Chapter 8: Relations & Functions, Slope, Lines, and Graphing
This chapter is a spring board into your studies in Algebra 1 of functions and linear equations. You will start with graphing data from tables and learn to describe and predict patterns and sequences. The next stop involves writing function rules and learning all the ins and outs of relations, functions, domain, range, and the vertical line test. The chapter rolls into the all-important study of graphing linear equations before you rock arguably the most important concept in all of Mathematics – slope or rate of change. From here you will learn all about slope-intercept form (y=mx+b), which is super rad!! The chapter closes out with a thorough introduction into solving systems of linear equations and linear inequalities by graphing. This chapter is filled with important yet also very cool Algebraic concepts. Time to rock your studies!
