Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Four Representations of Linear Relationships

Given one representation of a linear relationship, students will create a poster displaying the other three representations of linear relationships.

###
Concert Trip to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado

**Students will evaluate and interpret data from both tabular and graphical forms to create a linear equation in either the form of direct variation (y=kx) or slope-intercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and y-intercept using a real-world relationship in word form.**

Graphing Dilations, Reflections, and Translations

Given a coordinate plane, the student will graph dilations, reflections, and translations, and use those graphs to solve problems.

###
Graphing and Applying Coordinate Dilations

Given a coordinate plane or coordinate representations of a dilation, the student will graph dilations and use those graphs to solve problems.

###
Developing the Concept of Slope

Given multiple representations of linear functions, the student will develop the concept of slope as a rate of change.
