## Applications of Linear Functions: Cricket Chirps |
##
## DescriptionCrickets 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. |

## Applications of Linear Functions: Hooke's Law |
##
## DescriptionIn 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. |
||

## 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. |
||

## Applications of Linear Functions: Circumference vs. Diameter |
##
## DescriptionAs the size of a circle changes, so does the size of the diameter and that of the circumference. In fact, there is a linear relationship between these two measures. This relationship can be modeled with a linear function. |
||

## What Is a Function? |
##
## DescriptionIn 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. |
||

## What Are Domain and Range? |
##
## DescriptionWhat 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. |
