This is a custom collection (by R. Bloom) of homework and review problems to accompany Collaborative Statistics textbook custom collection by R. Bloom. Content is derived from Collaborative Statistics written by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean, faculty members at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. The textbook by S. Dean and B. Illowsky was developed over several years and has been used in regular and honors-level classroom settings and in distance learning classes. This textbook is intended for introductory statistics courses being taken by students at two– and four–year colleges who are majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Intermediate algebra is the only prerequisite. The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. This custom version of their collection has been modified by R. Bloom for her classes at De Anza College. (less)

This lesson should take one day of class time. The purpose of this lesson is to develop an understanding of quadratic functions. We use the linear relation between distance, constant speed and time and the quadratic relation between the vertical distance of a falling object and time. From these, students will develop two new quadratic functions. The graph of one of these provides a picture of the physical phenomenon they have viewed. (less)

This task is designed as a follow-up to the task F-LE Do Two Points Always Determine a Linear Function? Linear equations and linear functions are closely related, and there advantages and disadvantages to viewing a given problem through each of these points of view. This task is intended to show the depth of the standard F-LE.2 and its relationship to other important concepts of the middle school and high school curriculum, including ratio, algebra, and geometry.

An important property of linear functions is that they grow by equal differences over equal intervals. In this task students prove this for equal intervals of length one unit, and note that in this case the equal differences have the same value as the slope. In F.LE Equal Differences over Equal Intervals 2, students prove the property in general (for equal intervals of any length). (less)
