NUMB3RS Activity: Up to Speed

Students explore traffic flow theory.  In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate a very basic traffic flow model that predicts the location of a single vehicle in a line of tragic.  Students use a spreadsheet to model acceleration, speed, and distance of a moving vehicle.

Melanie B.
I have found some wonderful resources to use with my students through Lesson Planet. I am a former public school teacher who has taken on a private home school in order to meet the needs of those students who are not being served properly in the public school setting. I want to shift the focus from standardized tests back to LEARNING.
