## Camera Case & Pads of Paper Weigh In

3 Act Math With Partial Variation Linear Relations Here's another task that is a good next step once you've tackled the Tech Weigh In 3 act math task that covers direct and partial variation linear relations. This task gives students another chance to get some exposure to partial variation linear relations and could provide an opportunity for the teacher to begin consolidating the topic by moving towards some more abstract concepts like the slope formula and finding linear equations given two points. Similar tasks to check out would be Stacking Paper, Stacking Paper Sequel and Thick Stacks. Special thanks to Justin Levack again for coming up with the "weigh in" idea and pushing me to actually record this with him when we are all runni...

## Thick Stacks

Finding the Equation of a Line Given Two Points This 3 Act Math Task is yet another sequel to the Stacking Paper and Stacking Paper - Sequel 3 Act Math Tasks where we look at linear relations with respect to a real world situation involving packages of paper stacked into a tower. While the original task begins with a direct variation requiring only basic proportional reasoning skills, the previous sequel had students looking at a partial variation linear relation with an initial value being the height of a table and were required to use the thickness of one package of paper (slope) and the height of the stack on a table (a point) to determine the height of the table. In this task, students are given two stacks of paper (thus two ...
