Finding linear functions from tables, equations and graphs challenges students to deepen their understanding of the slope and y-intercept of a line.
This mission aligns with the Common Core State Standards: HSA.CED.A.2, HSF.BF.A.1, 8.F.A.3, 8.F.A.4.
The fun stuff:
Genies perform magic on candy! But students won't be fooled by parlor tricks, they'll pull back the curtain and find the rules and relationships behind the tables, equations and graphs. A carefully guided mission which helps students understand slope-intercept form for a line. Also a nice introduction to the combination of playful modeling, carefully guided exploration and crafted practice which typifies Courage To Core missions!

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
