ALGEBRA II STANDARDS THIS LESSON AIMS:
Students solve systems of linear equations and inequalities (in two or three variables) by substitution, with graphs, or with matrices. Estándar 2: Los estudiantes resuelven sistemas de ecuaciones lineares y desigualdades (en 2 o tres variables) por substitución, con gráficas o con matrices. Standard 5: Students demonstrate knowledge of how real and complex numbers are related both arithmetically and graphically. In particular, they can plot complex numbers as points in the plane. Estándar 5: Los estudiantes demuestran conocimiento de como los números reales y complejos se relacionan tanto aritméticamente como gráficamente. En particular, ellos grafican números como puntos en el plano. Standard 25: Students use properties from number systems to justify steps in combining and simplifying functions. Estándar 25: Los estudiantes usan propiedades de sistemas numéricos para justificar pasos en combinar y simplificar funciones. PRESENTATION CREATED BY SIMON PEREZ. All rights reserved

Find the slope for the segments at the right:
Standard 5 Slope Formula: m= y 1 2 x - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 x y Find the slope for the segments at the right: Segment AB: A(3,2), B(7,5) B x 2 y 2 x 1 y 1 m = - AB 2 5 = -3 -4 = 3 4 3 7 A C D Segment BC: C(8,2), D(10,1) x 2 y 2 x 1 y 1 m = - BC 2 1 = 1 -2 8 10 The slope is the inclination of a line or segment.

Using the run vs. the rise method, find the slope for the lines in the coordinate plane:
Standard 5 m= y 1 2 x - + - rise = run + Line a: - -4 = 4 2 4 2 6 -2 -4 -6 8 10 -8 -10 x y m = a =2 d -2 a 4 + 2 - Line b: - 11 - 4 m = b =0 +7 b 7 + Line c: +3 = - 3 4 m = c c -4 3 + 4 - Line d: -11 = - 11 4 m = d +4 PRESENTATION CREATED BY SIMON PEREZ. All rights reserved

+ + + + Standard 5 FALLING TO THE RIGHT y - - - x - c Slope for c: +
m = c = - - When we move to the right from one point to the other, we go down the right and the slope is negative! PRESENTATION CREATED BY SIMON PEREZ. All rights reserved

- - - - FALLING TO THE LEFT Standard 5 x y a - - - - Slope for a: -
m = a =+ - When we move to the left from one point to the other, we go down and the slope is always positive! PRESENTATION CREATED BY SIMON PEREZ. All rights reserved

Prove that segments AB and BC are perpendicular:
Standard 2 Prove that segments AB and BC are perpendicular: Using the slope formula: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 x y m= y 1 2 x - Segment AB: A(2,1), B(6,4) B x 2 y 2 x 1 y 1 m = - AB 1 4 = -3 -4 = 3 4 2 6 A C Segment BC: B(6,4), C(9,0) x 2 y 2 x 1 y 1 m = - BC 4 = 4 -3 6 9 Is the product of the slopes -1? The product of the slopes is -1. So, They are perpendicular. 3 4 = 4 -3 12 -12 = -1 PRESENTATION CREATED BY SIMON PEREZ. All rights reserved
