# ResourceMAP - Linear Equations from Tables, Graphs & Parameters - Student Edition

### Author: Gary Froelich

ResourceMAP modules are relatively short and designed for flexible implementation; that is, they can be used in regular classes as well as in special test-preparation settings. Each module contains a set of contextual problems in several formats: multi-part open response, short response, and multiple-choice. Accompanying the problem set are tip sheets that serve several purposes including lists of formulas, calculator instruction, and brief reviews of the module's underlying mathematics. Also provided are teacher notes (the module purpose, the mathematical focus, and implementation commentary), answers to all problems, and (in a few cases) handout masters. **Linear Equations from Tables, Graphs & Parameters**

Equations are a useful way to describe certain patterns in tables and graphs.

Equations allow you to decide whether a value matches the rest of the pattern, or to

make predictions based on the pattern. *Linear* equations are important to

master—they are used by everyone, the patterns are easy to detect, and the

equations are easy to use. In this activity, you examine situations that show a linear

pattern, describe them with an equation, and then use the equation to make

predictions.
