Open Up Resources 40 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

Remember that a graph representing a proportional relationship is a line through (0,0). Learning targets: students can use the constant of proportionality to compare the pace of different animals. This lesson is the first of four where students work with proportional relationships from a grade 8 perspective. Embedded alongside their work with proportional relationships, students learn about graphing from a blank set of axes.
