Big Ideas: Identify the y-intercept and slope from a graph. Write a function in slope-intercept form. This lesson builds on identifying the slope and y-intercept of a linear function on the coordinate plane. The task has students read a situation and write two linear functions from a graph. This builds towards students being able to graph linear functions on their own after reading a situation modeling linear functions. Vocabulary: Slope, y-intercept, slope-intercept form, linear functions
