Linear Pictures in the Activity Center

Published on 02/17/2006

Activity Overview

Students will use their knowledge of linear functions to match real world linear situations. Students will be asked to match equations to linear pictures that are imposed in a coordinate plane.

Before the Activity

Students should have knowledge of how to write linear functions given a graph.

During the Activity

Load the activities settings one at a time in the Activity Center of the TI-Navigator™. Start the activity and have students send in equations to match the linear pictures.
In the first two (Library window and LHS entrance) you may want to split the class in half and ask each half to do one side of the roof. In the last one (LHS star) you may want to split the class into 5 groups and have each group do one line on the star.

After the Activity

Review student results:

  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
