ab: From the introduction: Activities that use linear data as a model will help
students understand linear functions. In this activity, students
collect data and make connections to concepts used in geometry and
measurement. Rather than teaching introductory algebra and geometry,
this activity is intended to serve as a culminating task to reinforce
material already learned.
