In small groups, students will measure the rise and tread of stairs and calculate slope of the stairs. Each student will indicate the perceived ease of the climb. Recorded data will be compared to guidelines for stairs to investigate an application of algebra to construction and safety in the home and public buildings. Dataanalysis and display and student research expand the activity beyond simply calculating slope using the formula.
