This week in math, we will be applying our understanding of proportionality to the coordinate plane. Students already know how to determine whether a graph is proportional (straight line that hits at (0,0) or nonproportional (not straight and/or doesn't hit at (0,0)), and this week we will work on finding the constant rate of change between two values on a coordinate plane by using the change in Y/change in X method. This will blend into finding the slope of a line and being able to explain what it means. This also involves a solid understanding of unit rate, as many of the slopes they will find will have a denominator of one. Students will be assessed on constant rate of change/slope on Friday.
