Friday Fave for January 6

The Friday Fave has a cold nose and a warm heart on this early January day.

This week, we’re featuring Investigating Rate of Change, a simple and fun exploration of the relationship between graphs and equations based on slope.

What makes this activity worthy of Fave status is that the activity is driven throughout by the ideas and examples students bring to the activity.

From the opening screen that encourages creativity….

…to a challenge creator that has students swap devices…

Investigating Rate of Change keeps students’ thinking at the center, as it builds their knowledge of slope relationships in graphs and equations.
