This worksheet was developed to be completed through interactive lecture. Two scenarios are presented in which there is a given amount of money and it is to be used to buy two kinds of candy. The idea is to spend all of the money and not receive change. The students study a table showing the amount of one of the candies purchased as it relates to how much of the other candy is purchased. The data is graphed, and slope is found from the graph and related to the numbers in the table.
Finally, the students choose from two new scenarios, tabulate, graph, and determine the slope of the function.
