,2011-08-26:3795955:Topic:256622011-08-26T14:25:21.692ZCortney Kidonhttp://a4a.learnport.org/profile/CortneyKidon

<p>In each of six groups, students create a table, a graph, and an equation to represent an assigned job situation. All of the groups have the same monetary goals. Students then compare and discuss their results as a class.</p>

<p>This is a quick activity that I put together for my graphing quadratics unit.</p>
<p>The students were graphing quadratics in standard form using the -b/2a formula to locate the vertex.</p>
<p>Some of my students were having difficulty completing a table of values to find additional points after finding the vertex. Graphing the parent table of values from the shifted vertex really emphasized the function family translations.</p>

<p>Here is a quick introduction to exponential growth functions.</p>
<p>I used a roll of bounty paper towels because it has the small tear off sections.</p>
<p>It was quick, got the class engaged right away and provided a good discussion of exponential growth.</p>
<p>Another teacher liked the idea, but used wax paper instead of paper towel sections.</p>

<p>This is an introduction to the Shapes of Algebra that focuses on students working together and discussing the different function families. I have the students look at the graphs on their calculators, sketch the shapes and draw conclusions. This is a little less involved than the original shapes of algebra since I do not have the students make the posters. </p>
<p>A puzzle map is also attached. I adapted it from a pretest that is in another posting.</p>
