5. Materials and Aids-
 TI-83 plus or TI-84 calculator, projector with TI connection or TI SmartView
6. Methods Used and Procedures-

A. Introduction-

 1.Verbally review Slope-Intercept formula 2.Verbally review the roles of "m" and "b" in the y=mx+b formula

B. Development-

 1.Hand generate coordinates from sample y=mx+b equation 2.Hand create graph from system of coordinates 3. Explanation of variables, equation and results

C. Practice-

 1.Create application named PTSLOPE 2.Guide through program entry

D. Independent Practice-

 1.Student generate the graphs for five example equations on presentation TI-Calc with students at desks comparing results

E. Accommodations For Students-

 1.Printed instructions for program creation. 2.TI-Link for transfer of programs to allow group solutions to errors

F. Checking for understanding-

 1.Student creation and execution of an application modeling the Slope-Intercept form of a linear equation visually verified by the instructor. 2.Student comprehension of the correlation between programmatic variables versus mathematic variables through oral identification. 3.Student comprehension of the correlation between programmatic functions versus mathematic functions through oral identification. 4. Student increased comprehension of correlation between symbolic versus graphic forms of an equation through oral identification.

G. Closure-

 1.Turn off calculators. 2.Return loaned calculators to storage. 3. If time remaining perform program transfer of "YinYang" program through TI-Link with references given to TI-Calc site.
7. Evaluation-
 1.Functional program which inputs user variables and then outputs a graph = Satisfactory 2.Functional program with incorrect output = Needs Improvement 3. Not functional program = Unsatisfactory
