Description:

This complete lesson plan requires students to measure the length and width of a rectangle using both standard and non-standard units of measure, such as pennies, beads, etc. As students graph the ordered pairs, they discover that the ratio of length to width of a rectangle is constant, in spite of the units. This leads to the definition of a linear function and to the rule that relates the dimensions of this rectangle. An activity sheet and questions for class discussion are included.
