Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans
Students will write linear equations in pointslope form given two points via a verbal description.
Glaciologist in Action (Lab)
Students participate in a handson lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.
Mendelian Genetics Using Monohybrids
Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious, realworld scenario to determine the probability of each breeding pair of dogs producing offspring with the desired trait for a fictitious client.
Perfecting Percents
Students will engage in an activity that allows them to explore the different parts of percents: part, whole, and percent, and develop conceptual understanding of percents through the Concrete, Representational, Abstract (CRA) method of instruction.
Organizing Olympic Outcomes
Students will explore frequency tables, dot plots, and stem and leaf plots by creating different representations from a given set of data points.
Roll With It
Students will experience a handson lesson regarding ratios. While doing this, students will deepen their understanding of the concepts of ratios.
Place Value Party
In learning stations, students prepare for a birthday party by using their knowledge of place value to compose, decompose, and represent numbers using standard, word, and expanded forms.
Strike a Pose
The students will solve twostep equations through modeling, expressing algebraically, and writing out the steps to their solutions.
Manifest Density
Students will design a foil boat and add mass to test relative density.
Can We Get There?
Students will calculate the rate of change and yintercept from a realworld problem represented in a graph, a table, and/or an equation. They will then display and present their findings to the class.
No Interest If Paid in Full: How Much Do I Owe?
Students will write a linear equation from a realworld situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.
Decomposing Number Exploration
Students will decompose a number up to 20 using manipulatives and graphic organizers.
Which One Doesn't Belong? Proportional vs NonProportional Relationships
Students will make connections as they examine proportional and nonproportional relationships represented in functions including tables, equations, graphs, and verbal descriptions and think critically to determine which one does not belong in a set and why.
Proving Triangles Congruent Using the SideSideSide and SideAngleSide Postulates
Students will prove: Two triangles are congruent using the SideSideSide (SSS) and SideAngleSide (SAS) postulates.
Hopping into RealWorld Ratios
Students will listen to a book read aloud called If You Hopped Like a Frog that introduces students to proportions. Students will then create word problems for the different animals and their proportions in the story.
What’s the Verdict? An Investigation of Herbicide Drift on Grapevines
Students will investigate the possible effects of herbicide drift on grape production by making inferences from an article about a local vineyard and using various experimental materials.
Planting the Seeds of Perimeter
Students will create planters that meet specific perimeter dimensions. The students will need to determine the number of sides and the perimeter for their planter.
Balancing Act
Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.
Drumming Up Some Sound Energy!
Students will explore sound energy by creating their own drums using a variety of materials. Then, students will listen for the loud and soft sounds that each of the drums creates.
Independent and Dependent Variable in Tables and Graphs
Students will use information in a realworld scenario to create a table or graph, translate the meaning of the table or graph, and identify the independent and dependent quantities.
