How does algebra relate to real life? High schoolers will construct and test computer chips to determine the function of each, and discuss real life applications of the Boolean Algebraic concept. Included are discussion questions, gender equity considerations, web links, a clear procedure, and all necessary worksheets. The format is a slide show.
In this astronomy worksheet students use data from the Wide Field Infrared Survey Experiment, to answer a series of 3 problems about the magnitude of stars. This worksheet includes the answers. Students need to have an understanding of Algebra. This worksheet can be printed.
Keep your mathematicians engaged using this group linear functions activity. Each of ten groups receives two graphs with both an image and equation, as well as a "who has" phrase to call out the next graph. Scholars stay on their toes as you move through the graphs, showing each on a transparency and then challenging groups to see if they have the next described graph. They practice applying the terms parallel, perpendicular, slope and intersect. A recording sheet will give an added element of engagement for learners.
In this solving multiplication and division algebraic equations worksheet, students solve and state the inverse operations, write and solve equations to find missing parts of areas, write equations to show how the input is changed to the output on charts, and answer word problems. Students solve eighteen problems.
Kids use functions to solve and graph 3 different problems that include following steps to graph various functions. First, they create a formula to calculate the cost of different numbers given in a table. Then, they determine the cost of each item by solving the equation with the appropriate variables.
Print and use this useful unit on basic algebraic functions, domain, range, and graphing. Tasks include, illustrating simple functions with a graph, and identifying the domain and range of the function. This twelve-page packet contains approximately 20 problems, thorough explanations, examples, and suggested learning activities.
In this two-digit divisors worksheet, 5th graders divide the equations using two-digit divisors. In the first set, students estimate the quotients and write the compatible numbers they used. In the second set, students divide using two digit divisors and check their answers using estimation or multiplication. In the third set, students use mental math to solve. Students then find each missing value of y in the algebra functions and complete two test prep division questions.
Learners study exponential decay and its application to radiocarbon dating. In this exponential decay lesson, students use candy to model the time it takes for something to decay. Learners also graph the data they collect and describe using an algebraic formula that gives the age of an object as a function.
Use this complete lesson plan to introduce geometers to inverse trigonometric functions. Learners use trigonometric ratios to solve triangles when an angle measure is known, then explore using the inverse process when only side lengths are given. The exploration naturally leads to a discussion about use of the inverse trigonometric function keys on the calculator. The lesson also includes five practice problems, three of which are real-world scenarios. Each practice problem has multiple parts.
Middle schoolers create a method for finding the area of a fame for a picture and then transfer their shared methods into algebraic expressions. They develop the algebraic language to communicate and solve problems effectively and use variables and symbols to write equations. Pupils use the computer to examine graphic representation of their equations.
