You're so Dense

Ninth graders explore the density of pennies to determine the year minted.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders collect and analyze data as they investigate the relationship between mass and volume.  Students create a scatter plot of their data and find a linear regression and examine the slope of the line as the relationship between mass and volume.
