Big Ideas: The graph of a function is a way to describe the relationship between two variables. In this lesson students are given a graph of a scenario where a boy walks to the store and returns home. Students are asked to use the graph to describe this trip to the store. They must justify their explanations in relation to the graph. Students should understand that based on the variables present in the graph of a function there is a relation between those variables that can be described qualitatively. Special Materials: None
