AIM: How can we find a unit rate in a description, equation, or table?
HW: Unit 3: Comparing and Scaling; ACE#9, p.53
Do Now: Find the rate table for each situation.
1. You drive 300 miles in 6 hours.
2. A snail went 2 miles in 5 hours.
Announcement: Please stop by during lunch hours when you have any questions on classwork or homework.
Classwork: We worked on Problem 2.3 again today in class. We established more connections between tables, equations, and graphs. We started by looking at Noralie's car that goes 600 miles with 20 gallons of gas. We discussed how finding the unit rate can help us figure out other mileages with correspondings distances. We created a rate table which allowed us to graph the relationship to make a visual connection. From the graph, students observed that it created a straight line that passed through the origin. We noticed that it was also a proportional relationship. Hence, all proportional relationships, when graphed, create straight lines through the origin. This is a MAJOR point in this unit.
