Students match linear and nonlinear function graphs to short motion stories that describe the graphs.
Each story describes a walk between home and school at a mixture of constant and nonconstant rates. Students will need to think about the shapes of graphs when speed is increasing, decreasing or staying the same as well as the slopes of the graphs when moving towards or away from the origin.
There are 18 total graphs and stories as well as one extra credit problem asking students to write their own story about a graph. The download includes a poster with keywords for linear and nonlinear graphs, a student response sheet and a complete answer key.
