Horizontal and Vertical Lines
Examine the vertical and horizontal changes when moving from one point to another on a line.
Slope as Rate
Investigate the idea of slope as rate of change.
Graphing Linear Equations
Students investigate how vertical transformations affect the graph and the equation of the line.
Rate of Change
Interpret slope as a rate of change.
Interpret slope as a rate of change in the context of a real-world situation.
Dog Days or Dog Years?
Students use ordered pairs, table of values, and a scatter plot to determine a function that represents real world data.
