4 Unit 4 Instructor Notes Unit 4: Analyzing and Graphing Linear Equations, Functions, and Relations Instructor Notes The Mathematics of Analyzing and Graphing Linear Equations, Functions, and Relations This unit introduces students to different representations of linear functions: verbal descriptions graphs tables equations (slope-intercept, standard, and point-slope forms) Students will learn key aspects of linear relationships and how to recognize them within the different representations. For example, they ll see that slope may be expressed as a rate within a word problem, a coefficient in a linear equation, the steepness of a line on a graph, and as the constant rate of change of a variable in a table. Students will also learn how to use linear equations to identify and create parallel and perpendicular lines. After completing the unit, students will be comfortable moving between word problems, graphs, tables, and equations, and be able to identify the components of linear equations and functions. Teaching Tips: Conceptual Challenges and Approaches There are several aspects of linear functions that often trip up students. Some of these challenges are conceptual and others are algorithmic. Each type of challenge requires a different approach. Given the large number of variables and formulas associated with linear functions, it is very easy for students to lose track of what the equations represent and which components of a line they must manipulate to solve problems. It is essential that students have plenty of opportunities to examine and create graphs. Hands-on Opportunities The text of this unit includes 3 manipulatives that enable students to play with features such as slope and intercept and see the effect of changing coefficients on the graph and equation of a line. These are: "#"!!

5 Graphing Equations in Slope Intercept Form (Lesson 1, Topic 3) This manipulative lets students adjust both the slope and y-intercept of a line. This will help students understand how the size and sign of coefficients determine the direction and location of a line. Parallel Lines (Lesson 2, Topic 1) This manipulative allows students to swivel and slide a line and compare it's slope and y-intercept to a second, fixed line. This will help them learn to recognize parallel lines. Perpendicular Lines (Lesson 2, Topic 2) This manipulative allows students to swivel and slide a line and compare it's slope and y-intercept to a second, fixed line. This will help them learn to recognize perpendicular lines. As students create graphs and work with the manipulatives, teachers must ask questions to nudge them into understanding and exploring the variables that define a line. Students who spend time discussing the relationships between linear equations and graphs are more likely to make the connections between these representations. Examples Ask students to predict the effects of large and small, positive and negative values for the coefficient of x in a linear equation. For example, have them compare the graphs of y = 10x + 5, y = -10x + 5, and y = 0.1x + 5. Have students explain how the steepness of a graph can be anticipated from looking at its equation. Ask students why lines that look perpendicular or parallel on paper need to have their equations compared in order to be truly identified. Teaching Tips: Algorithmic Challenges and Approaches Students also encounter procedural challenges with this material, due to the complexity of some of the algorithms needed to solve and graph linear functions. For example, finding the standard form equation of a line passing through two points is an involved process. It requires three critical steps, namely finding the slope of the line between the points, using this slope and one of the points to create the point slope form of a linear equation, and converting the point slope equation into standard form. "#'!!

6 Faced with a multi-step procedure like this, many students will get stuck in the mathematics of one of these steps, or lose track of the overall goal of the procedure and be unable to follow all the steps in the right order. Such confusion is common, and the traditional approach is to break problems like this into individual steps (chunking) and make sure students get lots of practice solving each one. Chunking is very useful and should be pursued, but chunking alone isn't enough. Along with the repeated practice of the small steps it is also critical that students learn the meanings of linear equations and coefficients, to make it easier for them to put the steps back together. For example, most students can memorize the slope formula,, but if they have no idea why this formula actually produces a value for slope, they're likely to forget it just as easily. Students will do better if they can see how the formula actually works. This is best achieved by frequent reference to visuals like this, from the text of Lesson 1 Topic 1: By drawing a right triangle under (or above) a line and explaining the mathematical meaning of each leg, you help students grasp why slope is the ratio of the differences between the x and y coordinates of two points. Encourage students to do this on their own graphs if they are having trouble calculating a slope. To help students move between the different forms of linear equations, use real-life situations in which the variables included in one formula make it more useful in that context than other equations. Guide students through the process of identifying which characteristics of a line they know and which they want to find out, and then choosing the form of linear equation that uses those terms. "#(!!

7 Example In the text of Lesson 2 Topic 4, students are shown how to pick the best equation to solve a problem:! Andre wants to buy an MP3 player. He got \$50 for his birthday, but the player he wants costs \$230, so he s going to have to save up the rest. His plan is to save \$30 a month until he has the money he needs. We ll help him out by writing an equation to analyze this situation. This will help us to figure out when he will have saved up enough to buy the MP3 player. When we write the equation, we ll let x be the time in months, and y be the amount of money saved. After 1 month, Andre has \$80. That means when x = 1, y = 80. So we know the line passes through the point (1, 80). Also, we know that Andre hopes to save \$30 per month. This means the rate of change, or slope, is 30. We have a point and we have a slope that s all we need to write a point slope formula, so that s the form of linear equation we ll use. Summary This unit covers a lot of ground: students must learn to recognize, describe, create, and compare varied and often complex representations of linear functions. They can be made more successful and less intimidated through the use of manipulatives, chunking, visual cues, and practice to teach them not just the procedures but also the meaning of linear equations and graphs.

9 Unit 4 Puzzle Unit 4: Analyze and Graph Linear Equations, Functions and Relations Instructor Overview Puzzle: Bermuda Triangles Objective The Bermuda Triangles hidden object puzzle helps students understand the meaning of slope in both numerical and visual form. As students work to match up slopes and lines, they must apply concepts such as rate of change, steepness, and rise over run. Figure 1. Bermuda Triangles hides objects with a given slope in plain sight for the learner to identify. Description Three tropical scenes are sprinkled with triangles created by the shapes and arrangements of organisms and objects. Players are given the value of a slope and search the scenes to find a matching line. If they chose correctly, they move on. If they click on a triangle that does not match, a graph of the given slope appears as a guide. If they need further help, a hint button displays a circle that narrows the search area. Players gain points by finding the right slope and lose points for mistaken identifications. The puzzle is suitable for solo play, but group play could spark useful conversations about the relationship between slope and steepness. "#+!!
