Challenge students and review multiple standards with this activity covering multiple topics.

Students will read a story about Leo the Alien, answer questions, and create a graph. The activity addresses the following standards:
Scientific Notation
Graphing Contextual Events
Distance, Rate, and Time
Unit Price / Better Buy

Great activity for partner work too!

Once completed, it's great to get students to present their answers. You can also ask further questions about the graph they create, such as how the different slopes relate to the story.

This is a 2 page handout with an answer key in PDF format.

Common Core Standards referenced:

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.

Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used.

Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways.

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.
