Math Gizmo update - 3 new sets of Lesson Materials

It's Back to School time for many, and in celebration - well, OK, at least in recognition - of this, we're happy to introduce 3 new sets of Lesson Materials!

The new Lesson Materials accompany a few of our more popular pre-algebra to early-algebra Gizmos:

Introduction to Functions Gizmo

Slope - Activity B Gizmo

Slope-Intercept Form of a Line - Activity B Gizmo

All of our updated Lesson Materials have 4 documents (Student Exploration Sheet, Answer Key, Teacher Guide, and Vocabulary Sheet), each available as a .doc (for easy editing) or a .pdf (for smaller filesize). You will need to be logged in to see all four documents.

Functions - and in particular linear functions - are big concepts in math.  We hope these Gizmos and these new Lesson Materials will help students really understand what they are, how they work, and why they're important.

Enjoy, and happy back to school!
