Use the attached word document to guide your class exploration on linear equations and their graphs.
Before the Activity
Assign each student an x-value between -15 and 15. Students will plug in their x-value to find the y-coordinate of the graph for several curves.
During the Activity
Be sure to focus on student observations during this activity.
After the Activity
Review student results:
As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
Re-teach concepts as necessary
