MAFS.8.F.2.5

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.
Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 8
Domain-Subdomain: Functions
Cluster: Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts
Cluster: Use functions to model relationships between quantities. (Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

  • Test Item #: Sample Item 3
  • Question:

    Mary and Kim go bike riding on some trails. Graphs of the functions representing one of their rides are shown, where x is the time, in minutes, and y is the distance, in miles. 

    Select all statements that are true based on the graphs shown.

  • Difficulty: N/A
  • Type: MS: Multiselect

  • Test Item #: Sample Item 4
  • Question:

    Mary and Kim ride their bikes to school each day. Graphs of the functions representing one of their rides are shown, where x is the time, in minutes, and y is the distance, in miles.

    Write a short story about Mary’s bike ride describing the relationship between time and distance. Include information about changes in the behavior of the function and rate of speed using terms such as increasing, constant, and decreasing.

  • Difficulty: N/A
  • Type: OR: Open Response

  • Test Item #: Sample Item 5
  • Question:

    Mary and Kim each take 15 mintues to ride their bikes to school. The graphs of the functions that model their rides are shown, where x is the time, in minutes, and y is the distance, in miles.

    The graphs are divided into time intervals A, B, and C.

    Use the graphs to match each statement with the appropriate person or people.
