Will the new iPhone sales be huge?

Apple just announced their new, 10th anniversary, iPhones.  These phones will soon be in stores.  What will their record sales be like this time?  How many iPhones will they sell?

In this activity students explore past iPhone launch sales data and try to predict how many iPhone 7’s, 8’s, and X’s will be sold during the 2017 sales year.

Younger students can investigate the data through a bar graph, while older students can use a scatter plot and even use equations to model sales growth.
