This water park project requires students to create linear relationships using slopes, y-intercepts, graphs, and equations. Students love creating their water parks. It is a great way to check their understanding as they use different strategies to place their attractions and find the equation for them. Students enjoy looking at their peers' parks. This creates great math conversations as they critique each other. This project is best used once they have a good understanding of proportional relationships. They will need to find points and slope as well as graph and write equations in slope intercept form.
This project was designed to go in an interactive student notebook. After printing the pages front to back it can be folded in half and put inside their notebook. I have them put graph paper on the other page to design their water park.
