Ch 6: Linear Models: Homeschool Curriculum

About This Chapter

The Linear Models unit of this High School Precalculus Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about working with linear and quadratic models in math. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This Linear Models unit of our High School Precalculus Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about working with linear and quadratic models in math. There is no faster or easier way to learn about linear models. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn how to analyze and write algebraic expressions and linear models or apply quadratic models or systems of linear equations to mathematical problems.
  • Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
  • Homeschool parents who need a mathematics 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 the Linear Models unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Linear Models Unit Objectives:

  • Analyze and write algebraic expressions for 2-D geometric figures.
  • Evaluate and write real-life linear models.
  • Find minimum and maximum values by using quadratic models.
  • Apply linear equation systems to breakeven point or market equilibrium problems.
