###
Courts of Measure

Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Fractions with Multi-Step Problems

Students will be able to work collaboratively while baking to find the least common multiples of fractions with unlike denominators and create equivalent fractions, then add or subtract.

###
Particular Polygons

Students will be able to classify 2D figures by analyzing their attributes.

###
Trip to the Theme Park

Students will work on a real-world based project in class involving multiplication of decimals requiring budgeting skills.

###
Dividing Fractions

Students will model dividing unit fractions and whole numbers.

###
Give a Hoot . . . Fraction Scoot

Students will add and subtract unlike denominators using pictorial models and manipulatives. During the lesson, they will use both group and independent work to build confidence as they use a variety of formative assessments to check for understanding. The final activity in the lesson has both application of the concepts being taught and a personal reflection of understanding.

###
Finding Common Denominators

Students will work collaboratively to explore and sketch solutions to real-world addition problems involving fractions with unlike denominators. Students will be given the opportunity to use manipulatives and participate in group discussions to reflect on their learning.

###
Four Representations of Linear Relationships

Given one representation of a linear relationship, students will create a poster displaying the other three representations of linear relationships.

###
Analyzing Bar Graphs: Candy Machines

Working in groups, students will examine a bag of candy to determine if the machine that bags the candy is working properly. They will organize data on the colors of the candy in a frequency table and a bar graph. They will calculate the fraction of each color in the bag and compare the fractions to a quota set up by the factory to determine if the machine needs maintenance. Students will create a report about their findings, write a question that requires students to interpret data represented in a bar graph, and reflect in their journals.

###
Concert Trip to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado

**Students will evaluate and interpret data from both tabular and graphical forms to create a linear equation in either the form of direct variation (y=kx) or slope-intercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and y-intercept using a real-world relationship in word form.**

###
Measurement Properties for 2-D and 3-D Shapes

**Students will be able to use a problem-solving model, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications when solving problems involving two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. Students will integrate content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.**
