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.


Interpret the equation y=mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear.


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

Students are successful when they can…

  • use a graph, a table, equation, or verbal description to determine the unit rate of a proportional relationship.
  • graph a proportional relationship in the coordinate plane.
  • use the unit rate to make comparisons between various proportional relationships represented in different ways (graphs, tables, equations, and verbal description).
  • identify a linear function as y=mx + b;
  • identify linear functions as having graphs that are straigt lines.
  • identify functions that are not linear from equations, tables, and graphs.
  • give examples of relationships that are non-linear functions.
  • calculate 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.
