Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Similarity, Slope and Lines

Reasoning and Explaining, 6-12

Participants will unpack the connection between similarity, slope, and the graphs of linear functions by doing mathematical tasks, analyzing student thinking, and exploring a computer-based applet. Together, these activities serve as the context for participants to consider strategies to support students' to reason mathematically and learn to use precise language in their explanations.
