This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 10, Unit 5, Grade 8. The purpose of this activity is to give students more exposure to working with a situation that can be modeled with a piecewise linear function. Here, the situation has already been modeled and students must calculate the rate of change for the different pieces of the model and interpret it in the context. A main discussion point should be around what the different rates of change mean in the situation and connecting features of the graph to the events in the context.
