There are several excellent books that would be most useful. There is one called Algebra Experiments Book I which covers linear functions; I think you can find it in the Dale Seymour catalogue. There are also a book II and one called Linear Functions. The students collect data, plot the points, and analyze the function. They take ownership. Several of the new Algebra texts have similar problems and projects, like the South-Western Series of books.
