__Standards and Benchmarks Covered in this Lesson__

I,1,2: Analyze, interpret
and translate among representations of patterns including tables, charts, graphs, matrices, and vectors.

I,2,2: Develop a mathematical
concept of function and recognize that functions display characteristic patterns of change (e.g., linear, quadratic, exponential).

__Introduction__

**Anticipatory Set:** I will ask a student to help me demonstrate the relationship between rate, time and outcome (distance
production). I will have two students assemble a product (pencil with eraser with a clip) given different restrictions. We
will discuss their productivity individually and collectively.

1)
**Objectives:** -After a short demonstrations and progressing through the investigation,
the students will be able to write out an equation relating three or more variables that correspond to a given scenario.

**
**- Students will also be able to solve an equation
with n variables given the value of (n-1) variables.

__Input:__ **We will first discuss the Maintenance
Master 1b #6 and #7**

¨
Discuss solving for zeros/x-intercept/
roots

¨
Discuss geometric shapes
and their properties

__Investigation__

If there is
time remaining, students will work through Investigation 3 (Pg 11) in the text, I will guide them to a deeper understanding
of the content by giving multiple representations of the content and by asking carefully designed questions.
