About this Lesson

This lesson extends students' work on proportional relationships to work with non-proportional linear relationships. Students represent linear situations both graphically and algebraically. This is an accelerated class with the lesson attending to grade 7 standards during the warm up then moving onto the core lesson which is grounded in the grade 8 standards. Indicators from Core Action 3 are exhibited in this lesson.

This video shows a real-life classroom, with all the real-life challenges and successes found in daily interactions between students and teachers. It has been selected because it includes illustrations of the Core Actions and Indicators embedded in the day-to-day work happening in schools, and so it offers opportunities to practice using and norming expectations around the Instructional Practice Guide: Coaching Tool. Learn more about this video and others in the collection.
