### Mathematics

MGSE8.EE.7

Solve linear equations in one variable.

MGSE8.F.1

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.

MGSE8.F.4

Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (*x,y*) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.

MGSE9-12.G.GPE.6

Find the point on a directed line segment between two given points that partitions the segment in a given ratio.
