Non-Linear Functions Skittles Lab

Unit 5: Functions
Lesson 16 of 30

Objective: SWBAT distinguish between linear graphs and non-linear graphs to explain the difference between a constant rate of change vs. a ratio of change.

Big Idea: Use Skittles to demonstrate a non-linear graph and discuss properties of the activity that made it non-linear.
