This week we are continuing our investigation of linear relationships. This topic is an 8th grade standard. Students have been learning about proportional relationships for many years now. But the question we are studying this unit is, “What if there is another pattern occurring in a relationship?”
We started by solving a real life problem posed by the Dominos (pizza) website. The website only told you the final cost of a pizza after you already selected the number of toppings. Students figured out how to find the price of a medium pizza with no toppings and the price per topping.
