Grade Level/ Course: 8th Grade Standard with code: Domain: 8.F.4 Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x,y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of a situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values. Functions Cluster: Use functions to model relationships between quantities. Type: ______Knowledge Knowledge Targets Recognize that slope is determined by the constant rate of change. Recognize that the y-intercept is the initial value where x=0. ___X____Reasoning ______Performance Skill ______Product Reasoning Targets Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Performance Skills Targets Product Targets Relate the rate of change and initial value to real world quantities in a linear function in terms of the situation modeled and in terms of its graph or a table of values. Determine the rate of change from two (x,y) values, a verbal description, values in a table, or graph. Determine the initial value from two (x,y) values, a verbal description, values in a table, or graph. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Model with mathematics. Use appropriate tools strategically. Attend to precision. Look for and make use of structure. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
