This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to interpret distanceĐtime graphs and, in particular, to help you identify students who: interpret distanceĐtime graphs as if they are pictures of situations rather than abstract representations of them; and have difficulty relating speeds to slopes of these graphs.

This is a lesson/assessment tool. There are many resources for teachers. It has detailed lesson plans, ppt, student hand outs/card sets, pre-assessment, and revisited assessment. I like how students are encouraged to match up the graphs with a story and a table. It addresses CCSS 8.F.1 & 8.F.2. The task takes longer than the lesson suggests.
