7.A.2.1 Represent proportional relationships with tables, verbal descriptions, symbols, and graphs; translate from one representation to another. Determine and compare the unit rate (constant of proportionality, slope, or rate of change) given any of these representations.
In a Nutshell
Proportional relationships can be represented in a variety of ways. Each representation can translate from one representation to another. Students should be able determine the correspondence between the different representations and translate from one representation to another. Using the different representations, students should be able to determine and compare the unit rate
Student Actions

Teacher Actions

Use and connect the mathematical representations of proportional relationships to analyze the relationship to determine the unit rate.

 Implement tasks that allow students to represent proportional relationships in a variety of ways and decide which representations to use in making sense of the problems.

Use and connect representations of proportions to students corresponding table, verbal description, symbol or graph.

Pose purposeful questions about different representations of proportional relationships.
