Below is a sample breakdown of the Linear Equations and Inequalities chapter into a 5-day school week. Based on the pace of your course, you may need to adapt the lesson plan to fit your needs.
|Day||Topics||Key Terms and Concepts Covered|
|Monday||Defining and Writing Linear Equations||Slope-intercept form of linear equations; instructions for writing linear equations|
|Tuesday||Linear Equations: Graphing, Intercepts and Standard Form||Forms of linear equations; use of the slope-intercept or standard form to graph a linear equation|
|Wednesday||Definition of Inequalities||Explanation and application of an inequality; explanation and graphing of 2-variable inequalities|
|Thursday||Solving Simultaneous or Systems of Linear Equations||Methods for solving linear equations; use of tables showing constraints and values and definition of a coefficient in relation to linear equations|
|Friday||Extrapolation and Interpolation with Line Graphs||Use of a line graph to extrapolate values; interpolation of data points|
1. What is a Linear Equation?
Most cars won't be able to run for more than 250,000 miles, so how much longer will your car live? Linear Equations are the most basic kind of algebraic function and can help you answer questions exactly like this. Learn about what they look like, how they come up in your life and why they are powerful tools.
2. How to Write a Linear Equation
Simply knowing how to take a linear equation and graph it is only half of the battle. You should also be able to come up with the equation if you're given the right information.
3. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing
Do you know what to do if an equation doesn't look like y=mx+b?! If not, then this video is for you. Chances are the equation is in standard form, so we'll learn how to use standard form equations, how to graph them and why they can be helpful.
4. What is an Inequality?
Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!
5. Solving Simultaneous Linear Equations
In this video lesson, you will learn how to solve simultaneous linear equations or a system of linear equations. Learn the steps you need to take to solve any such system using the Gaussian elimination method.
6. Extrapolation & Interpolation with Line Graphs
After watching this video lesson, you should be able to interpolate and extrapolate a line graph based on just a few points. You will be able to provide data points that haven't been given to you.
