PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Harnessing the energy my students come in with right before break, I have created a one-period project in which they are going to create a linear equation related to a Thanksgiving meal. It is sometimes hard for students to create their own equations, but I am hoping that this scaffolded project will be something we can reference for the rest of our linear equations unit!

The assignment sheet takes students through some quick new vocab related to economics (definitions included) and provides a basic framework for the equation they will create. On the back, there are two bubbles in which students can brainstorm base costs and marginal costs before creating their equation.

Next, students need to use a chart to find output for 5 different number of guests. I have my students graph these five points on a seperate sheet of graph paper!
