Strike a Pose
The students will solve twostep equations through modeling, expressing algebraically, and writing out the steps to their solutions.
Proving Triangles Congruent Using the SideSideSide and SideAngleSide Postulates
Students will prove: Two triangles are congruent using the SideSideSide (SSS) and SideAngleSide (SAS) postulates.
The Golden Touch
Students will practice using a protocol to create a summary of an expository text.
Can You Summarize?
Students will work with partners, as well as independently, to create and evaluate summaries of expository text.
Comparing Box Plots and Dot Plots
This lesson is a 90minute lesson that can be delivered in one block or split into two 45 minute lessons. The first part of the lesson engages students in a notice/wonder activity that is designed to help students begin to question how data is represented in box plots and dot plots. The second part of the lesson is designed for students to compare data in box plots and dot plots and identify truths and untruths about the representations.
Which Organizational Pattern Is It?
Students will read a text, identify its organizational pattern, highlight signal words, create a visual representation/graphic organizer, and present to the class.
Working with Literal Equations
The lesson will provide a conceptual basis for illustrating the parallelism between solving multistep equations and translating literal equations into solutions for specified variables.
Wrap It Up! Lateral Area and Surface Area of Prisms
Students will be given a net to calculate how much material it would take to cover the surface.
Stoichiometry
Students will model realworld formulas and chemical reactions to investigate the meaning of limiting reactants.
Square Root Regression
This lesson is a student discovery lesson that culminates in square root regression with technology. Students will use their study of inverses, the relationship between quadratic and square root functions, their previous knowledge of regression, and determine how to find the square root regression of realworld data.
Does Paper Have Volume?
Students will be involved in a problemsolving lesson to determine if paper has volume, find the volume of a piece of paper and a ream of paper, and determine how many pieces of paper will fit inside their classroom.

Discovering the Ratio of Pi
Students will discover the ratio of pi by relating the circumference to the diameter of various circles. Students will use this ratio to approximate the formulas for circumference.

Building a Watershed
Students will model the effects of human activity on watersheds.
Area of Composite Figures
Student groups will work collaboratively using the appropriate formulas to find the area of simple figures and combine the area of each shape to find the area of composite figures in realworld situations.

Modeling the Path of Digestion
Students model the path of digestion using household items.
Diagramming Dinosaurs
Students will use a verbal representation to explore a constant rate of change in the size of dinosaurs over a period of time and represent their data by graphing.
Using Theoretical and Experimental Probability to Make Predictions
Given an event to simulate, the student will use theoretical probabilities and experimental results to make predictions and decisions.
Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
