With the student review vocabulary - Ratio, X-Axis, Y-Axis, Linear Equation,
Review with students the following: A car rental costs $155.00 per day plus $0.25 gas surcharge for every mile driven.
Using the media of students choice, together write a linear equation to represent the cost of renting a car for one day. (y = 155.00 + 0.25g) and then calulate the car rental costs if the driver went 100 miles, 200 miles, and 300 miles in one day.
Graph the rental costs with the number of miles driven on the x axis and the total costs on the y axis.
Once the student is confident have him/her complete the task using the students media of choice.
The student will need to determine the number of miles between their hometown and Miami Florida. This can be done with a Google search. Enter the words "directions from (hometown) to Miami Florida" into the Google search box and the results should appear.
