Find Fahrenheit educational ideas and activities
Learners apply critical thinking skills as they analyze data about the temperature inside a gymnasium during a school assembly. The focus is on representing temperature as a function of time and interpreting input and output values within the context of the problem. Students work through a series of four exercises designed to develop the concept of the average rate of change over time. The resource is appropriate for either instruction or assessment.
This math packet includes four different activities which puts linear equations and line of best fit in the context of real world applications. Each activity uses a different linear math modeling equation and asks the learners to complete several questions. And grading will be a breeze, because answers are included.
Faber, one of the character’s in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 observes, “Remember, the firemen are rarely necessary. The public itself stopped reading of its own accord.” As an assessment, ask your pupils to select a quote from their reading, identify the speaker, and explain the significance of the line to the story. These concepts can be applied to any narrative and the activity is a good assessment of the writer’s understanding of the text.
Why do we salt roads when they have ice on them? Middle school physical scientists experiment to find out that salt lowers the freezing point of water. This classic lab experiment has a practical application and is also designed to meet Common Core standards for literacy in science.
In this temperature instructional activity, students find the slope of a line when comparing the change in Fahrenheit temperature to the change in Celsius. They convert temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit. Explanations and examples are provided. There are approximately 10 problems in this two-page instructional activity.
In this temperature worksheet, students write temperatures beneath pictures, using Fahrenheit or Celsius, then write words to describe the temperatures. Students also order temperatures, choose better estimates and solve 2 test prep problems. Houghton Mifflin text is referenced.
Students find temperatures using both the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales. They collect data from the Internet or a newspaper to analyze. They see these two scales are linearly related, determine the equation of the line relating them, and use their TI-Nspire™ computer software to convert any temperature in the Celsius scale to one in the Fahrenheit scale.
