View Resource Exploring Equations

This lesson from Illuminations has students study equivalence and systems of equations while identifying and using related functions. It includes an interactive applet that can be used in class. Discussion questions are also included to supplement the interactive material. The lesson is appropriate for grades 9-12 and should require one class period to complete.

View Resource Graphs from the Unit Circle

This lesson from Illuminations teaches students the features of sine and cosine graphs. Students use uncooked spaghetti to demonstrate the properties of the unit circle, which they will then represent with graphs. It is intended for students who have already learned about unit circle trigonometry, and is best for upper level high school classes. The lesson should require 3 class periods to...

View Resource Growth Rate

This lesson from Illuminations uses growth charts for girls and boys to examine rates of change. The material uses slope to approximate the rate of change in height. Students will learn how to translate this data into a graph. The lesson is appropriate for grades 9-12 and should require 1 class period to complete.

View Resource Hospital Locator
