In this geometry worksheet, students plot coordinate pairs and connect the points to create different shapes. They give th shapes its polygon's name. They differentiate between simple functions and rectangular hyperbola.
In this Trig learning exercise, 12th graders identify and differentiate between trig graphs. They identify phase, translation and solve equations dealing with angles.
Mathematician Collectable Cards
Students explore the concept of famous mathematicians. In this famous mathematician lesson, students research famous mathematicians. Students create collector's cards highlighting their accomplishments.
BSI: Biographical Scene Investigators
Turn your middle schoolers into Biographical Scene Investigators in an investigative reporting lesson! They identify heroic individuals selected from the provided list and keep their own evidence notebooks regarding the actions of their subject. Next, they research print and Internet sources for evidence of the subject's heroic actions.
Bring Geometry to Life
Students explore properties of triangles. In the geometry lesson plan, students construct the centroid, circumcenter, and the orthocenter of a triangle. The dynamic nature of Geometer’s Sketchpad allows students to discover important properties regarding Euler’s line. Additionally the lesson plan considers a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and investigation into Fermat’s point.
Characters On Parade - The Triumphs of Love, Chastity, and Death and The Triumphs of Fame, Time, and Divinity
Kindergartners examine pieces of artwork and make masks to wear in a classroom parade. They examine images of The Triumphs of Love, Chastity, and Death, and The Triumphs of Fame, Time, and Divinity. After looking at the characters that are depicted in the images, they create masks to be worn in a parade.
The Pythagorean Theorem
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders answer questions about right triangles by identifying the 3 sides of the triangle. They analyze the different shapes of polygons and relate them to right triangles to find the sides using the pyhtogoraean theorem. This worksheet contains 10 interactive questions with answers.
The Theorem of Pythogoras
For this geometry worksheet, students solve right angle triangles using the Pythagorean Theorem. They calculate the area and sides of triangles and circles. There are 52 questions total.
The Overlooked Regular Pentagon
Tenth graders discuss the history of geometry as it relates to pentagons. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders solve problems of a pentagon inscribed inside of a circle using ratio. They review other properties for shapes of polygons inscribed inside of a circle.
Tenth graders investigate the history of geometry and its different shapes. For this geometry lesson, 10th graders practice seeing three dimensional shapes and explain why there are only five polyhedra. They relate all the new materials from previously learned materials.
Proving the Pythagorean Theorem
Students solve problems using the pythagorean Theorem. In this geometry lesson plan, students complete proofs using the Pythagorean Theorem. They share their proofs and solutions with their classmates and family members.
Measuring the Egyptian Way using the Pythagorean Theorem
Young scholars measure using the Pythagorean Theorem. In this geometry lesson, students solve right triangles using the properties of the Pythagorean theorem. They apply the same knowledge to solving story problems.

Students use the pythagorean theorem to solve problems. In this geometry lesson, students solve parts of a right triangle using the properties of the pythagorean theorem.
Students calculate the midpoint and distances of two points using the distance formula. In this geometry lesson, students apply the concept of distance to solve real life problems.
Students apply the different theorems of a triangle as they define similarity of shapes. In this geometry lesson, students solve problems involving right triangles. They compare the triangles using ration and proportions as they relate to the Pythagorean Theorem.
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders solve application word problems involving the use or right triangle trigonometry, including angle of elevation or depression. The one page interactive worksheet contains five questions. Hints, clues, and answers are provided.
Read and Infer: Emerson's "Self-Reliance"
The complete text of Ralph Waldo Emerson's manifesto "Self-Reliance" is accompanied by 9 excellent reflection questions. Encourage quadrant D-level thinking by challenging readers to infer, evaluate, and synthesize meaning from the text, and integrate it with the work of Henry David Thoreau. This is made for homeschoolers, but I'd use it in my classroom.
The History of Mathematics
Research the interrelationship between math and science. Search the Internet to discover the history of several branches of mathematics and make text-to-world connections between the concepts covered in each branch with related scientific fields. Then complete a T-chart with information obtained from the research conducted.
The Art of the Italian Renaissance
Feast your eyes on some of the most beautiful and important art of the Renaissance, including paintings, sculptures, and architecture. The slides take care to detail the characteristics of each art form, but the presentation really lends itself to the interpretations of the viewer - just as the finest art tends to do. They will truly see history with new eyes after this sumptuous experience.
