Algebra 1

Linear Functions

Linear equations in two variables are often treated as linear functions. The lessons in this unit develop the concept of the slope of a line, relate slope to rate of change, and explore the relationship among tables, graphs and symbolic representations of a line. The activities include contextual applications of linear functions.
