Interpret The Rate of Change /Slope in the Context of Everyday Life
Find slope all around us and calculate the rate of change during this video that uses real-life situations. Your learners will start by creating a table to see how each change creates the pieces of slope. Plug that slope into your equation with the y-intercept and see if your mathematicians can translate it onto a graph.

Interpret the Rate of Change (Slope) within the Context of Everyday Life
With math all around us, your learners will see they can create an equation to model different situations. From fundraising to a cell phone plan, your mathematicians can find the starting point b, plug in the rate of change m, and create a slope-intercept equation they can use to depict their event.
