Review based on:
introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings, applications of a concept or technique
Great for California standards, 4th grade and up. Will hold student interest in seeing relationships between x and y, constants and coefficients, positive and negative slope.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
Function tables, coordinate graphing, equation solving
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
What extra things must be done to make it work?
How hard was it for you to learn?
It would be very easy for students to work by trial and error (which would be sufficient at 4th and maybe 5th), but much more valuable for the teacher to support students by helping them formalize their generalizations.
Ability to meet my goals:
Math 5: Algebra and expressions, Equations and functions
Math 6: Algebra and expressions, Equations and functions
Math 7: Algebra and expressions, Equations and functions, Linear relationships, Geometry in the plane
Algebra: One Variable Equations, Functions / Relations, Linear Equations, Analyzing Linear Data
Tool: Line Gem 1 Review
