Students will be able to apply aspects of proportional reasoning including unit rates, graphs, tables, and equations to work a real world problem.

If it doesn't apply, I don't care - heard that before? Well, this lesson applies what students have learned about proportional reasoning!

10 minutes

**Opener: **As students enter the room, they will immediately pick up and begin working on the opener – Instructional Strategy - Process for openers. This method of working and going over the opener lends itself to allow students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, which is **mathematical practice 3**.

**Learning Target: **After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended target is, “I can apply what I know about unit rates and proportional relationships to solve a real world problem.” Students will jot the learning target down in their agendas (our version of a student planner, there is a place to write the learning target for every day).

**Thoughts from Me! **In this lesson, students will be looking for patterns and repeated reasoning, and drawing conclusions (**mathematical practices 7 and 8)**. Using real world problems, students will create graphs (**mathematical practice 4**) and given a graph, students will be able to determine an equation and whether or not the relationship is proportional (**mathematical practice 2**). It will be important that students pay close attention to precision (mathematical practice 6), and use tools (calculator, graph, table) as needed (**mathematical practice 5). **

5 minutes

Instructional Strategy - Table Discussion**: **To summarize this lesson, I will have students have a table discussion on the question: What are all the ways you can identify the constant of proportionality?
