Understand that a greater rate of change means a steeper graph if axes are scaled identically Understand that if the rate of change is positive, the function is increasing, and if it is negative, the function is decreasing. Understand that a linear function can sometimes be thought of as a function with an initial value that increases or decreases at a constant rate. Let's investigate linear functions. Learning targets: students can explain in my own words how the graph of a linear function relates to its rate of change and initial value.
