EXERCISING IN SPACE
'Students will identify a direct variation, solve linear equations, and create tables based on the exercise equipment provided for astronauts on long duration missions on the International Space Station (ISS) in order to maintain their fitness to perform mission objectives and to return to Earth without serious health complications.
- identify direct variation from ordered pairs by calculating the constant of variation;
- calculate slope from two points using the slope formula;
- determine independent and dependent variables;
- solve linear equations; and
- create tables.'
