*This is the internet scavenger hunt we completed in 5th hour. It's posted here to bring students in to the website first and for those reviewing for the BA tomorrow who want one more collection of ideas to help prepare for the exam.*

Hello Algebra 1 students. In this Internet scavenger hunt you will be reviewing the topics covered in the first half of Chapter 5 on linear functions. You will receive a handout from your teacher that will help you organize and answer the questions below on linear functions. The questions relate to the websites directly above them.

**Points on a graph**

1) Take a look at the graph on this website. Answer the questions next to the graph.

**Point Plotter**

2) Click on the activity that says “Point Plotter.” Take 1-2 minutes and plot points on the graph. On a scale of 1-5 (5 being awesome and 1 being not so great), how did you do at plotting points?

**Functions**

3) What is the vertical line test?

4) What does it show us?

5)Which linear equation is NOT a function?

**Intercepts**

6) What does it say ALGEBRAICALLY about intercepts?

7) What does it say SPECIFICALLY about intercepts?

8) Give an example of an ordered pair for x-intercepts and y-intercepts.

9) Write down your answers to the questions.

10) On a scale of 1-5 (5 being awesome and 1 being not so great), how did you do at finding intercepts?

**Slope and y-intercepts**

11) What is the equation they give for slope?

12) What are the two points they use for positive slope? What is the slope? Draw a picture of the line that goes through the two points.

13) What are the two points they use for negative slope? What is the slope? Draw a picture of the line that goes through the two points.

14) What is the definition and the equation that they give for slope?

15) Out of this website and the previous website, which definition/formula of slope did you like better? Why?

16) Take a look at the graph on this website. Answer the questions next to the graph.

**Real-Line Linear Function**

17) What is the real-life example the website gives?

18) What is the equation?

19) What is the slope?

20) What is the y-intercept?

21) Draw a graph of the equation.

**Line Plotter**

22) Click on the activity that says “Line Plotter.” Take 1-2 minutes and create lines on the graph. On a scale of 1-5 (5 being awesome and 1 being not so great), how did you do at plotting points?
