    CCSS.Math.Practice.MP5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

    Use appropriate tools strategically.

    CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

    Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.

    CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

    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.
