###
Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans

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

###
Working with Literal Equations

The lesson will provide a conceptual basis for illustrating the parallelism between solving multi-step equations and translating literal equations into solutions for specified variables.

###
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.

The student will consider multiple representations of linear functions, including tables, mapping diagrams, graphs, and verbal descriptions.

###
Writing the Symbolic Representation of a Function (Graph → Symbolic)

Given the graph of a linear or quadratic function, the student will write the symbolic representation of the function.

###
Determining Reasonable Domains and Ranges (Verbal/Graph)

Given a graph and/or verbal description of a situation (both continuous and discrete), the student will identify mathematical domains and ranges and determine reasonable domain and range values for the given situations.

Writing Equations of Lines

Given two points, the slope and a point, or the slope and the y-intercept, the student will write linear equations in two variables.

###
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Data from an Equation

Given data in the form of an equation, the student will use the equation to interpret solutions to problems.

###
Investigating Methods for Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities

Given linear equations and inequalities, the student will investigate methods for solving the equations or inequalities.
