Introduction

Lesson Plan 1: Be Direct - Oil Spills on Land
peggy with group This lesson teaches students about direct variation by allowing them to explore a simulated oil spill using toilet paper tissues (to represent land) and drops of vegetable oil (to simulate a volume of oil). This lesson plan is based on the activity used by teacher Peggy Lynn in Part I of the Workshop 7 video.
Lesson Plan 2: Very Varied - Inverse Variation
7lp1b_girljar.jpg This lesson teaches students about inverse variation by exploring the relationship between the heights of a fixed amount of water poured into cylindrical containers of different sizes as compared to the area of the containers' bases. This lesson plan is based on the activity used by teacher Peggy Lynn in Part II of the Workshop 7 video.
