Students will be able to understand the purpose of functions and why they are relevant.
Graph linear equations and apply that to a real world setting.
Understand and apply slope-intercept form.
Understand and apply standard form of a line.
Understand and apply function notation.
Understand basic algebra concepts
Graph or Graphing Paper
In this course you're finally going to have your #1 question about math answered. "When will we ever use this in real life?!" This look at linear functions breaks it down from the very beginning to look at the conceptual background of the topic and then brings all the pieces together to put them to use in real life scenarios. Along the way there will be clever analogies, bad jokes, and a different approach from the traditional math teacher.

I'm an engineer that decided to switch and become a math teacher that's looking to make the math world more approachable! I try to use as many real life examples for my students and try to get ahead of the question "when will we ever use this in real life?"
