Thirst Dilemma (Drinking in the Desert)

Ninth graders explore linear functions.  In this Algebra I lesson plan, 9th graders collect and analyze date as they investigate the question of how long will water last if you are trapped in a desert.    Students create scatterplots of their data, examine the patterns, and use the data to make predictions.
