 Linear Equations

Notations for Expressing Solutions (roster, set notation, interval notation)
*
Solving Equations Algebraically (multi-step, parentheses, variables both sides, decimals)
Literal Equations (solve for a specific variable)
Truth Value of Equations (always true, true under certain conditions, always false)
*
Equations of Straight Lines (slope-intercept, point-slope, standard forms; horizontal, vertical)
*
Graphing Linear Equations (intercept approach)
Constraints on Equations (limitations placed on a graph)
Types of Word Problems (number, %, age, distance, consecutive integer, \$, mixture)
*
Graphs with Linear "Parts" (piecewise linear, absolute value, step, and story functions)

 PRACTICE: • Solving Linear Equations Practice (multi-steps) • Justifying Solutions Practice (giving reasons) • Literal Equations Practice • Truth Value of Equations Practice • Equations of Straight Lines Practice • Graphs of Linear Equations Practice • Constraints on Linear Equations Practice • Graphs with Linear "Parts" Practice (piecewise linear) • Applications of Linear Equations Practice (a variety of word problems) • Mixture Problems • Game (still in development)

 REFRESHERS: (review old skills) * • Solving One-Step Linear Equations (one-step: add/subtract or mult/divide) • Slope and Rate of Change (slope; independent / dependent variables) • Hitting the Slopes (with Oscar - positive, negative, zero, undefined slopes) • Graphing Linear Equations Refresher (table/chart; slope-intercept) • Practice with Basic Linear Equations • Practice with Graphing Linear Equations
