Eighth graders design a product or machine and determine the impact their invention has on a person's quality of life. They present their design and machine with a description of its possible impacts to an audience of peers and adults.
Students relate slope to constant of variation using constant of variations to solve problems. They write a linear equation in the slope y-intercept form and explore the relationship between slope of the line and the speed in the distance vs. time graph.
Learners experience utilizing a robot to reinforce the importance of Algebra. They assess the importance of algebra in computer science and computer games. Students view a variety of variables involved when trying to control the actions of a robot.
Students experience creating a transport device for a disaster site. A simulation scenario is set up and the students have to create a solution for the problem. They pose as mechanical engineers and design their creations to facilitate the disaster site.
Students experience relating slopes to a constant of variations and assess those constant of variations to the solving of equations. They have calculators and computers to assist them with their task. Each student writes a linear equation in the slope y-intercept form.
Students find books by using the Dewey Decimal System. In this Dewey Decimal System lesson plan, students learn how to navigate a library that uses this system. There is also a singular and plural noun component to this instructional activity to add to the first component where students change singular nouns to irregular plural nouns.
Learners extract and isolate DNA from peas. In this biology instructional activity, students discover the chemical reactions involved in the extraction process. They explain the importance of DNA in human lives.
Sixth graders observe bacterial growth in the lab. In this biology lesson, 6th graders compare two disinfectants based on how effective they are in killing bacteria. They discuss the importance of using them at home.
Students collect heart rate data using probes. In this biology lesson plan, students explain the factors affecting heart rate. They graph and analyze collected data.
Students cool water until it freezes and then heat a test tube with ice. They collect data, which will show as a curve on the computer screen and then visualize a phase change diagram for these substances.
Learners practice number sense strategies. They estimate the sum, product and percent of two, three, and four-digit numbers. Small groups of students use computers to play java-based games.
Students create Lego go carts and use scatter plots and equations to predict where the cart will land. they take their recorded data and create a scatter plot. Using weight as the independent variable and distance as the dependent variable, students should find a best-fit line for their scatter plot and write the equation of their line.
Students calculate the odds of passing a trait from one generation to the next using principles of probability. They use interactive whiteboards to determine possible outcomes and calculate probabilities.
Students design a race for Lego robots using principles of linear relationships. The solve linear relationship problems then use the answers to brainstorm procedures for their robot race.
Students discover using motion detectors, LoggerPro, and traditional meter sticks, different methods of measuring and graphing position and velocity. They are able to open LoggerPro on the iBook computers. Students are able to collect and save data from the motion detector and create and identify different plots with the motion detector.
Middle schoolers use the Vernier Probe Technology through laboratory modules to investigate the physical properties of water and different alcohols. They produce phase change graphs and evaluate the boiling point of water and the evaporation of alcohols.
Pupils investigate electrical conductivity of solutions. Using conductivity probes, they find the different electric conductivity of some electrolytes and non-electrolytes by observing the behavior of these substances in aqueous solutions.
Students investigate phase changes by observing the cooling curve and heating curve of water, They use temperature probe connecting with computer to observe the graph of temperature change during the process of cooling and heating water.
Students utilize robotics and probes to construct the concept of distance vs. time graphs. They familiarize themselves with the mechanics of Robotics as well as the materials involved with this system. Lego pieces are named and the students build a go-cart.
Students measure force and develop the formula for the force with the help of robo robot go carts. The objective of this lesson is to build a robot that has the greatest force. A variety of formulas are covered within this lesson and experiments are exercised for completion.
