MAFS.8.F.1.2

Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).

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.

MAFS.8.F.2.5

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.

MAFS.8.EE.1.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.

MAFS.8.EE.1.4

Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will be successful when they can…

  • identify the properties of a function written in algebraic form (e.g., rate of change, meaning of y-intercept, linear, non-linear).
  • compare the properties of two functions that are represented differently (e.g., as an equation, in a table, graphically, or a verbal representation).
  • describe the features of a graph (increasing/ decreasing, linear/ non-linear, or constant)
  • identify the type of function given a graph.
  • create stories that correspond with qualitative features of a graph and vice versa.
  • write very large and very small numbers in scientific notation.
  • compare numbers written in scientific notation to determine how many times larger or smaller one number written in scientific notation is than another.
  • add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers written in scientific notation by applying laws of exponents.
  • select the appropriate units for very large and small quantities when solving problems.
