Growth and Change Thematic Assessment Spark Video Examples
This video also gives detailed answers to the questions and analyzes the events well. The two graphs featured in these videos are different--this is due to different historical interpretations of the same events.

I am very pleased with the results of this assessment. Many groups surprised me with their knowledge of history and their knowledge of math--some groups used the terms "independent variable" and "dependent variable" when discussing their graphs--they were able to apply mathematical concepts to this social studies assignment with success.
