Unit 5, Lesson 7# Comparing Linear Functions and Graphs

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students compare the properties of two functions that are represented in different ways via tables, graphs, equations, or written descriptions. Students use rate of change to compare linear functions. The Fluency Exercise included in this lesson takes approximately 10 minutes and should be assigned either at the beginning or at the end of the lesson. Encourage students to discuss the various methods (e.g., graphing, comparing rates of change, using algebra) as a group before they begin solving.
