Remember those unit rates you taught way back when? Well we are using them again as we explore proportional relationships in graphs.

Graphing-Proportional-Relationships

Dollars per pound, amount paid per hour, miles per minute…We will look at them all as students explore the connection between the unit rate and the slope of a line. They will use this connection as they practice interpreting and comparing relationships represented in different forms including equations, tables, graphs and written situations.

I think it’s safe to say that the relationship between time spent and fun is a positive one in this activity!
