Constant of Proportionality
We're gonna teach you about "Constant of Proportionality
Dependent or Independent?
Say I didn't tell you how many days the plant had grown. would you know how much the total height is? Exactly! you wouldn't know. Therefor, if you cant have height without days your days would be your independent variable and your height would be the dependent variable.
Rate of Change
First you would multiply 5 by 60 and you would get a total of 300 and put that number into the right column of your graph. You would do the same process every time for every different amount of days you would have.
intro into graph
Now that we know how to spot independent and dependent variables, found the rate of change and made a table graph, its time to make a line graph
So as you can see, our graph goes through the origin so that it can be at a constant rate and that the y-axis is counting by 60's. Our website that we used didn't let us plot our points. But all you have to do to get the plot points is to take your fingers and see where they meet, like a game of battleship! :)

And now you know all about the constant of proportionality. :)
