mini-unit was created as a project for EME 5207,
Designing Technology Rich Curricula at the University
of Florida. This unit was designed with my Liberal Arts Math
students as the audience. This is a review course, so these students
have some prior experience with all topics covered in the course
although they are not fluent with them. I suggest that this unit
is appropriate for any student learning slope for the first time
or as a review. This unit does not require the use of any knowledge
of writing or graphing linear equations, although such experience
could prove helpful.
following technologies are utilized in this lesson. The only one
that is not freely available via the internet is microsoft Word,
however, the lesson could be adapted for use with Writely,
in which case this would require nothing but internet access.
