Linear Relationships Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. The Linear Relationships learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 8.F.B.4 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

Interpret real-world situations as functions in context. The slope of a vertical line is undefined and the slope of a horizontal line is 0. Either of these cases might be considered “no slope.” Thus, the phrase “no slope” should be avoided because it is ambiguous, and “non-existent slope” and “slope of 0” should be distinguished from each other.

The starting point for a function is the first value of the input. Determine the y-intercept of a function. The rate of change is the slope of the interpreted function of the graph. Construct functions to model real-world situations. Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities.
