Activity Objectives for Grade/Course

### State Standards

Make connections between graphical, numerical, and analytical representations of information and transfer contexts whenever appropriate.

Alg I – sketch a graph representing a given situation – such as speed traveled related to time given and itinerary of a trip.

(A1 3.1)

# Geom -

(G 8.1)

Alg II – Interpret given situations as functions in graphs, formulas, and words.

(A2 1.8)

# Trig/PreCalc – Use a graphing calculator to graph word problems to predict outcomes

(PC 1.1)

Read a verbal description of a problem, interpret it, create appropriate sketches and equations to model the situation, and solve the problem situation to find the requested information.

Alg I – Sketch a graph – such as for a person’s height from age 0 to 25

(A1 3.1)

# Geom -

Alg II – Find two rates from car rental companies and plot costs on a graph for a given trip.

(A2 1.8)

# Trig/PreCalc – Model and solve word problems – i.e. determining what price to charge for tickets for the prom.

(PC 1.3)

Plot a discrete set of points or plot a curve on the Cartesian coordinate plan using appropriate scaling on each axis.

Alg I – Use graphing pictures to create shapes using ordered pairs.

(A1 3.1)

# Geom – Plotting vertices of a polygon to fill in missing vertex to make a certain polygon.

(G 1.4)

Alg II – Plot a relation of points on a coordinate plane an determine the domain and range

(A2 1.1)

# Trig/PreCalc – Given various functions describe the symmetries of the graphs

(PC 1.1) (PC 1.5)

Write the equation of a line in point-shape form and in slope-intercept form.

Alg I – Using various given graphs – find an equation using the slope and y-intercept

(A1 4.3)

# Geom – Graph polygons and find equations of medians or diagonals.

(G 1.4)

Alg II – Using points from a graph of a line find the equations of a line.

(A2 2.1)

# Trig/PreCalc – Write the equations of conic sections in standard form in order to find type.

(PC 1.1) (PC 1.10)

Determine the slope of a line from a graph, from given data points, or from an equation.

Alg I – Use rise over run – Given 2 points use either graphing or the slope formula to find slope

(A1 4.1)

# Geom – Given a polygon find slopes to determine parallel or perpendicular – also find slopes of diagonal, etc.

(G 1.4)

Alg II – Given a polygon find slopes of sides of polygons

(A2 2.4)
