This project was designed for an Algebra 1 online course. The course still is designed to teach slope, even though this standard is now technically taught in the 7th and/or 8th grade. The intent was to design a project to get students to see slope in a different manner, using percent grade change of hiking paths.
The purpose of this activity is for students to use their developed knowledge and creativity to create their own system of linear inequalities. Students also collaborate in an online discussion, where they have the opportunity to graph their classmates’ systems and share what they’ve learned.
