## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Coordinate Grid (Day 3) - Section 2: Coordinate Grid and Ratio Tables

I used this lesson to teach the students about using the ratio table to graph the points on the grid.  I followed this part of the lesson, using all the questions, and my students got it! They were able to answer all the questions including the prediction question about what will happen to the graph when we change the table around.  It was amazing!  My students are very low in ability so I took them through step-by-step on how to get the information from the table to the grid.  I even spoke to them about how this connects to Algebra where they will be finding the equation of the line. I gave them some helpful hints when it came to understanding the x and y from the table.  I used language like this number goes in:  Independent variable and what comes out:  dependent variable.  I also explained to them that there will be times that the table may show different variables ie: m and n, s and t. These variables still represent our ordered pair (x and y).

This part of the lesson was awesome!  It was thrilling to see them so very successful.
