Stacking Paper Sequel


Finding the Equation of a Line Given Slope and a Point - 5 Stacks of Paper on a Table

Finding the Equation of a Line Given Slope and a Point This 3 Act Math Task is a sequel to the Stacking Paper Real World Math Problem I created a couple weeks back. In the previous task, students were asked "How many stacks of paper will it take to reach the ceiling?" That problem had a sequel that explored the scenario of stacking the paper on a table instead of on the floor in order to see if students understood the concept of the initial value/y-intercept. In this sequel, we will revisit the idea of stacking paper on the table, but take a slightly different approach in order to give students an opportunity to link Finding Equations of a Line Given Slope and a Point to a real world situation. Please note that this is part two of...
