Predicting Bridge Strength via Data Analysis (Day 1 of 2)

Unit 3: Linear Functions
Lesson 18 of 20

Objective: SWBAT collect data of number of pennies to number of layers of paper bridges, create a scatter plot, and write a prediction equation to extrapolate the data.

Big Idea: Students use the paper bridge and pennies as a mathematical model of loads on a structure, including dead weight and live weight.
