Subject: Re: Graphs

I would encourage you to look through old issues of The Mathematics Teacher publication produced by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. There are always "real world" examples of different graphs. There was a great one on "The Human Chain" experiment. There was also one on weights of alligators that turns out to model a cubic equation. You might want to go to www.enc.org. The site can be overwhelming, but the search engine is pretty good in locating information about a specific topic. There is also a publication that is included in the Dale Seymour catalogue called Algebra Experiments Book II (non-linear experiments). -Claudia, for the T2T service
