Admittedly, I’m not backwards planning this summer unit as well as I’d like to. We spend Fridays working on a summative-esque project page. Last week, we used real data to make graphs. This week was supposed to be more of a focus on using linear functions to make predictions, but we ended spending a worthwhile day making a table and then a graph from a situation. (I also wish we’d done something with equations, but that’s for another time).
Photo: Student work. This kiddo was rather stymied because the (correctly scaled) axes made her graph too small to see the change over time. So we worked to redraw the axes (growing by 5 instead of 10).
What do you observe? What do you wonder?
