Title: The Pattern of Graphing Linear Equations
Description:
The students will extend the knowledge of algebraic expressions from geometric representations and ultimately graph linear equations with understanding. The students will also develop a better understanding of algebraic expressions by comparing with geometric, tabular, and graphical representations. Students may also acquire a deeper understanding of independent and dependent variables.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (6) 20: Use variables to represent two quantities in a realworld problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. [6EE9]

Title: Travel in the Solar System: Lesson 1
Description:
In this lesson, one of a multipart unit from Illuminations, students consider the amount of time that space travelers must spend on their journey. Students improve their concept of time and distance.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (8) 7: Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. [8EE5]

Title: Travel in the Solar System: Lesson 2
Description:
In this lesson, one of a multipart unit from Illuminations, students consider the amount of time that space travelers need to travel to the four terrestrial planets. Students also think about what kinds of events might occur on Earth while the space travelers are on their journey.

Title: On Fire
Description:
This unit of five lessons, from Illuminations, introduces the components of a firesafe and firewise environment. Students create a firewise location through calculations and measurement of percent slope, defensible space distance and various vegetation separation distances. The unit plan culminates with students designing a firewise property and testing their firewise IQ.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (8) 27: Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept. [8SP3]
