How many more people?

Today's objective/outcome was to look at Rate of Change. You can view all of the outcomes for the Small World unit by looking at the learning outcomes document.

From HW2, some students mentioned that from ages 3 to 6, there was a "steady" increase in the boys' heights (problem #2). Other people mentioned the words "linear", "constant growth", "consistant growth", and "slope".

We then looked at the population graphs from Thursdays. We were able to calculate the average increase in population per year. Can you do this?

Does this "average increase in population per year" relate to "rate of change"?

Do you have any comments, suggestions, or concerns about the class so far? If so, add a comment to this post.

Homework due Monday is HW3. Our grace period is up. I will start enforcing the homework policy, the tardy policy, and the ID policy.
