The Empire State Building is on fire with over 1000 victims trapped inside! Students will eagerly work to determine how long it will take Swag Man and Agent Mustache to save them all! Each superhero saves an initial number of people and then they each save people at a different rate. Students must write an equation that represents each and use the equations to figure out when they save the same number of people.
Two cooperative learning ideas are included to bolster engagement even higher!
