The Algebra 1 course, often taught in the 9th grade, covers Linear equations, inequalities, functions, and graphs, Systems of equations and inequalities, and more.
This lesson focuses on having students make connections among different classes of polynomial functions by exploring the graphs of the functions.
In this lesson, students examine the problem of space pollution caused by human-made debris in orbit to develop an understanding of functions and modeling.
Students use graphs, tables, number lines, verbal descriptions, and symbols to represent the domain of various functions.
Investigate what happens to the equations of different lines when you reflect them in one of the axes. Try to predict what will happen. Explain your findings.
