Building a Ramp Activity
Distance – Time Graphs:
Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed.

These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step.

It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep.
