A New Linear Form: 10/15

Today in class we studied a new linear form:  y = m(x – j) + k

Please answer the following two questions using this new form tonight for homework:

1.  Using only the structure of the equation, what coordinate is a solution to the equation? y = 9(x – 1) + 5

2.  Create an equation in this new form which would match the table below:

Function Notation – 10/9

Over the weekend, please complete the entire Gasoline Problem worksheet.

Be sure that your graphs are clearly labeled and easy to read.

We already know a lot about equations in the form of y = mx + b.

Why do you think that mathematicians use these other two equations?
Is there anything in the structure of the equations which you found interesting and/or useful?


The Big C – 10/7

2.  Create a graph, table, and equation to match the tile pattern.

3.  Does it make sense to connect the dots on the graph or not?  Why?

4.  Come to class with your own “Silent Board Game” table/rule in the form of y = mx + b.  Can you stump your classmates?
