This activity was created for middle school math stations on linear relationships. As students rotate through stations, they can be challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. This is an individual practice station. Here, students work independently on a guided problem solving activity. It requires students to graph proportional relationships, interpret unit rates, and derive equations in the form y=mx and y=mx+b. I laminate the included student directions to keep at the station.

Look out for this activity and many others in my eight grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!

Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed.
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.
