1 Do Now
Post the question "I run 1/2 a mile in 15 minutes how far do I run in one hour? What would be an equation for this relationship?"
Students watch the video and then answer the question in the Google Classroom Stream. Students must also respond to each other in Google Classroom!
2 Mini Lesson
Go over the questions from the video. Given I run 1/2 of a mile in 1/8 of an hour, how far do I run in one hour? Find the unit rate. Make a table for 5 hours. Show how to find the equation and then graph it. Discuss that a proportional relationship is a straight line through the origin.
Students type notes directly in their Google Slides presentation that was posted in Google Classroom.

Ratios And Proportional Relationships
Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.
Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.
Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.
Represent proportional relationships by equations. For example, if total cost t is proportional to the number n of items purchased at a constant price p, the relationship between the total cost and the number of items can be expressed as t = pn.
Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate.
