Filling glasses: graphing and comparing

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Look closely at pairs of line graphs. See the relationship between the shape of a glass and the time taken to fill it with juice. Notice that the fluid level rises more quickly in a narrow glass than in a wide glass. Identify the other variables which determine the shape of each line graph. This is one of a series of five activities.
1. Students create and interpret graphs that represent the relationship between quantities and show the rates of change.
2. Students match different shaped vessels with the line graphs representing their filling rates.
