Linear Graphs Using Proportions and Rates

Using a TI-73 or other similar graphing calculator middle school math majors investigate the linear relationship of equivalent proportions. After a brief introduction by the teacher, class members participate in a timed pair share activity using an included worksheet as their guide. They get independent practice by examining the proportional measures within a circle. Finally, they complete a homework assignment on the rate of change. For all of these, there is a worksheet provided. You can easily implement this lesson without the calculators as well.

I would truly be lost without Lesson Planet! Although I have been in the classroom for over 25 years, I am very challenged by the need to obtain English-language student materials here in Estonia where I am the International Teacher for an Estonian public school. These materials are excellent, and well suited to ELL/ESL students. Especially, I can find both primary materials AND more sophisticated lessons - Math here, for instance, is quite advanced and I use materials from upper grades in addition to elementary math materials. Thank Goodness for Lesson Planet!|
