# Exploring Linear Functions

## This Integrating
Technology eBook was designed and developed for

## Mrs. Peacock's and Mrs.
Henderson's 9th Grade Mathematics 1 Class

## at Ware County High School

Georgia Standard MM1A1:
Students will explore and interpret the characteristics of functions,
using

graphs, tables, and simple
algebraic techniques.

a. Represent functions using
function
notation.

b. Graph the basic functions
f(x) = xª, where a = 1 to 3, f(x) = x,
f(x) = |x|, and f(x) =
¼.

c. Graph transformations of
basic functions including vertical
shifts,

stretches, and shrinks, as well
as reflections across the x- and y-axes.

g. Explore rates of change,
comparing constant rates of change (i.e.,
slope)

versus variable rates of
change. Compare rates of change of linear,

quadratic, square root, and
other function
families.

PLO: Students will
evaluate linear functions by exploring rate of
change using a table and graph and interpret transformations of the
graph.
