  • How does an artist find the right canvas to express themselves?
  • How does your bill relate to the number of songs you download?
  • When can I get my driver’s license?
  • What happens to my body when I work out?

  • A longer canvas means more area to work with.
  • Owning more of the latest hits comes at a price.

  • Flamingos fly fast. You can use a formula to predict how far they will travel, and how long it will take.
  • We can show low they can fly, how high, and everything in between.
  • In this unit you’ll see variables with a few different kinds of linear relationships. You’ll get to practice turning ideas into words, words into symbols, and symbols into answers.
