Drip, Drop, Drip, Drop

Design an experiment to model a leaky faucet and determine the amount of water wasted due to the leak. Middle schoolers graph and write an equation for a line of best fit. They use their derived equation to make predictions about the amount of water that whould be wasted from one leak over a long period of time or the amount wasted by serveral leaks during a specific time period.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
