7th Grade MAT Targeted Standards
Domain (RP) Ratios and Proportional Relationships
Cluster: Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems

MAT-07.RP.02 Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.

  • a. Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.
  • b. Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.
  • c. Represent proportional relationships by equations.
  • d. Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate.
