## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Graphs of Proportional Relationships - What are the two important characteristics? - Section 3: Summary + Homework

The table discussion gave me great insight into students that got the big idea of the lesson and those that did not.  A few students in my advanced class actually could not wrap their brain around the fact that it was that simple.  In fact, I had to actually go ahead in that class and show my truly advanced kids what a linear but not proportional relationship looks like when graphed, and what the meaning of the y-intercept is.
