#### 1. Patchwork Tile Patterns

Big Idea: What happens to the patchwork pieces needed to create these designs as the size of the designs increases? Students jump right into problem-solving with the Practice standards on their first day!

#### 2. Investigating Linear and Nonlinear Tile Patterns

Big Idea: How many tiles will be in the 100th figure? Students develop their own shortcuts to find explicit rules for linear and nonlinear tile patterns.

#### 3. More Tile Patterns

Big Idea: Let's look at number patterns and geometric structure. Some students will look at number sequences to generate rules while others dig into the geometric structures. Great opportunity to explore equivalent expressions!

#### 4. Constant Speeds and Linear Functions

Big Idea: Is this person traveling at a constant speed? How can you tell? Students use intuition and background knowledge about speed to analyze data tables and find linear patterns.

#### 5. Linear and Nonlinear Functions

Big Idea: What is going on in this table? In this highly-differentiated lesson, some students focus deeply on linear functions while others start to look at more complicated nonlinear functions.

#### 6. Real World Relationships

Big Idea: As the temperature increases on a sunny day, what happens to the number of people on a beach? Students analyze and discuss graphs in pairs to develop ideas about what makes a relationship linear.

#### 7. Sketching Graphs for Real-World Situations

Big Idea: What will happen to the length of an object's shadow throughout the day? Students discuss this and other questions and attempt to represent these relationships using graph sketches.
Standards:
Favorites (2)   Resources (19)   Reflections (1)

#### 8. Slopes of Linear Functions

Big Idea: Given the slope of a line and a point on the line, what can you figure out? How can you find other points on the line?
Standards:
Favorites (1)   Resources (17)   Reflections (2)

#### 9. Different Forms of Linear Equations

Big Idea: What are different ways to write linear functions? Which ways are most helpful in different situations?
Standards:
Favorites (1)   Resources (12)

#### 10. Linear Function Designs

Big Idea: How can you create these linear designs? Students develop generalizations about slope and y-intercept in order to graph lines electronically that make given patterns.
Standards:
Favorites (4)   Resources (12)

#### 11. Verbal Descriptions of Linear and Nonlinear Functions

Big Idea: When x changes, how does y change? Students make generalizations about this relationship and justify their generalizations.
Standards:
Favorites (1)   Resources (10)

#### 12. Linear and Nonlinear Function Review and Portfolio

Big Idea: Give students the chance to put all the pieces together. Give them the chance to make connections between the ideas and skills of the unit.
Standards:
Favorites (1)   Resources (8)

#### 13. Linear and Nonlinear Functions Summative Assessment

Big Idea: Use the time that students are working on the summative assessment to give them informal narrative feedback which they appreciate and which helps shape the culture of the classroom.
