This is one of a set of 6 unit summaries that correspond to the Georgia Common-Core Based Standards of Excellence. Each unit summary is designed to be provided at the beginning of the unit and completed throughout the unit. It works great as a summarizes/closing activity at the end of each lesson (either individually or whole-class) and serves as a review sheet at the end of the unit.
The summaries are a combination of helpful hints, graphic organizers and places to complete a problem or add additional notes. They provide a comprehensive review of the concepts and skills that students will be asked to apply in 8th grade math.
This unit begins by distinguishing between functions and relations and linear and non-linear relationships. Students are then expected to be able to find the slope of a line various contexts, graph lines in slope-intercept form and write equations when given information about the line.
