Beginning Rates of Change
Giddayup! How can we represent how far a horse can trot within a certain amount of time? Show it on a graph! After examining this example, math classes crate their own "stories" for different tables of time and distance data, and then address several more word problems in which rates are represented by data in tables and on graphs.
