Can you graph your story? Keep your classes interested by challenging them to graph a scenario and interpret the meaning of an intersection.

##### Instructional Ideas

• Use as an introduction to linear systems
• Extend example one by asking how the graph would change if one person was walking faster or slower and how it affects the intersection point
• Write a description about each intersection point using context and specific units and measures
##### Classroom Considerations

• Using stairs may reinforce the common misconception that a line with a negative slope means a person is walking downhill; front load the concept of a distance vs. time graph to rectify this problem
##### Pros

• Well-designed lesson with introduction and conclusion activity
• All handouts and keys are included

• None
