Recognize that the rate of change of the linear relationship is the same value as the slope of the graph of the relationship. Learning targets: students can find the rate of change of a linear relationship by figuring out the slope of the line representing the relationship. If students will use actual cups, gather cups and perform activities ahead of time so that you know measurements for your particular type of cup. The two activities use a situation where the height of a stack of styrofoam cups is not proportional to the number of cups in the stack.
