Algebra, Patterns, and Functions: The Power of the Line
Through inquiry, participants deepen their knowledge of solution representations of systems of equations and apply them in solving rich problems. They observe, make conjectures, and generalize numeric and geometric patterns. They examine the meaning of function, function notation, and inverse functions. Participants revisit and deepen their understanding of rate of change and slope, linear, quadratic, and exponential functions. They use technology and instructional materials to support and extend their reasoning.
