Old Standards PO 4. Translate between different representations of linear equations using symbols, graphs, tables, or written descriptions.

Common Core Standards 8.F.4. Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.

Assignments/Homework: Math is a subject that requires daily practice to build and retain skills and knowledge. As such, your child will have an assignment daily, with the exception of test days. (On a test day, there is no assignment or homework.)
