Get a complete, ready-to-print unit covering topics from the Algebra 1 TEKS including slope and rate of change of linear functions, graphing linear functions, and identifying the effects of transforming the graph of the linear function y=x.


Students will formalize their understanding of linear functions by extending their knowledge of calculating slope and rate of change as well as graphing lines from 8th-grade math.

Students will calculate the slope of lines and rate of change of linear functions from multiple representations, including mathematical and applied situations. They will use this skill to graph linear functions on coordinate planes. Students will interpret the meaning of slope, intercepts, and zeros within an applied context.

Finally, students will be introduced to function transformations, which will serve as the foundation for in-depth study of function transformations throughout Algebra 1 and Algebra 2.

These no-prep resources include 7 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!  


Most resources are in non-editable PDF format.

  • Editable versions of the mid-unit assessment and test are also included in .docx format for MS Word.
  • 5 digital activities compatible with Google Slides and Google Classroom™ are included.
  • Printable versions of the digital activities are included in PDF format.

You need a free Google account to access the digital activities, add the digital activities to your Google Drive™, or assign the digital activities using Google Classroom.


Lesson 1: Slope from Tables, Graphs, and Points

Students will:

  • determine the slope of lines and calculate the rate of change of linear functions from tables, graphs, and coordinate points (including applied situations)

Lesson 2: Slope from Equations of Lines

Students will:

  • determine the slope of lines and calculate the rate of change of linear functions from equations (including applied situations)

Lesson 3: Attributes of Linear Functions

Students will:

  • identify intercepts, zeros, and slope from equations of linear functions
  • graph linear functions given two points or a point and the slope
  • interpret the meaning of key attributes from applied situations

Lesson 4: Graphing Linear Functions from Equations

Students will:

  • graph linear functions given equations written in multiple forms
  • identify intercepts, zeros, and slope from equations of linear functions
  • interpret the meaning of key attributes from applied situations

Lesson 5: Linear Function Transformations I (Translations)

Students will:

  • describe the effects of translating the linear parent function y = x vertically and horizontally
  • shift y = x up, down, left, and right
  • graph the transformed function
  • formulate the equation of the resulting function

Lesson 6: Linear Function Transformations II (Stretch, Compression, and Reflection)

Students will:

  • describe the effects of vertically stretching and compressing the linear parent function y = x
  • describe the effects of horizontally stretching and compressing the linear parent function y = x
  • describe the effects of reflecting the linear parent function y = x about the x-axis and y-axis
  • graph the transformed function

Lesson 7: Linear Function Transformations III (Composite)

Students will:

  • describe the effects on the slope and y-intercept of transforming the linear parent function y = x
  • graph the transformed function
  • perform and recognize composite transformations of the linear parent function including stretch and compression, reflection, and vertical and horizontal translation


  • 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.


  • 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.



Printable versions of each activity are also included in PDF form.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Well written and scaffolded.  Digital activities are meaningful and not hastily put together like some others I have seen.  The notes are well thought out and explained.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “These units are wonderful!  After moving from the 8th grade classroom to teaching Algebra 1, these units provided me a great place to start.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I absolutely love Math Beach Solutions. It is more rigorous than the state standardized test so gives students all the skills they need to be successful on both the EOC and in future high school math classes. Allison is extremely helpful and her work is beautiful and well organized!”


Supports Algebra 1 Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

Standards: A.2A, A.3A, A.3B, A.3C, A.3E

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.
