### Linear Graphing Math Series

#### Class Experience

###### US Grade 6 - 9

###### Beginner Level

###### Aligned with Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

The class structure is a self-paced course. Students can interact with the instructor through posts. The student will review the videos and study notes on the lesson topic. Student progress will be measured through completion of weekly homework, quizzes, and the final exam. Homework and quizzes will be graded with comments from the instructor to help students improve where needed. Please note that the difficulty of the homework and quizzes can be personalized.

8 lessons//8 Weeks

Week 1Lesson 1Plotting and the Coordinate SystemIn this session, the student will learn how to identify the location of points on a coordinate graph and find the length of a line segment. Exercise - Label ordered pairs, determine distance between points, identify the location of coordinates, and plot points in different quadrants. Applications to plotting geometrical shapes will also be covered in this lesson.Week 2Lesson 2Finding Slope Graphically and With FormulasIn this session, the student define slope and learn how to calculate slope graphically and with a formula for linear equations. Students will be introduced to direct variation (k). The student will also learn the relationship of slope (m) with the constant of proportionality (k) and how to identify the direction, magnitude of the slope (m). Exercise - Define slope and constant of proportionality. Calculate the slope and constant of proportionality using graphs and with formulas.Week 3Lesson 3Building Linear EquationsIn this session, the student will learn how to identify the intercepts of a linear equation. The student will also learn how to write linear equations in the general form, slope-intercept, point-slope, and intercept forms. Exercise - Practice activities on writing linear equations in different forms and graphing.Week 4Lesson 4Special relationships of Linear EquationsIn this session, the student will learn how to identify, write, and graph horizontal, vertical, parallel and perpendicular lines. Exercise - Practice activities on graphing and writing parallel and perpendicular lines and their real-world applications. Examples using geometric shapes will be included in this assignment.Week 5Lesson 5Systems of Equations by Graphing and EliminationIn this session, the student will learn how to solve systems of equations using graphing and elimination methods. Exercise - Practice activities solving two equations using graphing and elimination.Week 6Lesson 6Systems of Equations by SubstitutionIn this lesson, students will learn how to solve systems of equations using substitution. Exercise - Practice activities on how to find solutions for pairs of equations using the substitution method.Week 7Lesson 7Systems of Three EquationsIn this lesson, students will learn how to use the methods of substitution, elimination, and graphing to solve a system of three equations.Week 8Lesson 8Application with Word ProblemsIn this session, the student will practice translating word problems into linear equations. An emphasis on the application of learned skills to problem-solving and critical thinking will be emphasized in this lesson. Topics covered will include direct variation, solving linear equations, and systems of equations. Exercise - Practice will include solving different forms systems of equations from word problems.

I have a doctorate degree in Molecular Biophysics with more than 5 years as a math tutor to elementary to high school students. I have been an online and hybrid educator for over 10 years.
