Goals for CMP3 Some Management Issues
Linear Relationships Recognize problem situations in which two variables have a linear relationship.
- Odentify and describe the patterns of change between the independent and dependent variables for linear relationships represented by tables, graphs, equations, or contextual settings
- Construct tables, graphs, and symbolic equations taht represent linear relationships
- Identify the rate of change between two variables and the x- and y-intercepts from graphs, tables, and equations that represent linear relationships.
- Translate information about linear relationships given in a contextual setting, a table, a graph, or an equation to one of the other forms
- Write equations that represent linear relationships given specific pieces of information, and describe what information the variables and numbers represent
- Make a connection between slope as a ratio of vertical distance to horizontal distance between two points on a line and the rate of change between two variables that have a linear relationship
- Recognize that y = mx represents a proportional relationship
- Solve problems and make decisions about linear relationships using information given in tables, graphs, and equations
Equivalence Understand that the equality sign indicates that two expressions are equivlent.
- Recognize that the equation y = mx + b represents a linear relationship and means that mx + b b is an expression equivalent to y
- Recognize that linear equations is one unknown, k = mx + b or y = m(t) + b/e>, where k,t,m and b are constants, area special cases of the equation y = mx + b
- Recognize that finding the missing value of one of the variables in a linear relationship, y = mx + b, is the same as finding a missing coordinate of a point (x, y) that lies on the graph of a relationship
