**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
