I think you might mean "direct variation" or "directly propotionate"

Here's a simple example :

y = x

Notice that, as x gets larger, y gets larger. And, as x gets smaller, y gets smaller. And that's the whole idea. As one side of an equation changes in some direction, the other side changes in the same direction, too.

Pretty simple, huh ????
