TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject Area8th Grade Intensive Math
Grade Level8
Week #Nine
Unit of InstructionUnit 9: Introduction to Functions
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.F.2.4: Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • determine the initial value/ y-intercept from a table, graph, equation, or two points
  • calculate the slope/rate of change from a table, graph, equation, or two points.
  • write a linear function rule for a given relationship.
  • describe the slope and y-intercept in terms of the situation. 
Classroom Activities


  • We will talk about slope-intercept form of an equation and practice graphing equations using slope intercept to begin to understand what rate of change looks like on a graph.
  • We will do a Writing a Function Rule worksheet.
  • We will practice writing function rules.


  • We will use this day to catch up on missing assignments.


  • First period will work on fractions in rotations (with me, IXL, and worksheet)
  • Seventh period will do iReady and then work on struggling areas/catch up work.
Assignments Due
  • iReady quiz due on March 8.
Additional Resources

All IEP and ESOL accommodations will be provided daily.
