Heart Rate Monitoring

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

In this task, students are asked to draw a graph that represents heart rate as a function of time from a verbal description of that function. Then they use the graph to draw conclusions about the context, for instance they have to understand that a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute occurs when the graph is above the line. Students who work together on this task will benefit from discussing and comparing their graphs. A good introduction into this activity would even be a self-experiment, where students take their own pulse and then do jumping jacks and take their pulse again.
