Proportional reasoning is critical in 8th grade. When we talk about linear function it is important for the students to understand that the straight line being grade is happening at a constant rate and of course if we start at the origin then we have a true proportional statement. I find that students struggle with linear functions when their understanding of proportional reasoning has not been fully developed.
