This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 3, Grade 8. In this activity, they investigate the y-intercept and slope together and investigate what happens when their values are switched. In contexts like this one, the y-intercept and the slope come with natural units and understanding this can help graph accurately. Specifically, the y-intercept is the number of pages Lin read before she starts gathering data for the graph.
