Graphing Linear Equations

Graphing Linear Equations

You know you’ve been wondering how an algebraic equation can be plotted as a line graph. Now, check out this BrainPOP movie to find out! In it, Tim will show you how to use a linear graph to calculate how much honey Moby’s beehive will produce every week. Tim will show you how a linear function compares two variables, one representing an input, and the other an output. You’ll learn how to convert a ratio into an equation that will generate points along a line. In the process, Tim will teach you about ordered pairs, the standard for expressing graph points in numerical terms. Wonder about graphing linear equations no more!

## Math Concepts Lesson Plan: Lure of the Labyrinth Mine Shaft Game

In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 6, 7, and 8, students use BrainPOP resources to to explore mathematical concepts. They will describe, represent, and apply numbers using mental strategies, paper/pencil and technology through an online game. Students will also identify, describe, extend, and create numeric patterns and functions, and interpret and write a rule for a one operation function table.
