In this graphing lab activity, students will be using samples of ordinary poster board with uniform thickness to determine the mass and area area of each. This data is placed on a graph. Using the graph, students will then be able to find the unknown area of an irregularly shaped sample of poster board. This is an activity that can be used to teach basic graphing skills as well as the use of basic pieces of lab equipment - the ruler and the balance.

Materials needed: Balance, 4 samples of poster board of regular shape, 1 irregular sample, graph paper, ruler, pencil.
