Grades 6-8 / Math / Pre-algebra
CCSS: Math.8.EE.B.5

Common Core State Standards

 Math Math 8 Grade 8 EE Expressions & Equations B Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations 5 Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed. Download Common Core State Standards (PDF 1.2 MB)
