Unit 1, Lesson 8# Representing Proportional Relationships with Equations

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use the constant of proportionality to represent proportional relationships by equations in real-world contexts as they relate the equations to a corresponding ratio table or graphical representation. Points to remember:Proportional relationships have a constant ratio, or unit rate. The constant ratio, or unit rate can also be called the constant of proportionality. Discussion Notes How could we use what we know about the constant of proportionality to write an equation?
