Lesson 10

Relating Linear Equations and their Graphs

These materials, when encountered before Algebra 1, Unit 6, Lesson 10 support success in that lesson.

Lesson Narrative

In the associated Algebra 1 lesson, the focus is on relating features of expressions that define quadratic functions with features of graphs. This is accomplished by looking for and making use of structure. In this lesson, students are prompted to related features of expressions that define functions with features of graphs, but in the context of linear functions. The activities also encourage looking for and making use of structure (MP7).

Learning Goals

Teacher Facing

  • Look for structure in equations and connect them to properties of graphs.

Student Facing
