Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.

Solve It! You are paying to print pictures from your digital camera at the photo shop. You choose one size for all your prints. What is one possible graph of the relationship between the total cost and the number of pictures you print?

Be sure to include relevant graph detail: label axes, indicate units on both axes, and use arrows to represent end behavior, as appropriate.

Problem 3 Got It? Graph the function rule.

The amount of water w in a wading pool, in gallons, depends on the amount of time t, in minutes, the wading pool has been filling, as related by the function rule w = 3t.

Be sure to include relevant graph detail: label axes, indicate units on both axes, and use arrows to represent end behavior, as appropriate.
