Students solve real world story problems using algebra. In this algebra problem solving lesson, students use information about bone measurement to predict gender using algebraic equations. Students organize data, represent the information on a graph, and write an explanation of how they used the data to draw a conclusion. Several similar story problems are given for group solving activities.
Young mathematicians explore data collection and mathematical problem solving. They will work in cooperative groups to determine the height of a tree by measuring several predetermined distances on the ground. They will use the data collected to set up mathematical ratio problems and calculate the height of the tree.
Students collect data about the brightness of different light bulbs. In this data collection about the brightness of different light bulbs lesson, students determine the relationship of various watt light bulbs. Students plot their data using a scatter plot. Students find a linear model to fit the data.
