Algebra I Module 5: A Synthesis of Modeling with Equations and Functions

In Module 5, students synthesize what they have learned during the year about functions to select the correct function type in a series of modeling problems. Students no longer have the benefit of a module or lesson title that includes function type to guide them in their choices. Skills and knowledge from the previous modules will support the requirements of this module, including writing, rewriting, comparing, and graphing functions and interpretation of the parameters of an equation. Students must also draw on their study of statistics in Module 2, using graphs and functions to model a context presented with data and/or tables of values. In this module, the modeling cycle is used  as the organizing structure, rather than function type.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 5.

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
