Students will use slope throughout this lesson as they get drawn into a story problem of an agricultural compound that is threatened by a hazardous vine. As students progress through the parts of the math story, they will be using slope and applications of slope for every part (and have fun too!)

Not sure what a math story is? Watch this video to find out how math stories got started, or this video preview of the Killer Vine Slope Math Story!

The story itself is a 1-class period lesson. In addition to the slope story lesson with a video introduction, this resource also has two practice worksheets, a blank slope graphic organizer and a completed slope graphic organizer (which could also be used a poster).

**This product is can also be purchased at a discounted price as a part of the Slope Intercept Bundle or Linear Equation and Inequality Bundle!**

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.
Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.
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.
