This activity corresponds to CCSS 7.RP.1 and is best used as a station. Students will determine the gas mileage of 7 different cars based on how much gas was used. These correspond to the actual gas mileages of several makes and models of cars, which students will match to their answers. Students love discussing which car they would want based on look and reputation then comparing it to gas mileage.
