This lesson is the fourth of nine lessons in the Math 1 Linear Functions Unit.
In this lesson, the students will learn how to:
~determine if a function is linear or non-linear,
~calculate the slope of a linear function,
~calculate the average rate of change of a non-linear function.
The download for this lesson includes guided notes (with examples and class work problems), an answer key to the guided notes, and a SMART Notebook presentation that corresponds with the guided notes that includes a “Ticket Out the Door”.
