double number line diagrams
A graphic diagram that shows a proportional relationship between two quantities.
equivalent ratios
Ratios that have the same value.
data gaps
A part series of observations, measurements, facts, or information that is lacking data.
independent variable
A variable whose variation does not depend on that of another.
mean

symmetry
