Students will make a summer schedule with set amounts of days between each activities and find out how often they will meet up with friends who do the same activity. Students are then given an amount of 2 or more supplies and instructed to determine the greatest amount of equal “packs” they could make.

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.
