This Digging Dinosaurs activity & project also includes:

Build a function to solve problems rooted in archeology. A comprehensive set of five lessons presents problems requiring individuals to use functions. The initial lesson asks learners to find the possible number of dinosaurs from a drawing of their legs. As they advance through the different levels, problem situations become progressively more complex until the final lesson requires learners to write rules for both a linear and nonlinear set of data.
