Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ graphs and comparisons.


As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did the table help you make a graph of the situation?
  • How does the line change as the sales tax changes in the different graphs? Can you explain the change?
  • Why did you multiply by 1 plus the sale tax?
  • Does your solution make sense in this situation?
  • Could you have predicted what the graph would look like before you made it? How?
  • Why do you think you found those similarities between the graphs?
  • Why do you think you found those differences between the graphs?
  • Are there any conclusions you can make based on comparing the graphs?
