Access Point #: MAFS.912.F-LE.1.AP.2a

Select the graph, the description of a relationship or two input-output pairs of linear functions.

Essential Understandings


  • Indicate the point on a line that crosses the y-axis.
  • Describe the rate of change qualitatively (e.g., steep = rapid rate of change).
  • Identify coordinates (points) on a graph.
  • Match the graph, description or point to the linear function.
  • Interpret/define a line graph with coordinates for multiple points.
  • Understand the following concepts and vocabulary: x-axis, y-axis, x-intercept, y-intercept, line, rise, fall, slope, rate of change.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.F-LE.1.AP.2a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 07/14
Cluster: Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems. (Algebra 1 - Supporting Cluster) (Algebra 2 - Supporting 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.
