Plankton: so much more than just a SpongeBob character. Three different activities have kids looking at both phytoplankton and zooplankton in pictures, as well as collecting their own samples (depending on your access to a saltwater system) and examining them under a microscope, then creating and testing plankton models.

Energy for Life (Energy from Food)
Energy comes in many forms, but how do living things get the energy they need to survive and thrive? In a simple, controlled experiment with yeast, water, and sugar, groups make observations about how yeast reacts with water alone, then with water and sugar.

New Review Snail Invasion
Exponential growth is modeled by learners as they analyze and interpret the data presented in this real-life scenario centered on the destructive invasion of the Giant African Land Snail. Learners get a touch of history and practice using and manipulating exponential equations.

New Review Gases Matter
Young scientists learn that seeing isn't necessarily believing when it comes to the states of matter. After performing a fun class demonstration that models the difference between solids, liquids, and gases, children complete a series of investigations that involve measuring the mass of different gases.

What's the Relationship?
Students find a model to fit a set of data. In this finding a model to fit a set of data lesson, students are given a set of data about copper ion concentration. Students determine if the data is a power, exponential, or logarithmic model using regression lines.

Inverse Functions: Pennies, Pressure, Temperature and Light
The major goal of this activity is to collect data from a variety of experiments, and then determine what type of model best fits the data, and explain why. Students will explore a variety of relationships using pennies, pressure, temperature, light, and pe

Using Matrices for Data
In this matrices for data worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 29 various types of problems that include using matrices to illustrate data. First, they determine the sum, difference and scalar product for each matrices shown. Then, students write the equation of the line of best fit that models the data in the table.

Modeling the Keeling Curve with Excel
In this modeling the Keeling Curve worksheet, students use given data beginning in 1960 to create a mathematical model for the changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide over time. Students manipulate the equation to predict the carbon dioxide concentrations for the future.

Bivariate Data – Grade 11
Eleventh graders determine a line of regression and coefficient of correlation for bivariate data. In this Algebra II lesson, 11th graders determine the relationship between the regression line and the correlation coefficients. This review lesson provides an opportunity for students to learn the material in a different way, including visually and symbolically.
