PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this series of activity sheets, students will interpret the meaning of a graph, relating variables and slope features. Students will extend the interpretation of graphs to create tables of values and additional related graphs.

Students can work through the activity individually, in partners, or in small groups.

On each sheet, students will study the given graph, which represents distance from home over time. They will interpret this graph by creating their own story and table of values based on the graph features. Students can be creative! The graph may represent a person walking from home, a bird leaving its nest, an ant crawling from its anthill, or numerous other scenarios. Next, students create a graph to represent the total distance traveled based on the first graph. Last, students create a graph of the speed based on the types of slope. (This will be the most challenging!)

A blank graph sheet is provided so students can create their own.

In this download, you will receive PDFs of the 6 graphing sheets, 1 blank graphing sheet, lesson guide, and sample answer for the first sheet. Check out the preview!



Common Core Standards:
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.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSF.IF.B.4
For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.
