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


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!
