Students will grow corn stalks while collecting data. This data will be used to write a linear function, using appropriate domain and range, in point-slope form, slope-intercept form and function notation. Statistics come in to play when students find the linear regression equation that models their data and use that information to discuss interpolation vs. extrapolation as well as residuals. The lab is set up in steps, making it possible to focus only on functions or use of the entire lab. This lab can be completed over a large time frame, using spare class minutes here and there while having an ongoing lesson always on hand.
