c) Is the relation linear? How do you know?
d) What is the value of y when x = 33?
8. A helicopter is at a height of 1600m when it starts descending to land.
The helicopter’s height changes at an average rate of 140m/min.
a) Write an equation that relates the height of the helicopter, H metres,
to the time since the helicopter began its descent, t minutes.
b) What is the height of the helicopter 9 min after it began its descent?

The relation is linear because the points on the graph lie on a straight line. There is
also a pattern formed in the table of values.
y = 52.5
H = 1600 + 140s
340 m

present.
No major errors or omissions
regarding any of the information
and/or processes that were explicitly

This is the target level for
proficiency.
(a) Observe and
describe a situation
relevant to self, family,
or community that a
given graph might
represent and explain
the meaning conveyed
by the graph.
(b) Sort a set of graphs
into representations of
linear and non-linear
relations.
(d) Generalize strategies
for determining if a
given linear relation will
have a graph that is
horizontal, vertical,
increasing, or
decreasing.
(a) I can observe and
describe a situation
relevant to self, family,
or community that a
given graph might
represent and explain
the meaning shown by
the graph.
(b) I can sort a set of
graphs into linear and
non-linear relations.
(d) I can generalize
strategies for deciding if
a given linear relation
will have a graph that is
horizontal, vertical,
increasing, or
decreasing.
(c) Sketch graphs for given linear
relations, including horizontal and
vertical lines, with and without the
use of technology.
(e) Extrapolate to determine a value
for either variable in a linear relation
beyond the shown graph.
(f) Verify an extrapolated value
from a graph by using substitution in
the related linear relation.

for either variable in a linear relation
within the shown graph.

from a graph by using substitution in
the related linear relation.

from a graph by using substitution in
