The student will be able to graph the equation manually
The student will be able to find a graph and table on a calculator/app.
The student will be able to use APPs as tutorials/text.
This lesson is using technology as a replacement/extension of traditional methods in teaching algebra. This is necessary if you desire digital replacements for paper assignments of the past.
The following video demonstrates how to use the APP, Free GraCalc, to graph equations. Our purpose for finding these values is to check the values you found and also to see that your graph looks as it should.
This video shows the app with an iPod Touch, but the interface is the same on an iPad.
Educreations is a free site which provides a digital writing surfaces which include plain, lined, graph, and coordinate plane paper. The following tutorial on graphing a linear equation was recorded on that APP. the iPad version has tools not available on the online version.
This lesson is doable without the IOs device. Here is a video on how to graph manually and check with a graphing calculator.
This lesson can be done using a computer and educreations.com as your video producer, but there is no graph paper available. I would suggest providing students with a picture of the grid which can be added to each page as the background.
Educreations also has other tutorials which can be viewed.
Additional APPs for math help might be Khan Academy Algeba 1 which is free. There may be a textbook app to go along with a school text. Hands-On 1 Lite and Algebra Explained Lite are 2 apps which have a cost.
There are non-APP helps on YouTube and here on Sophia. Remember Sophia's lessons are rated by teachers for accuracy.
