Common Core Math Standards 8.F.A.1 and 8.F.A.3

Common Core Math Standards –  I like to teach these standards at the same time. 

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.1
Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear.
