- Representations of Linear Functions: Cab fares - The charge for a cab ride is determined by the length of travel. Some companies also charge a basic, fixed amount. At this site you will find descriptions of fares of three competing cab companies and you are asked to suggest a new fare.
- Slope-Intercept Form - [12 slides] this show uses animation very effectively, provides examples and the chance for student response and invludes a great real-world application of slope-intercept [This expired link is available through the Wayback Machine Internet Archive.
