What we like about this task

  • Mathematically:
    • Uses real-world data for students to create a model
    • Gives students a video model, a table of the data, and a scatterplot to help them see the connections between them
    • Requires students to critique the reasoning of others (MP.3)
  • In the classroom:
    • Provides an engaging topic that could be physically modeled by students
    • Offers scaffolding to assist students in choosing models
    • Can be set up to modify based on earlier student answers so that the questioning is more dynamic
