Linear Relationships in the Real World

Socially-based Curriculum Unit

This unit was developed for Grade 9 Principles of Mathematics (MPM1D). Relationships exist in the world all around us and it is useful to be able to represent them in a variety of ways including verbal and written descriptions, table of values, and graphs.  Students will not only gain experience identifying and forming opinions about relationships between two variables, they will gain analytical skills to discuss cause and effect and learn how to quantify such using data.  Students will use line graphs and scatter plots to explore real world relationships related to contemporary social issues and make future predictions based on overall trends in the data.
