###
Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans

**Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.**

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents

This lesson helps students understand two foundational exponential properties: The Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents. Students will collaborate to formulate a rule for these properties. Ultimately, students should conclude that when the same bases are being multiplied, exponents will be added; and when the same bases are being divided, exponents will be subtracted. As the lesson progresses, students will apply these rules to simplify expressions of various difficulties.

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Up, Up, and Away

Students will determine an appropriate tabular/graphic/formulaic linear solution given 3 sets of data points.

###
Four Representations of Linear Relationships

Given one representation of a linear relationship, students will create a poster displaying the other three representations of linear relationships.

###
Laws of Exponents

Students will discover the laws of exponents using problem-solving skills.

###
Solving Rational Equations

Students will discuss and formulate an equation to solve an engaging real-world problem. They will use manipulatives to describe how to find the common denominator they need to solve the equation. They will break up into groups and solve for a more complicated problem.

Concert Trip to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado

**Students will evaluate and interpret data from both tabular and graphical forms to create a linear equation in either the form of direct variation (y=kx) or slope-intercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and y-intercept using a real-world relationship in word form.**
