**Title:** Penny Drop That Thang!

**Description:**
This lesson is designed to introduce and extend students' knowledge on slope and linear equations. Students will be able to differentiate finding the slope to creating a linear equation.
This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.

**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] AL1 (9-12) 23: Explain why the *x*-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations *y* = *f*(*x*) and *y* = *g*(*x*) intersect are the solutions of the equation *f*(*x*) = *g*(*x*); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where *f*(*x*) and/or *g*(*x*) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.* [A-REI11]
