Linear Equations Algebra Unit for Special Education ADVANCED Linear Functions


Total Pages 229 pages plus 112 slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 1 month


This algebra unit on advanced linear functions and equations contains 229 pages and 112 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism who are in middle and high school.


This unit covers:

  • Interpreting function graphs
  • Graphing data from a function table
  • Simple calculations of slope
  • Identifying x and y intercepts
  • Predicting and graphing correlations from a function table


This advanced unit addresses more advanced concepts when it comes to function families including calculating slope, graphing function tables, interpreting scatter plots, x and y-intercepts, and more in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material.


There are MANY opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on these very abstract and challenging concepts. This repetition helps students make connections to these concepts using a lot of real-life examples.


In addition, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated into these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.
