Filling glasses: create the right graph

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Look closely at some line graphs. Examine 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. Choose both sections of a line graph representing the filling rate of a glass shape. This learning object is one in a series of five objects.
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.
