Ch 4: Absolute Value Equations: Homeschool Curriculum

About This Chapter

The Absolute Value Equations unit of this High School Trigonometry Homeschool Curriculum course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about absolute value equations. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Trigonometry Homeschool Curriculum course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about absolute value equations. There is no faster or easier way to learn about absolute value equations. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about evaluating, graphing and solving absolute value equations.
  • Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
  • Homeschool parents who need a math curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
  • Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

  • Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
  • Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
  • Short quizzes and an Absolute Value Equations unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Absolute Value Equations Unit Objectives:

  • Understand the definition of an absolute value equation.
  • Learn to evaluate an absolute value equation.
  • Calculate an absolute value equation.
  • Identify the parts of an absolute value graph.
  • Understand absolute value graphs with dilations or reflections.

What is an Absolute Value?

1. What is an Absolute Value?

When we're talking and comparing numbers, we often don't care whether its positive or negative, just how big it is. This is often called the magnitude of a number and we find it by taking the absolute value. Learn all about it here!

How to Evaluate Absolute Value Expressions

2. How to Evaluate Absolute Value Expressions

Substituting values into absolute values doesn't have to be too hard, but it can be if you're given deceiving beginning information. See if you're up to it by checking out this video!

How to Solve an Absolute Value Equation

3. How to Solve an Absolute Value Equation

Once you get familiar with any new operation, the next step in any algebra class is to learn how to solve equations with that operation in them. Absolute values are no different. Solve absolute value equations here!

Solving Absolute Value Practice Problems

4. Solving Absolute Value Practice Problems

There are many easy mistakes to make when solving absolute value equations. Learn how to avoid those mistakes here by working on examples of absolute value equations with operations on the inside and the outside of the absolute value.

How to Graph an Absolute Value and Do Transformations

5. How to Graph an Absolute Value and Do Transformations

Absolute value graphs normally look like the letter 'V', but transformations can change that 'V' in a number of different ways. As well as teaching you how to graph absolute values, this video will focus on a specific group of transformations called translations. Learn all about what that means here!

Graphing Absolute Value Equations: Dilations & Reflections

6. Graphing Absolute Value Equations: Dilations & Reflections

Although a basic absolute value graph isn't complicated, transformations can make them sufficiently confusing! In this lesson, you'll practice different transformations of absolute value graphs.
