2. Represent a relationship between two quantities and determine whether the two quantities are related proportionally.

a. Use equivalent ratios displayed in a table or in a graph of the relationship in the coordinate plane to determine whether a relationship between two quantities is proportional.

b. Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) and express the proportional relationship using multiple representations including tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions.

c. Explain in context the meaning of a point (x,y) on the graph of a proportional relationship, with special attention to the points (0,0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate.

Title: Proportional Oh No!

In this small group activity, the students will be playing a game of "Oh No!" to practice determining proportional relationships. They take turns pulling a card from a bag and determining if the relationship on the card is proportional or not. If it is, they get to keep the card. If it isn't, they have to put all of their cards back. The winner is the person with the most cards at the end of the game.

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
