Week #15
Unit of Instruction2: Proportional Relationships, Non-Proportional Relationships and Functions
Standard(s) Taught


Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph.  Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways.


Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.
