This algebra 1 course begins with a unit of linear equations and applications, with the first section being an examination of linear patterns. There are no equations, graphs, or tables… just real scenarios presented in picture form that require experimentation with linear patterns. The course is meant to be investigative and for students to construct strategies that will be expanded upon and refined throughout the coursework and this section is exactly that.
