Monday Week of 12/01/14 – 12/05/14 Teacher: Ms. Barnett Team: Algebra Students will be able to determine the x-intercept and y-intercept from graphs. Warm up Guided practice: Determine the x-intercept and y-intercept from graphs. Independent practice: Identify and write as ordered pairs the x and y intercepts from graphs. Friday Wed/Thur Tuesday Students will be able to evaluate a linear function and identify the x-intercept and y-intercept. Guided Practice: Determining the x and y intercepts from a linear function Independent practice Students will explore changes in m on the graph of y=mx+b Warm-up Guided practice: exploring changes to m Independent practice: Starburst activity – graphing lines of different slopes on the same coordinate plane and summarizing the effects of changing the slope of a line Students will explore changes in b on the graph of y=mx+b Warm-up Guided practice: exploring changes to b Independent Practice: Railroad activity – exploring changes to the y-intercept when the slope stays unchanged
