This is a great station activity for common core eighth grade math. Students describe a variety of linear functions in three ways - writing an equation, making a table of values, and a verbal description. This can also be used as a classwork or homework assignment. A rich and open-ended activity in a small space (just two pages).
Look out for this activity and many others in my eighth grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!

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.
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.
