These two worksheets can be used to instruct students about decreasing linear relationships. If you are teaching CMP3, this lesson supplements Moving Straight Ahead 1.4 very nicely.

The first worksheet gives students a table of data, and asks them to continue the relationship, and investigate it. The second worksheet gives students a graph, and asks them to interpret it.

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.
Interpret the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 + 𝘣 as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function 𝘈 = 𝑠² giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line.
