Unit 3 - Absolute Value Functions and More Piecewise Functions(9 Lessons)

Exploring Distance Functions

12th Grade Math

» Unit:

Absolute Value Functions and More Piecewise Functions

Big Idea:Instead of memorizing the definition of absolute value, students work with the concept of distance and the number line to develop transformed absolute value functions.

Further Exploration of Distance Functions

12th Grade Math

» Unit:

Absolute Value Functions and More Piecewise Functions

Big Idea:Are there function rules to fit these relationships? Students apply prior knowledge to a new problem and find functions to fit their data. The optional use of technology allows them to check models on their own.
