- Answer Key
- Join to access all included materials
A car traveling down a steep hill is the model for this resource. The confusion comes when the elevation, E, is given in terms of distance, d. The distance, d, is the horizontal distance from E. Therefore, the equation, E = 7500 – 250d, is in slope-intercept form and the slope can be read directly. Include this in your class discussion.
- Creates a good model of elevation
- Graph or table not needed for solution
