Algebraic Reasoning & Algebra

7.A.1.1
Describe that the relationship between two variables, x and y, is proportional if it can be expressed in the form y/x = kx; distinguish proportional relationships from other relationships, including inversely proportional relationships (xy = k or y = k/x).


7.A.1.2
Recognize that the graph of a proportional relationship is a line through the origin and the coordinate (1,r), where both r and the slope are the unit rate (constant of proportionality, k).

7.A.2.1
Represent proportional relationships with tables, verbal descriptions, symbols, and graphs; translate from one representation to another. Determine and compare the unit rate (constant of proportionality, slope, or rate of change) given any of these representations.
