Author:Susan Boone
Description: Students use the Internet to search for housing prices in Houston, Texas, (the location can be changed to accommodate any location) and compare the prices to the number of square feet found in the living area of a house. A linear equation is derived from these data on a coordinate plane using the "best-fit" method. Using information from the graph of the data and the equations of the function, students answer questions about housing prices.
