Values of Linear Functions
In this activity students are asked to investigate the path of golf balls on a miniature golf course and describe the path using functions involving absolute value.
Mathematics: Students derive and model ‘paths’ using absolute value functions.
make predictions, using geometric intuition, about the paths of
golf balls, analyze graphs of functions, and determine equations
that model the path.
Technology: Students will use the “Absolute Value of Linear Function” activity developed by ExploreMath.com located at:
Below is a sample screen shot of ExploreMath’s Absolute Value of a Linear Function activity.
