Product Description
What happens when the population becomes too big to support with our current food supply? We eat insects!

Students need prior knowledge of linear functions. They need to be able to find slopes and y-intercepts and use them to write linear functions. They should also be able to graph data from a table. In addition, this activity asks that they make predictions using their equations.

I use this activity as a way to engage students in the content after explicitly teaching linear functions. They are instantly excited about the topic and we have rich class discussions while reading the article. It is appropriately challenging for my 9th grade Algebra 1 students, so I typically let them work in small groups and guide them through the task.

If you’d like a printable PDF of the article, please email me at ApplicableAlgebra@gmail.com.
