PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who can eat more hot dogs: Jabba the Hut or Chewbacca? This particular problem is a great intro for students in comparing functions represented in different ways. Both functions have a y-intercept of 0, so only the rates of change must be compared to analyze these functions and determine who wins the contest. Students must find rates of change in a graph and equation to project how many hot dogs each Star Wars character can eat in 10 minutes.

At the end of this problem, students are challenged to revise one of the functions to change the outcome.
