Date: 2/3/10
Objective: You will be able to find the slope of a line as well as find constant and variable rates of change.

  • Warm Up p. 277 #31-36
  • Lesson 5-3 Notes Slopes and Rate of Change

    • What is slope? Slope is a measure of the steepness of a line, also known as the rise over the run. This can be determined by calculating the change in y (rise) divided by the change in x (run). In other words, slope is your incline.
      • You will often see a triangle symbol when dealing with slope. This triangle is the greek letter Delta, and means "a change in".
    • How do I tell if my slope is positive? A line with positive slope will ascend or climb from left to right.
    • How do I tell if my slope is negative? A line with negative slope will descend or fall from left to right.
    • How do I graph a line? You can determine the graph of a line if you know the slope of the line and a point on the line.
      • For example: You know the slope of a line to be -3/4, and a point on the line is (-3, 2). First of all the slope is negative, so as you move from left to right, your line should be falling. Therefore, starting at the point (-3, 2) go down 3 spaces and over to the right 4 spaces. You should now be at the point (1, -1). Do this again. You should now be at the point (5, -4). Once you have multiple points located, you can use a ruler to draw a straight line through those points.
    • How do I tell if my rate is constant or changing? As you move from point to point along your graph, does your change in x and y values stay the same?
      • For example, let's say you begin with a point at the origin (0, 0) and move to the next point at (2, 4). Your y value changed by 4 and your x value changed by 2. Therefore, your slope, or rise over run is 4/2. This fraction can be simplified to 2/1. For these two points, your slope is positive 2.
      • Now let's move from the point (2, 4) to the next point (4, 6). This time your x value changed by 2 and your y value changed by 2. Therefore your slope, or rise over run, between these two points is 2/2. This fraction can be simplified to 1/1. Therefore your slope is positive 1.
      • Since the slope does not remain the same, your graph is not constant.

Homework: 5-3 WS 5-3_WS.jpg 5-3_WS_001.jpg

Date: 2/2/10
Objective: You should be able to find and compare unit rates.
  • Warm Up p. 273 #21-26 / Accelerated Math
  • Review last night's homework
  • Notes and classwork p. 276 # 5, 6
Things to remember:
  • There are three ways to write a ratio:
    1. as a fraction 5 / 6
    2. using a colon 5 : 6
    3. using a word 5 to 6
  • Ratios can be reduced
    • For example, let's say you are comparing the number of middle school students. If there are 125 7th graders and 150 8th graders, your ratio of 7th graders to 8th graders is 125 : 150. This ratio can be reduced by dividing both numbers by a common factor. In this case, one common factor would be 5. If you divide both numbers by 5, your ratio of 7th graders to 8th graders is 25 : 30.
    • If you want to reduce your ratio to simplest form, divide both numbers by the least common multiple (LCM). In this case, the LCM of 125 and 150 is 25. When you divide both numbers by 25, your ratio of 7th graders to 8th graders is 5 : 6.

Objective: You will demonstrate your understanding of Chapter 4 (sections 1-3). You will create tables using functions.

  1. What is a function?
    • In math, a function is a rule whereby you can have exactly one output value for every input value. You are a given a relationship between an input value, represented by x, and an output value, represented by y. An example of function would be y = 3x, which would be read as "y is equal to three times the value of x." For each input value, you can only have one output value.
