Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential

50 Minute Class, Algebra 1, Curriculum

Learning Goal: Recap the 3 function families from Algebra 1 using a Desmos activity. Then, prepare with released STAAR questions.



  • Common Core
    • HSF.LE.A – Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems.


  • TEKS
    • A.2(C) – write linear equations in two variables given a table of values, a graph, and a verbal description
    • A.6(C) – write quadratic functions when given real solutions and graphs of their related equations
    • A.9(C) – write exponential functions in the form f(x) = ab^x (where b is a rational number) to describe problems arising from mathematical and real-world situations, including growth and decay
