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): [AED] VA2 (712) 2: Produce works of art using a variety of techniques. [MA2013] AL1 (912) 24: Graph the solutions to a linear inequality in two variables as a halfplane (excluding the boundary in the case of a strict inequality), and graph the solution set to a system of linear inequalities in two variables as the intersection of the corresponding halfplanes. [AREI12] [MA2013] AL2 (912) 30: Graph functions expressed symbolically, and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.* [FIF7] [MA2013] ALT (912) 40: Choose trigonometric functions to model periodic phenomena with specified amplitude, frequency, and midline.* [FTF5] [MA2013] PRE (912) 1: (+) Represent complex numbers on the complex plane in rectangular and polar form (including real and imaginary numbers), and explain why the rectangular and polar forms of a given complex number represent the same number. [NCN4] [MA2013] PRE (912) 15: Create graphs of conic sections, including parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, circles, and degenerate conics, from seconddegree equations. (Alabama)

Title: Classifying Complex Numbers
Description:
This lesson helps students distinguish between strictly complex numbers, strictly real numbers and strictly imaginary numbers while learning that real numbers and imaginary numbers are subsets of the set of complex numbers.
Standard(s): [MA2013] AL1 (912) 18: Solve quadratic equations in one variable. [AREI4] [MA2013] AL2 (912) 1: Know there is a complex number i such that i^{2} = 1, and every complex number has the form a + bi with a and b real. [NCN1] [MA2013] ALT (912) 1: Know there is a complex number i such that i^{2} = 1, and every complex number has the form a + bi with a and b real. [NCN1] [MA2013] MI1 (912) 4: Explain the development and uses of sets of numbers, including complex, real, rational, irrational, integer, whole, and natural numbers. (Alabama) [MA2013] PRE (912) 1: (+) Represent complex numbers on the complex plane in rectangular and polar form (including real and imaginary numbers), and explain why the rectangular and polar forms of a given complex number represent the same number.

Title: Quick Graph
Description:
Quick Graph is a powerful, high quality, graphic calculator that has capabilities to display results in 2D or 3D. It is capable of displaying explicit and implicit (opt) equations as well as inequalities (opt) in all standard coordinate systems: Cartiesian plane, polar, spherical and cylindrical, all with amazing speed and results, which can be copied, emailed, or saved to the photo library.
Standard(s): [MA2013] PRE (912) 1: (+) Represent complex numbers on the complex plane in rectangular and polar form (including real and imaginary numbers), and explain why the rectangular and polar forms of a given complex number represent the same number. [NCN4] [MA2013] PRE (912) 15: Create graphs of conic sections, including parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, circles, and degenerate conics, from seconddegree equations. (Alabama) [MA2013] AL2 (912) 7: (+) Use matrices to represent and manipulate data, e.g., to represent payoffs or incidence relationships in a network. (Use technology to approximate roots.) [NVM6] (Alabama) [MA2013] ALT (912) 28: Create graphs of conic sections, including parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, circles, and degenerate conics, from seconddegree equations. (Alabama) [MA2013] PRE (912) 18: Graph functions expressed symbolically, and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.* [FIF7]
