8th Grade MAT Targeted Standards Domain (EE) Expressions and Equations Cluster: Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.

MAT-08.EE.05 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.

Student Learning Targets:

Knowledge Targets

I can graph proportional relationships in a coordinate plane.

Reasoning Targets

I can interpret the unit rate of a proportional relationship as the slope of the graph that intersects the origin.

Skills Domain (Performance) Targets

I can compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways, such as tables, graphs, and equations.
