This is a project-based assessment over linear functions. The student is given a continuous linear situation such as "A pool contains 300 gallons and is being filled at a rate of 100 gallons per hour". The student separates their poster board (appr. 17 x 22) into 4 quadrants and then proceeds to identify the variables, the rate of change, the starting value and a function rule. They continue on by finding and completing a table of values and a graph. Finally, they answer 4 questions such as "how much water will be in the pool after 3 hours?" or "what does the slope in this situation represent?" on the back using complete sentences.
Project can be completed in one class period. Complete directions for the student are included as well as a grading rubric, a key (for the 4 questions), quadrant one graph paper, and directions (including 2 completed student examples) for the teacher. To see a completed student example, please download the preview. There are 6 different scenarios in total, all continuous. 12 pages total.
