Title: Graphing at all levels: It’s a beautiful thing!
Description:
This lesson addresses the societal issue of the arts being eliminated in many public schools be employing graphs (at any level) as an artistic media. Review of all types of graphs is included through various interactive websites.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
Standard(s): [MA2013] PRE (912) 15: Create graphs of conic sections, including parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, circles, and degenerate conics, from seconddegree equations. (Alabama)
Subject: Arts Education (7  12), or Mathematics (9  12)

Title: Quadrilaterals
Description:
This is an inquiry lesson used to review Algebra 1 objectives by applying them to geometry concepts. Students explore the properties of quadrilaterals and classify them by definition. This lesson can be use in geometry classes. Students in geometry classes can apply theorems and definitions of quadrilaterals rather than as an inquiry lesson.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
Standard(s): [MA2013] GEO (912) 1: Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc. [GCO1]
Subject: Mathematics (8  12)

Title: Supply and Demand
Description:
This Illuminations lesson focuses on having students create and solve a system of linear equations in a realworld setting. By solving the system, students find the equilibrium point for supply and demand. Students should be familiar with finding linear equations from two points or slope and yintercept.
Standard(s): [MA2013] AL1 (912) 46: Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data. [SID7]

Title: Investigating Pick's Theorem
Description:
In this unit of three lessons, from Illuminations, students rediscover Pick's Theorem, which they were likely introduced to in middle school, and use algebra to determine the coefficients of the equation. They explore the concept of change as a mechanism for finding the coefficients of Pick's Theorem.

Title: Karl's Function Plotter
Description:
Karl's Function Plotter is an interactive tool in which functions can be entered and the resulting graph displayed.
**Under the Read Me it describes the following restrictions:
"Usage Restrictions: Plotting graphs is computationally intensive. To limit the burden on the internet service provider for Karl's Calculus Tutor, you will be restricted from plotting another graph after you've plotted one for 3 minutes after plotting a small, 5 minutes after plotting a medium, 12 minutes after plotting a large, 20 minutes after plotting an extra large, and 40 minutes after plotting a huge. Tiny plots incur no delay, so you can use them to preview what the larger plot will look like. So enter your fields carefully before clicking the Plot Now button. Note that if you get an error when you attempt to plot, you will not be delayed in trying again."

Standard(s): [MA2013] ALT (912) 27: Explain why the xcoordinates 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.* [AREI11]
