Why Lesson Planet?
Math whizzes model linear data in a variety of settings that range from the cost of car repairs, to bike jumps, to drug dosages. Learners construct scatterplots, interpret data points, and trends. They figure out and write linear equations that fit the situations. The lesson plan comes with links to activity sheets to be used in class.
- Activity 1: Oil Changes and Engine Repair
- Activity 2: Bike Weights and Jump Heights
- Activity 3: Weights And Drug Doses
- Activity 4: Winning Times for the Women's Olympic 400-Meter Freestyle Swim
