Course Level/Topic: Beginning Algebra/Rates and Slope

Purpose: Students use the concept of the rate of depreciation in a real world situation to investigate the relationship between rate and slope. Learning Goals:- Identify that slope of a line corresponds to a unit rate.
- Convert real world data to points on a line.
- Determine the equation of a line from its graph.
- Using the equation of a graph, solve for both independent and dependent values in a real world setting.

- Determining the rate of change given two values
- Graphing a line given two points
- Finding the slope of a line given two points
- Finding the equation of the line given the slope and y-intercept
