Nicholas Spry EDU 105 Introduction to Contemporary Education What’s Babe’s line? This lesson will help students find the equation of a line given two or more points. The lesson will engage the students, produce an understanding of ‘real world’ linear data, and require students to accurately determine the linear function that describes such data. Professional Standards Addressed: Number and Operations o understand numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems o understand meanings of operations and how they relate to one another o compute fluently and make reasonable estimates Communication o organize and consolidate their mathematical thinking though communication o communicate their mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers, teachers, and others o analyze and evaluate the mathematical thinking and strategies of others Connections o recognize and use connections among mathematical ideas o understand how mathematical ideas interconnect and build on one another to produce a coherent whole Objectives: At the completion of this lesson, students should be able to: Find the slope of a line given two points Find the equation of a line given the slope and a point Find the equation of a line given two points Instructional Protocol: The lesson will begin with the problem of Mr. Lopez’s baseball card. Students will not know how to solve the problem at the beginning of class. Introduce the students to finding the slope of a line if given two points. Use the guided notes and have the class split into groups to find the slopes of the four sets of points. Go from group to group to make sure each student understands the concept. Give bonus points to first group to correctly get all four slopes. Following the guided notes go back to the original problem and solve for the slope of the line. Proceed with the notes and show students how to find the equation of a line, knowing the slope and a point. Keep students in groups and again have them compete for a
