Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans
Students will write linear equations in pointslope 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 yintercept.
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 problemsolving skills.

Rate of Change
The students will determine the rate of change from tables and graphs by using the slope formula. The students will discover and interpret the realworld applications of rate of change.

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 slopeintercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and yintercept using a realworld relationship in word form.
TXRCFP: Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points for K8 Mathematics Revised 2013
The Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points Revised 2013 was created from the 2012 revision of the TEKS as a guide for implementation of effective mathematics instruction by identifying critical areas of content at each grade level.
Vertical Alignment Charts for Revised Mathematics TEKS
This resource provides vertical alignment charts for the revised mathematics TEKS.
Reflections
These activities provide an opportunity for students to explore reflections both on and off of a coordinate plane.
Translations
These activities provide an opportunity for students to explore translations both on and off of a coordinate plane.
Dilations
These activities provide an opportunity for students to explore dilations both on and off of a coordinate plane.
Kid2Kid: Determining the Meaning of Slope and Intercepts
Kid2Kid videos on determining the meaning of slope and intercepts in English and Spanish
Drawing Conclusions about ThreeDimensional Figures from Nets
Given a net for a threedimensional figure, the student will make conjectures and draw conclusions about the threedimensional figure formed by the given net.
Interactive Math Glossary
Estimating Measurements and Using Formulas: Surface Area
Given application problems involving lateral or total surface area the student will estimate measurements and solve the problems.
Determining the Effects of Proportional Change on Area
Given pictorial representations and problem situations involving area, the student will describe the effects on area when dimensions are changed proportionally.
Determining the Effects of Proportional Change on Perimeter
Given pictorial representations and problem situations involving perimeter, the student will describe the effects on perimeter when dimensions are changed proportionally.
