## Reflection: Real World Applications Are x and y Directly or Inversely Proportional? (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Exit Slip

As an application of Direct Variation, there is an online article about Leonardo Da Vinci and how body parts are directly proportional.  If time permits, I assign the students this article to read and 2 problems to work with their table partner.

I demonstrate setting up the proportions to the problems in this video:
