  • use the equation of a function to determine whether it is linear or nonlinear,
  • use the graph of a function to determine whether it is linear or nonlinear.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • linear equations,
  • solving equations using algebraic methods.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • explicitly calculating the slope of a linear function,
  • graphing linear functions.
