Common Core Learning Standard: 8.EE.7
Students will be able to determine if an expression is linear or non-linear by writing the expression as an equation, creating a table, and graphing the equation. If the points form a line, it is linear. If the points do not form a line, it is non-linear.
Students will look for similarities and differences between the expressions (or equations) to determine how to determine whether it is linear or non-linear without needing to create a table or graph.
The last page is practice without needing to create a table and graph.
