## 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. |

## 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: 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. |
||

## 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. |
||

## Accident Investigation |
## DescriptionWhen a driver slams the brakes on a car, skid marks are created on the road. Accident investigators can measure the length of the skid marks to estimate the speed of the car. This involves using a quadratic function. |
