Algebra 2 + Trigonometry

Unit 2 – Linear Relations and Functions

This unit reviews and reinforces students previous knowledge of linear relationships.  Students explore the meaning of slope as rate of change.  They develop equations for representing linear functions.  Using these equations, students model linear phenomena, both with physics based and regression based equations.  Students explore how well data is fit with a linear model through the correlation coefficient.  Finally students return to the concept of inverse functions by exploring inverses of linear functions.
