Learners explore the concept of GCD and LCM. In this GCD and LCM lesson, students use a CAS program on their graphing calculator to determine the LCD and GCD of polynomials and large numbers. Learners use the GCD function to determine the GCD of various fractions such as 3/4 and 17/3.
Students bounce various tennis and racket balls, predicting and recording how fast they can bounce and catch them. They graph the results on a coordinate plane. And then, they compare their graphs with one another, analyzing how different variables affected their results. Finally, students identify how temperature can change the elasticity of materials.
Students explore the concept of building a playground. In this building a playground lesson, students find the maximum area given set parameters. Students build the playground so that all the equipment fits. Students work in groups to find the biggest area that fits all the equipment.
This lesson uses GeoGebra on the Web, or Geometer's Sketchpad to investigate and identify the different properties of sines and cosines. The class learns how the laws of sine and cosine relates to a right triangle and a non-right triangle. They practice using the Pythagorean Theorem to help identify the different ratios of the triangle.
For this difference of equations worksheet, students solve and complete 49 various types of problems. First, they obtain the solution of any linear homogeneous second order difference equation. Then, students apply the method of solution to contextual problems. In addition, they use generating functions to solve non-homogeneous equations.
Students share opinions about the goals and strategies of the games they play. They investigate the World Chess Championship by reading and discussion the article "In Major League of Chess, Next Year Comes So Soon." Students study the basics of chess and attempt serveral playing strategies.
Students watch a segment of the PBS Ken Burns JAZZ documentary about Buddy Bolden creating the "Big Four." They compare and contrast the rhythms of marches and jazz based on the examples in the film, and explore notation, subdivision of notes and the altered and innovative rhythms found in jazz music.
In this Calculus instructional activity, students use a graphing calculator to boost their understanding of functions and their graphs as they examine the properties of curves. The forty-two page instructional activity contains one hundred problems. Answers are not provided.
Students analyze the impact of key historical figures on the composition of the world today. They brainstorm a list of hey historical figures who have shaped the world over the past 6000 years. Working in groups, students participate in a matching game to complete the biography of their historical figure and introduce that figure to the class.
