Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU. The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative. 1

Problem 3 Got it? Weight on the moon y varies directly with weight on Earth x. A person who weighs 100 lb on Earth weighs 16.6 lb on the moon. What is an equation that relates weight on earth x and weight on the moon y? What is the graph of this equation?

Be sure to include relevant graph detail: label axes, indicate units on both axes, and use arrows to represent end behavior, as appropriate.  5
