This is a high-interest story problem in which students compare equations that represent the bank accounts of three superheroes. They must analyze the different features of the functions to determine whether each account changes at a linear or nonlinear rate and which accumulates the most money!
Standardized tests will often give students several equations, and they have to determine which are linear and which are non linear. This problem provides a context that will help students to understand this type of problem better and also make it more fun!
This problem is also formatted for two great cooperative learning structures: Round Robin and Random Teacher, which are explained in the Teacher Instructions.
