Algebra I Module 1, Topic A, Overview

Class in Lecture Hall

In Topic A, students explore the main functions that they will work with in Grade 9:  linear, quadratic, and exponential.  The goal is to introduce students to these functions by having them make graphs of situations (usually based upon time) in which the functions naturally arise (A-CED.2).  As they graph, they reason abstractly and quantitatively as they choose and interpret units to solve problems related to the graphs they create (N-Q.1, N-Q.2, N-Q.3).
