This resource was developed to partially meet the requirements of the 8th Grade Functions Standards below, with primary focus on SLOPE/RATE OF CHANGE:
Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.
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.
It contains the following resources:
1) Introduction to Slope NOTES & PRACTICE PROBLEMS
· Types of Slopes QUICK DRILL* [Display in Separate PPT File]
· Comparing Slopes in Different Contexts
2) Multiple Choice TEST PRACTICE
3_ Answer Keys to All Parts
*A version of the Quick Drill for Google Forms included
**Equations: There is an OPTIONAL challenge included which teaches students how to convert an equation in standard form to slope-intercept. However, this skill is NOT found anywhere in the 8th grade standards and is introduced in 9th grade.
