Monopoly


In the board game, Monopoly, does a property’s distance from GO correlate to its rent when you land on it? Using Brian’s spread sheet (list of properties, distance from GO, rent and rent with properties), students create scatter plots.  They graph points, draw lines of best fit, find average (X ,Y) values, judge outliers, and make predictions about new properties. As the teacher, you can choose to assign this activity to be done by hand or to be completed with the tools and skills of manipulating Excel spreadsheets.   (Question 9 on the activity uses property names that are related to our room and school in Newton. You can easily change the document to relate to your room and school.) 

For Adventurer member we have an editable Word docx of the activity, an Excel sheet for students, an Excel sheet for teachers, and solutions for the activity.
