Lesson created by Stephen Simmonsas part of the IM SMART Project. This project seeks to integrate Mathematics and Science at Milby High School through the study, and building of, alternative fuel vehicles.
Students will play the interactive game "Lemonade Stand" in order to make correlations between sales of lemonade and factors such as temperature, weather conditions, price, and advertising. Students will be introduced to the concept of independent and dependent variables in experiments.
Students, working in teams of 3-4, are to play the game " Lemonade Stand" and record your score in the enrichment section. All game instructions are provided at the "Lemonade Stand" home page.
