Name: _________________________________________ Period: ______ Date: ____________ In the previous lesson, you determined the growth and starting value of geometric tile patterns, and made connections between the pattern, table, and equation. In this lesson you will use your knowledge to determine an accurate value of growth from a graph. During this lesson, ask your teammates the following focus questions: x What makes lines steeper? What makes lines less steep? x How is growth related to steepness? x Where is the starting value on a line? 2-11. The table below represents a tile pattern. Figure # 0 1 2 3 4 # of tiles 2 7 12 17 22 a. Make a graph that represents this tile pattern. Should the points be connected? b. Draw a continuous line through the tile pattern points. Extend the line to the edges of the graph and beyond. The line you drew models the growth of the tile pattern. Models are often imperfect, but they are useful in describing complex situations and for making predictions. What assumptions does this linear model make about the tile pattern?

2-12. Does the model in the previous problem appear to be a function? If so, write the equation in function notation. If not, explain why it is not a function. 2-13. The three graphs below each model a different tile pattern. For each model: o Describe how the tile pattern grows and the starting value (number of tiles in Figure 0). x represents the figure number, and y represents the number of tiles in the figure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
