Course:
Algebra I
Unit:
1
Big Idea: Big Idea 4
Description:
Students will make connections between examples of verbal descriptions of the relationship between x and y and their corresponding graphs, using structural elements of linear relationships.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Algebra I
Unit:
2
Big Idea: Big Idea 1
Description:
Students will chunk descriptions of growth/decay in order to connect these chunks to the same chunks of their associated graphs.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Algebra I
Unit:
2
Big Idea: Big Idea 1
Description:
Use the structure of a set of graphs of parabolas and a set of quadratic equations to make connections related to the direction the graph opens and the y-intercept of the graph.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Algebra I
Unit:
