This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 5, Grade 8. The purpose of this activity is for students to sketch a graph showing the qualitative features of the function described in the problem. Building on the warm-up, in the first problem students decide what independent and dependent variables were used to create a given graph. In the second problem, students choose the variables and make their own sketch of the context. The problems are designed to have multiple correct solutions based on which quantities students identify in the descriptions.
