Algebra I

(9 Units, 108 Lessons)

1. First Day of School

Big Idea: To use the strategy of Questions Under the Desk to Engage students in a class discussion of what they want their math classroom to look like this year.
Standards:
Favorites (23)   Resources (21)   Reflections (3)

2. Introducing Functions

Big Idea: To use the concrete example of (pieces of furniture, room location) to develop deeper student understanding of a function that leads to quantitative examples.
Standards:
Favorites (19)   Resources (14)   Reflections (1)

3. Identifying Functions and Providing Rationale

Big Idea: This lesson introduces functions with the school's vending machine, and uses a Frayer Model to summarize the different representations of relations and functions.

4. Domain and Range of Graphs Using Set Builder Notation

Big Idea: Restrictions! Students gain a strong foundation for Inequalities, and use two different colors to organize the difference between domain and range.
Standards:
Favorites (8)   Resources (16)   Reflections (2)

5. Domain and Range of Graphs Using Interval Notation

Big Idea: To have a deeper understanding of interval notation from inequalities and how the square bracket includes the number and the parentheses does not include it.

6. Evaluating Functions Using Function Notation

Big Idea: The emphasis in this lesson is to make a connection from what students already know about evaluating an expression to evaluating and interpreting a function.
Standards:
Favorites (8)   Resources (13)

7. Evaluating Graphs and Equations Using Function Notation

Big Idea: To be able to read and comprehend function notation to know the difference between when to find x and when to find y.
Standards:
Favorites (5)   Resources (19)   Reflections (2)

8. Investigation of Distance and Time Graphs Using a CBR

Big Idea: To match graphs to a student walking in real time to develop a conceptual understanding of distance over time and compare it to speed over time.

9. Introduction of Parent Functions

Big Idea: To recognize the t-table as a strategy to use to graph all unfamiliar equations.
Standards:
Favorites (4)   Resources (16)   Reflections (3)

10. Transformations of Parent Functions

Big Idea: To develop an understanding for the transformations of parent functions through repeated reasoning (MP8) and the structure (MP7) of the equation.
