This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 9, Unit 5, Grade 8. The purpose of this activity is for students to determine if a given set of data can be modeled by a linear function. Students first view a set of pictures and data for the length of a shadow at 0, 20, and 60 minutes. Then, they make a prediction about how long a shadow will be after 95 minutes. Students then compare their estimate with the actual length of the shadow and make conclusions about the model they used to make their estimate.
