This Bundle has four activities. Each activity highlights the linear function. Students analyze graph stories to determine the changes in rates and to write linear equations. In Slopes in the City, students create the map of a city using coordinates for key locations.
In Graph Story: Celtic Tree, it's time to plant a fir tree in my back yard to celebrate my Celtic roots! Students practice their skills in working equations of lines, rate of change, linear functions in this one page worksheet.
In Graph Story: Bicycling, Bill goes on a bicycling trip. A graph illustrates his distance from home while on his trip. Students analyze the graph and discuss slope as rate of change. In addition, students have the opportunity to use their creativity to write a story that is illustrated by the graph.
In Graph Story: Trip to Mall, Maritza goes on a shopping trip via the metro rail. A graph illustrates her distance from the metro station while shopping. Students analyze the graph, create their own math questions and write a story that is illustrated by the graph.
In Slopes in the City, students use a coordinate plane to represent a map of a city. Students use the coordinates to find the slope between points and the linear equation representing the line between points. Last, students use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance from place to place.
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.2 Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.B.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.
CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.B.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.
