8th Grade Math Vocabulary
Week 24

The ratio of the change in y to the change in x of a linear relationship.

Rise – The vertical change along the
y-axis of a graph.

Run – The horizontal change along the x-axis of a graph.


A relationship in which exactly one output is assigned to each input.

Input—Output f(x) = 2x-1
1 1
2 3
3 5
Note that output 1 is assigned to input 1, only; output 3 is assigned to input 2, only; and output 5 is assigned to input 3, only.

Nonlinear Function
A function that does not have a constant rate of change (i.e. the same slope). The graph of a nonlinear function is not a straight line.
