Product Description

This is a great hands-on activity for beginning or lower-level algebra students to help them begin to see the difference between linear, quadratic and exponential growth while reinforcing perimeter and area of rectangles.

Students follow directions to cut out rectangles on graph paper, complete t-charts and graphs with information from their rectangles, and finally use the relationships to answer questions.

Students need to have some experience with slope-intercept prior to this lesson and they should be familiar with graphing points from a table.
