Sal integrates the concept of random variables into probability problems in this video. Clarifying that the terminology can be technical but that the process is simple, Sal can get through to even the most reticent math student.
You will need to prepare either a class set or a single demonstration catapult in order to teach this powerful lesson on kinetic and potential energy. Activity sheets are provided to walk learners through the construction of a catapult. If you choose to teach via demonstration, you can jump straight to Activity Sheet 3, on which is a data table for recording distances. Different features of the catapult are varied for comparison. A vocabulary list and challenge questions are provided.
In this confidence intervals worksheet, students solve 3 multi-part short answer problems. Students find the confidence interval for scanners, soda machines, and commercial soap given a word problem.
In this math review worksheet, students review for their exam using a variety of worksheets on different topics. There are 34 problems plus some word problems in the worksheet booklet.
High schoolers log their computer usage hours. They determine the mean, median, mode and standard deviation of the collected data. They make a frequency histogram of the grouped data, both on graph paper, and on the TI 83+ graphing calculator.
High schoolers experiment and compare results of two populations. In this men and women populations activity, students examine the difference in hand span for men and women. High schoolers calculate a norm based on their results. Students complete additional problems to find the norm.
Students use statistics to solve problems based on the spread of disease. In this disease lesson students study the role that viruses and bacteria play in the spread of diseases and explain pandemics.
High schoolers explore the concept of normal curves. In this normal curves lesson plan, students find the normal curve for a crop of oranges. High schoolers graph the harvest and answer questions about quartiles. Students discuss which oranges are sold to a specific buyer.
In this statistics instructional activity, students solve 25 multiple choice problems. Students find combinations, probabilities, coefficients of determination, etc.
High schoolers examine the pattern of natural variation in a society. They examine Darwin's theory of evolution and analyze data. They use computer programs to graphically display the variation in organisms.
Biology beginners observe traits in a collection of plant parts to realize the tremendous amount of genetic variation within a species. They consider rules of nature and discuss what would happen if they changed. They also examine data comparing gestation time to number of babies born and lifestyles to find that gestation is an environment-influenced adaptation. Plenty of critical thinking is stimulated through these activities, and as a result, your class will more fully understand gentetic variation.
Students collect statistical data. In groups, students play a dart game and then determine the distance between darts. They collect the data and plot the information on a coordinate plane. They identify the mean and the standard deviation.
In this secondary mathematics instructional activity, students are provided with questions that are reflective of the types of questions on the New York State Regents Examination. The twenty-four page instructional activity contains a combination of thirty-four multiple choice and free response questions. Answers are included.
In this math worksheet, students review basic concepts of algebra, and geometry in preparations for the Regents high school Examination. There are 34 questions.
Studens construct their own catapult. In this history of catapults lesson, students work in groups to make their own model of a catapult. Students use physics vocabulary terms explain how the catapult works. Students test the catapults and record the features that made the best catapult.
In this clairvoyance worksheet, learners create a probability histogram. They explore the standard deviation for the given situation. This six-page worksheet contains approximately 10 multi-step problems. This worksheet is designed to be completed with a partner.
Examine the concept of variation through observation and measurement. Middle schoolers will study a peanut and record any distinguishing characteristics visible as well as sketch their peanuts and describe them in writing. Their peanut is put in a bag with others and they try to identify it. Students then receive 15-20 peanuts in which they make measurements and examine the variation in length of the different peanuts and the variation in measurements.
Students examine the use of bar graphs and histograms. For this data representation lesson, students investigate the proper use of bar graphs and histograms to represent data. They learn the proper geometric definitions, experience direct instruction, guided practice, and independent application using the provided worksheets.
For this precalc lesson, students write out definitions, identify functions, solve integrals and derivatives and graph trig functions as they relate to angles. This is a final exam for precalculus. There are 80 questions on this exam.
