Number Sense and Numeration: Ratio and Rate
Seventh-graders solve 20 various types of problems related to ratio and rate. They write ratios in simplest form for each given statement, to compare the area of two figures, and write two ratios equivalent to each ratio. Pupils express each statement as unit rate and determine the value of each ratio. This well-written learning exercise provides many real-world examples, including the graph of the speed of racing motorcycles.
For this Pythagorean Theorem worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 19 various types of problems. First, they draw the square shown and divide its sections as shown. Then, students cut out the 6 parts of the square and rearrange the 4 triangles to form the square shown. They also find the total area of the two squares.
The Glory That Was Greece
Today we are going Greek! Provide the class with a clear and well-organized overview of all things pertaining to ancient Greece. From early Greeks and Homer, to the Persian Wars and great philosophers, this slide show has it all. Review questions are provided at the end of each major section.
In this trigonometry activity, students solve and complete 5 various types of problems. First, they find the exact ratios for each trigonometric function. Then, students use the expansion to find the exact value of a given trig function. They also solve the equations shown by restricting their answers.
Magic Squares, Simultaneous Equations, Hill Walking, and Diophantine Equations
In this solving equations worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 21 various types of problems. First, they use the method shown to find the value of xin each equation. Then, students use an algebraic approach to solve the magic squares illustrated. In addition, they use the table to solve the equations of the model provided.
Young writers design and publish a newsletter with articles that demonstrate knowledge of mathematical concepts. They explain mathematical procedures and basic operations in a news article format. Next, they compile several articles to make a newsletter. Use this interdisciplinary lesson to connect a math and language arts class.
Great Greeks With Animoto
Sixth graders are paired up, and are assigned a famous person from ancient Greece. They utilize the program Animoto in order to create a presentation on their famous person from the past. Pericles, Homer, Socrates, and Artistotle are a few of the many people who are assigned. Links to websites, and an excellent worksheet to guide them through the process are embedded in this fine plan.
Use projects, real-world activities, and games to bring precalculus to life for students.
Those Fabulous Fables
A video leads off this activity on fables, introducing the class to this important form of traditional storytelling. The group defines fable and hears an explanation of the origin of this type of folk tale. They summarize the story they watch, state the moral, and relate the moral to their own experiences. Finally, small groups retell a fable, placing it in modern context. A fun lesson sure to get even your young boys engaged!
Numbers Beyond Reason!
Fourth graders use the story of the discovery of irrational numbers to explore the different classes of numbers, the different ways in which numbers may be represented, and how to classify different numbers into their particular class.
In this Ancient Greece activity, students read a 3 page article on Ancient Greece, answer 3 facts about Ancient Greek with multiple choice answers, answer 4 statements as true or false and answer 4 fill in the blank facts about Ancient Greece.
Cook Me Up Some Equations
Students study a variety of math concepts in the context of cooking up a meal. In this math lesson, students calculate surface area and volume. They draw and interpret different types of graphs.
Angles, Bearings and Maps
Students review what they comprehend about angles. They name the differnt types of angles and define them. Students use their protractors to answer questions, the teacher walks around to look at the positioning of the protractors. They discuss finding the reflex angle if they are having problems with this.
NUMB3RS Activity: Pythagorean Triples
Tenth graders explore the Pythagorean Theorem and Pythagorean Triples. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore methods of finding Pythagorean Triples including using Fibonacci sequences.
For this Pythagorean theorem worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 6 various types of problems. First, they find the length of a right-angled triangle's hypotenuse. Then, students determine which triangle is described and explain their reasoning. They also find the distance between the points with the given coordinates.
Early Greek Science and Philosophy
There are fundamental principles that nearly everybody knows about. Define the principles of Golden Mean, Fibonacci Numbers, creativity, and matter in terms of their Greek origins. Presented here are brief histories, philosophies, and teachings of some of Greece's greatest thinkers.
Mathematics Lesson for Grade 10
There are four main topics in this bundle of lesson plans. They don't need to be taught sequentially. Each lesson has three parts: a starter, a main activity, and something to help consolidate and provide reflection on concepts learned.
The Warrior Role in Greek Society
Students are introduced to the various gods and goddesses in ancient Greek mythology. In groups, they use print and electronic resources to research the ways Greek culture has influenced the modern world. To end the lesson, they identify and write a paper on the role of the Greek warrior and participate in a role play acting out the movements of the warriors.
The Science of Sound and Musical Instruments
Students identify the components of sound. They describe the relationship between pitch and frequency and explain the terms sympathetic vibrations and resonance. They perform simple experiments about the world of sound and explain the process of hearing.
Lesson Plan: Pythagorean Theorem
Young geometers use technology (Geometer’s Sketchpad) to explore the Pythagorean Theorem and analyze different proofs. Students work in small groups to gain insight into the relationships of the sides of right triangles by constructing and measuring a variety of right triangles, using GSP to prove the theorem, and solving a number of different problems.
