In this functions learning exercise, students identify the domain and range of a function. They find the slope of a line. Students determine the limits of an equation and note the discontinuous and continuous functions. This three-page learning exercise contains 14 multiple-choice problems.
Students are able to recognize that scientists use different definitions of species. They are able to assess the strengths and limitations of species definitions depending on their context. Students are able to use definitions of species to enhance their understanding of speciation. They are able to understand the concept of taxonomy and biodiversity inventories.
Students explore the realities of feeding a family on a very limited budget by comparing the cost of living in the 1930s to the cost of living today. Using primary documents and technology to make the comparison, they identify the impact of the economy on citizens' health and welfare. Students also engage their natural interest in eating and to identify with real-world practice in budgeting and applied mathematics.
Students identify and define the logistic model for the world population data. In this data analysis lesson, students use the model illustrated to determine the population in a given year and compare it to the population shown in the table. Students also find the limiting behavior and explain what that means.
In this physical limits lesson plan, students test the limits of a rubber band. Students will use various masses to test how far a 1/4 in. rubber band will stretch. They will record and graph their data, then evaluate how the outcome would change with rubber bands of varying sizes.
In this population worksheet, students will compare two population growth graphs and complete four short answer questions. Then students will investigate the factors that influence population growth in 8 fill in the blank statements and 4 multiple choice questions. Finally, students will complete 5 short answer questions on how organism interactions limit population size.
Young scholars research and prepare a persuasive paper on how federal courts should be constructed in a new country. In this Federal Court System lesson, students decide whether they should model a new country's federal courts after the US court system or create a new type of federal court system. Young scholars also demonstrate how power of the courts in this new country will be limited.
Students predict the impact of population density on shelter, transportation, recreation, land use, and social skills and then research that impact on Japan. They write a response about the impact of population density on food production, the cost of housing, and social behavior.
