A. Choose TWO of the following graphs. Create a story that describes each of the graphs (label A-F). Make sure that you identify and describe the two variables (Distance from Home (y) and Time (x)). Use appropriate math vocabulary.

B. Write a short description of how the two stories you wrote are similar/different based on the graphs you chose!

Graph E- Fred went on vacation to Indiana, pretty slow. He stayed there in the hotel for a very long time, and then he came back home pretty fast. The End.

Graph D- George went on a walk, really really, slow. Then he went a little bit faster. Then, he wanted to go to his friend’s house, so he ran to his friend’s house. The End.

They both have two people going away from their house. As the time increased, the distance away from their houses increased. (Except for Fred at the end)

Graph A: Bob was walking to the park. He started walking quickly as time inecreased, and his distance from home increased quickly. Then later he got tired so he walked slower. He was at a very slow pace at the end. But he always got farther from home as time increased.

Graph E: Joe was going to school. He started walking and got to school. In the beginning, as time increased he got farther from home. While he was at school he didn’t go anywhere farther away. As time increased there his distance from home stayed the same. Later, when school ended, he walked back home. As time increased he got closer to home.

Graph A and E are different because in graph A there is always a positive correlation, and in graph E first there is a positive correlation, then it stayed the same, then there was a negative correlation. They are the same because in both of them there was a postive correlation where as time increased, they got farther from home, except in graph E it wasn’t always positive correlation.

(Graph B)

A boy was walking to school. Then he realized that he forgot his pencil, and started walking back home. Halfway back home from where he was before, he found his pencil in his nose and started walking back to school.

(Graph E)

Monkey was running a race that started from his house. He ran more than halfway to the end, and fell asleep. When he woke up, he realized that he needed to catch up, but he wasn’t paying attention to which way was the start. He ran slightly faster than the beginning, and then realized that he ran back to his house.

These two are similar because they both have the same variables that are both on the same axis (y: distance from home x:time.) They are also similar because they both have a positive correlation in the beginning. A third similarity is that they both start with a positive correlation, and then go to a negative.

The difference is that graph b goes back up again, but graph

e does not. Graph E also has a flat amount if time, whereas Graph b doesn’t.

A. I chose graph c and e. Graph e story: a kid named somebody walked home from school. When he was half way home he tripped on a piece of grass and broke his leg. He lay there for a while. Then he got up and realized he left his iPad at school and went back to the school.

Graph e story: a kid named someone tried to walk home but by doing cartwheels. This took someone very long. Then he cut his hand on the sidewalk. He took some time putting on his favorite hello kitty band aid. Finally he walked home but not doing cartwheels so he could get home faster.

B. The stories are similar because both graphs stopped on the y-axis but kept increasing on the x-axis.

A1: (This is for graph “E”) Al was walking to the Sports Shop. The Sports Shop was a mile from Al’s house. It took Al 30 minutes to walk ½ a mile, and then he thought that he forgot his wallet. So he spent 10 minutes searching through the contents of his string backpack. Once he was 100% sure that he had it, he kept walking another ½ mile to the sports shop. When he arrived he got some new baseballs.

A2: (This is for graph “D”) Sapphire was going to the mall to meet some of her friends for hot chocolate and donuts. Since it was very windy out, it took her a little bit longer than usual to get there. At first, it took her 22 minutes to walk ⅓ a mile. Then the wind slowed down a bit, and she made better time the next third. Then she realized that she was going to be late, and she hurried off to the mall to make sure that the donut shop didn’t run out of mini marshmallows for her hot chocolate.

B: My stories are pretty different. In A1, Al stopped completely-and didn’t move for a good 10 minutes, so that made the x-axis, Time increase while the y-axis, Distance From Home stayed put. Though, in A2, Sapphire never stopped moving, but her pace kept increasing. So as the Distance From Home increased, Time increased for A2.

F. Mike is moving to New York now he is living in Chicago. He is using his big truck to move. As he’s driving he decides to take a brake at a motel and sleeps through the night until morning. Then he starts driving again until he gets to New York.

E. Matt is going to his friend’s house to have a sleep over. He walks to his friend’s house hauling all his stuff there. When Matt gets to his friend’s house they start playing video games his friend’s mom tells Matt and his friend to go and sleep so they do. In the morning it was raining so they called Matt’s mom to pick him up and then they got home.

E : Mr. Claverson started driving to work he drove for about 20 minutes he reached a distance of 35 miles in those 20 minutes, then his car broke down and be he stopped for about another 15 minutes, finally he got his car started up again, and then he drove about another 28 miles in 15 minutes!

B : Ms. Druslii started driving to work she drove for about 10 minutes and then decided to turn around and go back to the gas station, it took her 5 minutes, she got there and got her car’s gas full to the brim in less than a minute! She then got back on her route and started driving back to work for 7 more minutes!

Both of my stories have the variable of time and distance in them! As time past by the further car got from our home!

B. A pet store at the beginning of the day had no dogs then more dogs had arrived one after another until they were full and out of space. As time passed customers came and bought dogs but eventually customers stopped coming and buying dogs. Then more dogs were coming into the pet shop agin but faster then they were at the beginning of the day. The Variable on the x axis is time and on the y axis is amount of dogs.

E. At 9:00 a.m. People started to arrive at the pool once 4 hours had passed the pool was full and no one else was allowed in. Not a single person had left until the last hour that the pool was open. Then once the pool closed everyone was gone. The variable on the x axis is time and on the y axis is number of people.

[Graph C]

Ana was in a city and she was driving to her home. She stopped on the way to pick something up from a friend’s house. Ana was still a ways away from home. Then resumed her journey and after some time, she made it home.

[Graph D]

Irene was walking home from school. After a while, she looked at her watch and realized she had an activity soon, so Irene started jogging. When she checked her watch again, she started running and made it home.

Similarities:

1. The variables are the same.

2. The variables are on the same axises.

3. Both variables increase during the story.

Differences:

1. In one story, one variable stops changing and the resumes changing again.

B. Sammy ran away from his home. Then he went back halfway but then ran back to same spot he turned around at.

F. George got a toy. He played with it for a while. Then he got another toy and played with that one for a while.

They are different because one has a graph that goes up, down, up and the other is like stairs. Plus one has a flat part and the other doesn’t.

C.Bob took a taxi to the airport. When he got there he had to wait 10 minutes. He got on the plane and went to Colorado.

B. Bill wanted to go to Olive Garden. When he got there the parking lot was full. He headed home. When he got half way home He decided to go to Vuccinos ( which was right next door.) So he drove back.
