After watching the video and reviewing the definitions from the book, write down the important information in your notebook. Next, write how you would explain the concept of direct variation to your mom. How does it relate to slope, ratios, rates, and proportions? Write at least 3 sentences detailing your explanation.

Explain your reasoning for whether the ratio table below represents direction variation. Use specific examples in your argument.

Watch the next few videos to get a better feel of direct variation and how it applies to real world situations. If you're feeling extremely confident about it, move on. If not, just watch. They're not very long.

Now let's determine if a ratio table represents direct variation. Remember, a ratio table is just a collection of coordinate (x,y) values that make up a line on a graph. But first, what are some defining characteristics of a line that represents direct variation?

We can tell if a table represents direct variation if the slope is the same between all the points. You can also tell by choosing two points and making them proportional to each other. If they reduce to the same number, they represent direct variation! Try the following to test your skills!

Your distance (d) from lightning varies directly with the time (t) it takes you to hear thunder. If you hear thunder 10 seconds after you see the lightening, you are about 2 miles from the lightning.

Write a direct variation equation for the relationship between time (t) and distance (d).

A recipe for 3 dozen corn muffins calls for 2 cups of flour. The number of muffins (m) varies directly with the amount of flour (f) you use.

Write a direct variation equation for the relationship between the number of cups of flour (f) and how many muffins (m) it would make.
