Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.
a. Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table, or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.
b. Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.
c. Represent proportional relationships by equations.
d. Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r ) where r is the unit rate


Use proportional relationships to solve multi-step ratio and percent problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• determine whether two quantities are proportional by examining the relationship given in a table, graph, equation, diagram or as a verbal description.
• identify the constant of proportionality when presented with a proportional relationship in the form of a table, graph equation, diagram, or verbal descriptions.
• write an equation that represents a proportional relationship.
• identify proportional relationships and identify the unit rate as the slope of the related linear function
• recognize that constant of proportionality is a representation of direct variation.

• use proportional reasoning to solve real-world ratio problems, including those with multiple steps.
• use proportional reasoning to solve real-world percent problems, including those with multiple steps.
• recall conversion of percent from ratio to decimal to percent form.
• solve percent of increase/decrease problems.

Classroom Activities

This week we will begin our Functions unit. We will be completing notebook activities and other in class activities that will help practice and master the above concepts. 

Assignments Due

Please check back for updates on Assignments due as this depends how fast we get through the review objectives. 

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both MathSpace and IXL.
