This Movie Lines lesson plan also includes:
Get in line to buy a movie. Given a table representing the cost of a number of DVDs, pupils plot the points to analyze the relationship. They determine the meaning of the slope and the y-intercept within the context and find values beyond the table. Using a second set of DVD prices, scholars compare the two relationships.
- Have the class research current prices and create linear functions representing them
- Lead a discussion on whether the graph should be continuous or discreet
- The class should be able to find the equation of a line from a table of values
- Includes suggestions for assessments
- Contains reflection questions for the teacher to look back upon the lesson
- The instructions alternate between buying and renting the DVDs, making them slightly confusing
