Description: Students will watch videos of roller coasters and attempt to hypothesize how long it would to take for two roller coasters to crash into each other if they were overlapping. Students will utilize the concepts of Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, Slope, and Y-Intercept to accomplish this.

7.RP.1,2 Students will love to play the role of the detective in this lesson as they use their rates/slope/linear equations skills to solve the mystery of who the thief is.

In this lesson students will analyze and create mathematical sequences and number patterns and then create visual representations of them. Students will learn that patterns that occur naturally in nature and ones that are manmade have a mathematical underlying to them.
