Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems. Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
Students will investigate the box office returns and critical acclaim of a set of movies. After gathering their data, they'll graph it on a coordinate plane and look for trends and outliers, and then make a prediction. They'll also create line graphs and use this data to decide if another movie in the series should be made.
Students will work with authentic data to investigate the cost of living across three different cities.
