Regents Examination in Integrated Algebra Test Sampler
In this Algebra I/Geometry/Algebra II worksheet, students solve problems that reflect the types of assessment items found on the Regents Examination for the state of New York. The seventy-one page document contains a combination of thirty-four multiple choice and free response test items along with samples of student work, rubrics, and subject matter alignment. Answers are not included.
Students explore careers that require math knowledge and solve real life math problems. As a class, they compare and contrast classroom math to real life math and explore the links between algebra, geometry and math skills used in school and in a career. In pairs, students complete worksheets. They play a quick response game where they list five ways a given job uses math.
Algebra: Mirror, Mirror on the Universe
Students assess how algebra, telescopes, space exploration and optics are so important in astronomy. They encounter studies on the Hubble Space Telescope, Hubble Deep Field and how algebra helps to determine the effects of contamination on Hubble's optics. Students are introduced to the development of the Next Generation Space Telescope.
Geometry in the World of Art
Students explore geometric shapes. In this geometry lesson, students use geoboards to construct various geometric shapes. Students identify quadrilaterals and parallel lines.
Basic Geometry ... A Pathway to Angles
Help 9th graders identify lines, points, rays, and planes in geometry. They practice identifying, measuring, and drawing angles of different degrees. This is a fundamental lesson to help students learn the building blocks of geometry.
Study geometry through the concept of quilt design. High schoolers examine the geometric shapes in various quilts and then create their own quilts using geometric shapes that fit together. In the end, they write a paragraph to describe their quilt pattern.
Balancing Algebraic Understanding
Students are shown visual how an algebra equation is balanced by using a pan balance. They are shown a variety of overheads to help them explain the concept.
Algebra in Balance
Students practice with algebra equations to determine if they are balanced. They also graph the equations.
Miras, Mirrors, and Kaleidoscopes!
High schoolers use hands-on activities to explore transformations. They view a video segment that demonstrate how M. C. Escher employed geometry and transformations to create so many of his famous drawings.
Bring Geometry to Life
Students explore properties of triangles. In the geometry lesson plan, students construct the centroid, circumcenter, and the orthocenter of a triangle. The dynamic nature of Geometer’s Sketchpad allows students to discover important properties regarding Euler’s line. Additionally the lesson plan considers a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and investigation into Fermat’s point.
Concepts in Algebra
Students study the islamic achievement in mathematics In this algebra instructional activity, students review the six forms of equations of Al-Khwarizmi. They solve equations using different forms.
Can You Make a Hole in One?
Students relate miniature golf to reflection of an image. In this algebra lesson plan, students collect and graph data as they study linear equations. They apply properties of graphing to solve real life scenarios.
Optimization For Breakfast
Students identify he proportion of a cereal box. In this algebra lesson, students define the relationship between patterns, functions and relations. They model their understanding using the cereal box.
Reflection and Symmetry
Tenth graders investigate reflection and symmetry. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore reflection on a coordinate plane. Students investigate symmetry of geometric shapes and parabolas.
Algebra/Geometry Institute Summer 2009
Students investigate linear equations through models. In this algebra lesson, students investigate solving one and two step equations. Review solving a basic equation before starting this assignment.
New! Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
Students explore the concepts of identity, inverse, commutativity, and associativity. They investigate and analyze moves performed with a plus sign.
Students discuss what good presentation looks like. In this geometry lesson, students discuss the 7 important steps required to be a good presenter. They start with their names and what they will be discussing and end with a thank you to all who helped with the creation of their work. They may work in groups.
Miami Metrozoo & Mathematics
Twelfth graders use Algebra and Geometry to solve a real life problem at the Zoo.
Middle schoolers solve various mathematical word problems to help them develop algebraic thinking skills.
