Using Real Life Graphs

Students learn how to model situations or procedures using real life graphs.  Learning progresses from drawing the real life graph when given the y-intercept value to finding the equation of the line to model the situation as an equation.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to complete a table of results when given a rule.
  • Most students should be able to use a straight-line graph model a mathematical procedure.
  • Some students should be able to model situations or procedures by translating them into formulae and by using graphs.
