### Graphing Running

In this lesson students will mathematically visualize their running by graphing it. The lesson focuses on comparing linear and nonlinear progressions (constant vs. variable rate of change) as well as simply reading graphs and interpreting what they are showing you and even some prediction.

### The Dangers of Credit Cards

7.NS.1,2,3 Students will fictitiously shop with a credit card and use integers to discover why credit cards can be dangerous.
