Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes as your classmates make presentations about the relationship between the speed and the graph of their racers.


As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • What does a point on the graph represent?
  • Explain how this line on the graph represents this racer’s race.
  • Which racer won the race? How is this shown on the graph?
  • What is the independent variable in this situation?
  • How did you choose the scale for your axis?
