Guided notes on the constant of proportionality and three different representations of proportional relationships are included in this activity. The unit rate is found using an equation, a graph or a table.
Students will compare proportional relationships which are represented in different ways. There is an example that is followed by four application problems. This activity may be used as a group activity.
Guided notes and examples on determining the slope of a line when the graph is given are included in the activity. Similar triangles are used to show that the slope of a line may be found by choosing any two points on the line. Zero slopes and undefined slopes are covered as well as positive and negative slopes.
Students will discover the slope-intercept form of a line. They will identify the slope and y-intercept given an equation. They will write an equation of a line given a graph.
Students will write an equation of a line given a graph and sketch the graph of a line given an equation in slope-intercept form.
Detailed teacher notes and answer keys are included.
