Product is in both pdf and MS Word formats.
This product has three worksheets about real-life linear functions to be completed with interactive lecturing .
The worksheets are written around the theme of candy in which the idea is to buy two types of candy for a certain amount of money without getting change back.
The students complete a table showing how much of each type of candy can be purchased. The data in the table is later graphed, and there are questions about rate (slope) and a linear equation is developed in the third worksheet.
This series of worksheets was developed to give my Algebra students a real-life meaning to linear functions.
