The Absolute Value Functions Unit + Activities Bundle
includes notes, practice, reviews, assessments, PLUS activities.
Documents are in PDF format. Editable versions of all forms of the mid-unit assessment and test are also included in DOCX (MS Word) format.
The Absolute Value Functions Unit (Unit 2)
covers transforming absolute value functions and solving absolute value equations and inequalities.
This unit emphasizes mastering absolute value function transformations
and provides a strong foundation for function transformations in subsequent units.
Students will extend their knowledge of function transformations by transforming the absolute value function f(x)=|x|. Students will have opportunities to make connections between transformations of the absolute value parent function to their prior learning about linear and quadratic function transformations. Students will identify and describe the effects of transforming f(x)=|x| in addition to formulating absolute value equations to represent transformed functions.
Solving absolute value linear equations and inequalities
strengthens students’ linear equation solving skills without the need for a linear equation review unit.
Students will solve absolute value linear equations and inequalities. With an initial emphasis on solving algebraically, flexible resources allow teachers to introduce solving graphically as desired on their timeline.
Two forms (A/B) are included for added versatility in your classroom. In-context keys are included for easy grading. Plus plenty of opportunities for students to engage with the process standards.

Primary Standards Addressed
2A.6C, 2A.6D, 2A.6E, 2A.6F from Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
A note from Allison at Math Beach Solutions about standards alignment: This resource was designed from the ground up to provide ready-made resources for Texas teachers to implement to facilitate their students’ mastery of the Algebra 2 TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills TAC §111.40). A considerable effort has been made to ensure the TEKS are addressed thoroughly, but these resources will reflect my understanding of the TEKS. As always, continue to use your professional judgement and experience when lesson planning.
