Applications of Linear Functions: Cricket Chirps

Crickets are known for their chirping sounds. But did you know that the number of times a cricket chirps per minute is an indicator of the outside temperature? In fact, the relationship between cricket chirps and the outside temperature can be modeled by a linear function. In this module, students will explore the function that can be used to determine the outside temperature based on the number of times a cricket chirps per minute.

First, students watch a video that describes the chirp-temperature phenomenon. Students are then walked through the process of developing the linear model. They look at inputs and outputs, determine the dependent and independent variables, and explore the linear function with a graphing calculator activity.

Applications of Linear Functions: Hooke's Law

In this module, students explore a physics-based 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.

Students investigate the properties of springs and identify two variables: the displacement of the spring (extension or compression) and the amount of force involved. From this students identify the independent variable and dependent variable. A graphing calculator activity (using the Desmos graphing tool) allows students to explore the value of k in the function F = kx.

What Is a Function?

In algebra, the topic of functions is extremely important. But what is a function? In this module students will learn what a function is and how to represent it. They'll explore data tables, graphs, and equations. Plus, they'll see the connection from one to the other.

Students will learn about function machines, and we draw an analogy to actual machines. A short video shows how a flat disk of aluminum (the input) is turned into a soda can (the output) by a series of machines that stretch and shape the disk into the can.

What Are Domain and Range?

What do drones have to do with domain and range? In this module, students learn about an emerging high-tech delivery system and use that as a vehicle for learning about a function's domain and range. Students will graph data from a table and explore domain and range, and then they graph a continuous function. This highly engaging module will give students a solid understanding of algebraic functions, specifically domain and range.

In this module students will learn the following concepts:

  • Finding the domain and range for a set of coordinates that define a function
  • Finding the domain and range of a continuous function that doesn’t extend to infinity
  • Finding the domain and range of a continuous function that extends to infinity

The potential for oil exploration in the controversial Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) sets the scene for this problem. A linear regression of oil consumption data over the past 25 years reveals an interesting pattern. How could new oil fields like ANWR help in breaking our dependence on foreign oil?
