If students are unfamiliar with how to create a voicethread, visit the following website which gives clear directions: http://voicethread.com/#home

Learning Standards:

1. Students will be able to calculate slope between 2 points.

2. Students will be able to write an equation between two data points after creating a line of best fit.
