SO, your students get the idea of equations. And they know how to find a table of values. And they even know how to make a graph given an equation or a table.
BUT do they really see the connection between all these representations for a linear relationship?
NOW, you and your students can create a cube that shows the multiple representations. This activity will make those connections real. Having a tangible model that ties it all together with one scenario, uniquely chosen by the student, will make this concept “stick.”
AND the final projects can be displayed on a bulletin board or in a display case.
