    From these site, the one thing that I have learned is that I need to be ready for what kids might answer in order to help them. When offering task I need be more prepared. However it is somewhat hard because 8th graders try to provide the “I don’t know” answer – part of this is due to previous classes allowing them to work in this manner.

    One way I could incorporate this in to my class is for them to represent this on a graph. This could then lead to slope, rate, and scale factor. A table could also be made which students would then be able to see the relationship between the two. Linear relationship is what we are working on currently and this would be a good task to begin with since it is simple.
