Mathematics
 Standard 8.Understands and applies basic and advanced properties of functions and algebra
  Level III [Grade 6-8]
   Benchmark 7
Understands special values (e.g., minimum and maximum values, x- and y-intercepts, slope, constant ratio or difference) of patterns, relationships, and functions
    Knowledge/skill statement 2
Understands the concept of slope
K(ME,222;PE,31)
    
Common Core Reference:
    8.EE.6, HS.F-LE.5,  HS.F-IF.7 , HS.S-ID.7
8.EE.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the
equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.

HS.F-LE.5 Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.

HS.F-IF.7 Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.

HS.S-ID.7   Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.
