This is one in my series of lessons using the graphing calculator for Algebra Classes. This one is for any Algebra level. Students use the graphing calculator to graph and explore the solutions to absolute value equations. This is a great way to show the students a visual representation of the equation and to drive home the idea that there are two answers for the equation. Students can do the work in groups or individually. It can be used as a discovery lesson or a review. NO answer key - I usually go over the worksheet with them using a projection unit so they can see the graph and we can discuss their results.
Also note: I give the window for the TI calculator that will give the best results when tracing.
