Linear Function Models 
DescriptionIn this module students learn the properties of linear functions. They look at data sets, graphs of coordinates, and algebraic representations of functions. Then students go on a field trip to the US Mint to see how money is printed. 

Linear Functions: Distance vs. Time 
DescriptionIn this module students apply their knowledge of linear functions to the context of distance vs. time graphs. They look at data sets, graphs of coordinates, and algebraic representations of distance vs. time functions. Then students go on a field trip to a Nascar race to see how timing at the pit stop has an impact on distance vs. 

Slope and Grade 
DescriptionIn this lesson students learn how to use the slope formula to calculate steepness. In particular, students learn how to calculate steepness in the context of cycling. Cyclists use a measure called grade to calculate the steepness of a hill or mountain. Students apply their knowledge of slope to the concept of grade. 

Applications of Linear Functions: Hooke's Law 
DescriptionIn this module, students explore a physicsbased application of linear functions: Hooke's Law. By exploring the properties of springs, a simple linear model is developed. Students then explore applications of Hooke's Law, from weight scales to bungee cords. 

Applications of Linear Functions: Speed and Acceleration 
DescriptionWhen a rocket is launched into space, it starts from rest and within minutes reaches speeds of tens of thousands kilometers per hour. In other words, the rocket accelerates. 

Applications of Linear Functions: Temperature Conversion 
DescriptionTemperature is one of the most important measurements that we deal with on a daily basis. Weather, climate, food preparation, health, and other phenomena involve some type of temperature measure. The two most common units of temperature measure are Fahrenheit and Celsius. 

What Is Function Notation? 
DescriptionCheetahs can accelerate up to 75 mph and can easily outpace a gazelle. But gazelles have adapted to keep cheetahs at bay long enough to tire them out. We can analyze this phenomenon mathematically through the use of some basic concepts involving functions. 

Wildlife Refuge 
DescriptionIn this module students use their geometry and algebra skills to analyze a wildlife refuge in Nevada. Calculating the area, perimeter, and the ratio of the two allows students to analyze different configurations for a refuge. Specifically, they look at ways of designing a wild horse refuge, using the concepts they have learned. 

Why Are Castles So Tall? 
DescriptionIn this module students explore indirect measurement by seeing how simple angle measure, height measurements, and tangent ratios can be used to calculate distances. The context of castles provides a historically relevant military purpose for the tallness of castles. 

Algebra Application: Creating an Exercise Chart 
In this Algebra Application, students develop a linear mathematical model based on the maximum heart rate during exercise based on age. Using this model, students investigate heart rate for moderate and vigorous workouts. The math topics covered include: Mathematical modeling 

Algebra Application: Linear Functions: Circumference vs. Diameter 
In this Algebra Application, students study the direction between diameter and circumference of a circle. Through measurement and data gathering students analyze the line of best fit and explore ways of calculating pi. The math topics covered include: Mathematical modeling
