Description

Get a complete, ready-to-print unit covering topics from the Algebra 1 TEKS including writing linear equations in slope-intercept form, point-slope form, and standard form; writing and solving equations involving direct variation; and formulating linear models using linear regression.


UNIT OVERVIEW:

Students will continue their study of linear functions, graphs, and equations while focusing on writing 2-variable linear equations.

Students will begin by drawing on prior knowledge to write and solve mathematical and applied problems involving direct variation, including representing the relationship using tables and graphs.

Students will then learn how to formulate 2-variable linear equations in slope-intercept form, point-slope form, and standard form given information in a variety of ways.

Finally, students will be introduced to using technology to perform linear regression to formulate linear models that represent data from applied situations. They will calculate and analyze r, the correlation coefficient, to determine the strength of the linear association of the data. Students will also determine if associations show causation.

These no-prep resources include 6 lessons with guided notes, an exit ticket, a next-day warm-up, and 2 extra practice assignments per lesson.  The unit also includes mid-unit and end-of-unit reviews, mid-unit and end-of-unit editable assessments, and concept organizers. Increase student engagement with 5 TEKS-aligned activities!

_______________________________________

TEACHERS LOVE the worked-out keys included with the lessons notes. Feel confident delivering instruction on these sometimes tricky topics! It is a major time-saver if you don’t have quite enough time to create your own guided notes key for the day.

STUDENTS LOVE the reduced note-taking burden with the guided notes handouts. Fill-in-the-blank vocabulary improves the accuracy of students’ notes and frees up more time for showing mathematical steps. 

TEACHERS LOVE the multiple versions of each practice worksheet, review, and assessment and they take full advantage of the EDITABLE versions of the mid-unit assessment form and unit test.

STUDENTS LOVE the complementary concept organizers that help them organize concepts and procedures.  

TEACHERS LOVE the pre-made exit tickets and next-day warm-ups that support skills from every lesson in the unit. Print 4-per-page or project on the board and record answers on scratch paper!

STUDENTS LOVE the variety of fun and engaging activities!

UNIT 4 INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING LESSONS:

Lesson 1: Direct Variation

Students will:

  • write and solve equations involving direct variation
  • distinguish between proportional and non-proportional linear relationships
  • represent direct variation equations and proportional linear relationships in multiple ways
  • write the domain and range of proportional linear relationships in applied situations

Lesson 2: Writing Linear Equations I (Slope-Intercept Form)

Students will:

  • formulate 2-variable linear equations in slope-intercept form given a graph, verbal description, table, two points, or the slope and the y-intercept

Lesson 3: Writing Linear Equations II (Point-Slope Form)

Students will:

  • formulate 2-variable linear equations in point-slope form given a graph, verbal description, table, two points, or the slope and a point on the line
  • rewrite point-slope form equation as slope-intercept form equations

Lesson 4: Writing Linear Equations III (Standard Form)

Students will:

  • formulate 2-variable linear equations in standard form given a graph, verbal description, table, two points, or the slope and a point on the line
  • rewrite point-slope form equations and slope-intercept form equations as standard form equations

Lesson 5: Equations of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Students will:

  • write the equations of horizontal and vertical lines graphed on the coordinate plane and state the slope of the lines (zero or undefined)
  • write the equation of a line that passes through a given point and is parallel to a given line using the point-slope formula
  • write the equation of a line that passes through a given point and is perpendicular to a given line using the point-slope formula

Lesson 6: Writing Equations Using Linear Regression

Students will:

  • calculate linear models for sets of data by performing linear regression using technology and by using algebraic methods
  • calculate r, the correlation coefficient, and use it to interpret the strength of the data’s linear association
  • determine whether associations represent causation

EACH LESSON CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING ELEMENTS:

  • The Lesson Notes are designed for use as a note-taking guide combined with guided practice.
  • Practice A and Practice B are suitable for use as in-class practice and homework. Two comparable forms are included for increased versatility.
  • The Exit Ticket is designed for a quick concept check at the end of the class period.
  • The Warm-Up is designed for next-day use to reinforce the previous day’s learning.
  • One-page display versions of the exit ticket and warm-up are included. Display the PDF page on a screen for student viewing and have students record their responses on notebook paper or scratch paper to save on printing.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE IN UNIT 4 INCLUDE:

  • 3 Concept Organizers offer complimentary alternatives for note-taking or post-lesson concept reinforcement.
  • The Mid-Unit Review (Forms A and B) provides an opportunity for students to practice the concepts they learned in the first part of the unit.
  • The Mid-Unit Assessment (Forms A and B) may be used as a test, quiz, or daily assignment to meet the specific needs of your students. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.
  • The Unit Review (Forms A and B) helps students focus on the key concepts studied throughout the unit.
  • The Unit Test (Forms A, B, and C) comes in two comparable multiple-choice forms (A and B) and one free-response form (C). The test key includes TEKS alignment for each question to facilitate easy data analysis. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.

Supports Algebra 1 Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

Standards: A.2A, A.2B, A.2C, A.2D, A.2E, A.2F, A.2G, A.4A, A.4B, A.4C (also spirals A.3A, A.3B, and A.3C)

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 1 TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills TAC §111.39). 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 judgment and experience when lesson planning.
