This book works with linear functions including points in a coordinate system, tables and function equations. In addition, it works with solving equations in relation to calculating the missing value as well as how to calculate the intersection of two functions.
This book uses the electric car as the starting point and compares it to a car that uses gasoline. It works with specific problems in relation to the electric car. The tasks work towards illustrating, explaining and calculating with the use of various apps.
The book is designed to be used in multiple levels of mathematics classes from age 12 through adult as well as with interdisciplinary and project work.
