Areas of emphasis
UNIT INFORMATION:
DESIGN ELEMENTS FOR UNIT:
Name of Unit: Linear Functions
Grade: 10^{th}
Subject: Advanced Algebra
CONTENT: Major Topics covered in unit:
A. ConstantIncrease or ConstantDecrease Situations
B. The Graph of y = mx + b
C. The Graph of Ax + By = C
D. Finding the Equation of a Line
E. Point Slope Formula
F. Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
UNIT OVERVIEW:
The first few days of this unit the students will be learning situations where
there are constant
changes . They will next learn how to graph y = mx + b and Ax + By = C linear
functions using slope
and y intercept . Once they learn how to graph the functions, they will learn how
to determine the
equations of a line given two points . They will end the unit by learning how to
determine the
relationship of parallel and perpendicular linear equations .
TARGETED STANDARDS:
Academic Expectations:
No. Text of Standard
1.51.9 Students use mathematical ideas and procedures to communicate, reason,
and solve
problems

MAH2.1.4 Students will describe properties of , define, give examples of, and
apply to both realworld
and mathematical situations ratio measures including slope and rate.
MAH2.1.2 Students will define, describe properties of, give examples of, and
apply to both realworld
and mathematical situations spatial relationships such as betweenness,
parallelism, and perpendicularity.
MAH4.2.2 Students will graph the equation of a line.
DESCRIPTION OF PERFORMANCE EVENT:
Students create a letter of the alphabet using only linear equations (excluding
some of the more
round letters, AEFHIKLMNTVWXYZ) by graphing this letter and providing the
equations of each of
the lines used to form the letter.
