Investigate sound through non-linear functions, graphing, function tables, and equations. The class is given a graph of sound vs. distance, they must determine an equation to fit the graph and knowing that the graph is not linear. Various clues such as that y values are never negative or that the function doesn't have a y-intercept. A great way to show the connection between math and science.
