June 2

Plan for the day:

warmup:  Factoring Friday!

  • review of equation types and finding equations of lines
  • horizontal and vertical lines

By the end of class you will be able to:

  • graph a line quickly based on the form that the equation comes in
  • convert between different forms of the equation using algebra

Complete: lesson  5 and 6 – Week 16 blog post!

Due:  Letter graph blog post



June 1

Plan for the day:

  • skills check– finding equations of lines
  • graphing assignment– (create your initials on a desmos grid using a minimum of 6 lines (no lines parallel) and determine the equation with the domain for each.)  Type the equation list with domains into desmos to check.  A photo of your original sheet and a screen clip of the online graph will be posted on your blog.

By the end of class you will be able to:

  • identify the different equation forms for linear equations
  • determine the equation of a line given two clues
  • determine which formula is best to use

Complete: Graphing assignment (post on blog, a picture of your original picture, the work used to determine the equations, and a screen clip of the desmos picture)  Tag:  Letter graph 2017




Initials Graphing Project

Part one:

Create your initials using dots on a grid.  Write them in a table of values in the order they should be connected (this can be on a paper or using desmos).  You should have lines with all different slopes (include one that has a slope of zero, and one that is undefined).  One table for each letter.  The letters will be a bit “wonky”.

Post a picture of your tables AND your initials on the grid.
Title: “Graphing Letters”
Tag: Letter Graph 2017

Part two:

With a blank desmos grid, enter your points (if you didn’t use desmos originally) and leave as just dots on the gird.

On a new line, determine the equation for each line and then include the domain (or range) to get just the section needed to connect the points.

Write equations for EACH line segment.  You can choose to write the equation in general form, slope-y intercept form OR  point-slope form.

Post a copy of your equations from desmos (screen clip) or embed your graph and a link to it (only will work if you have created an account and saved the graph), otherwise just screen clip and paste in.

May 31

Plan for the day:

Warmup: General form of equation

Lesson:  Point slope form of equation

Graphing project – part 1

By the end of class you will be able to:

  • determine the equation of a line in point-slope form
  • read off the two clues contained in a point-slope equation
  • rearrange a point slope form of the equation into slope-y-intercept form and/or general form
  • graph a line quickly using the point-slope form of a linear equation

Complete: Chapter 9 Lesson 4 (Pg 582) , part 1 of graphing project (posted)                    OVERDUE – week 15 blog post




May 30

Plan for the day:

Warmup: (partners)

Lesson:  General Form of the equation, point slope form of the equation

Check your understanding

By the end of class you should be able to:

  • know what an equation looks like when in general form
  • use algebraic rules  to rearrange equations into general form
  • rearrange equations in general form into slope y-intercept form

 Complete:  Chapter 9 Lesson 3 (Pg 573),  start thinking out Blog post WEEK 16

Final exam review:  flashback 2 questions

Extra practice – slope y-intercept
