Qtr 4 Standards, weekly timeline, assessments & resouces

Standards:  All Unit 5 (project will incorporate all standards from unit # 5) MGSE8.EE.5 Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways.

MGSE8.EE.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx +b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.

MGSE8.F.3 Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear.

Assessments:  Friday 4/27:  Project task # 1 & 2 

Resources:  None
