In this understanding slope worksheet, learners solve 13 various problems that are related to determining the slope of a line. First, they calculate the rate of change by analyzing the differences in the x- and y-values. Then, students determine which grows at a faster rate and create a graph to represent their data found, identifying which line on the graph is steeper.
Students construct an Earth/Sun model of planet revolution that incorporates the orbital geometry concepts. They record Earth/Sun relative distance and Sun nadir observations acquired from model simulation of Earth's relative position and geometry at each solstice and equinox.
Students explore the distance formula using real world data from nonviolent marches for social change. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate the marches of Gandhi and King using maps overlaid with a coordinate grid. Students use the distance formula to determine the lengths of the marches.
Students work with Vernier real-time data collection probes. In this data collection lesson, students conduct time and distance experiments while collecting data and calculating averages. They use Vernier CBR probes and apply the appropriate formulas to investigate speed, acceleration, weight, and mass.
Middle and high schoolers explore the concept of slope. In this slope lesson, learners graph lines using a life-size graph. They use chalk on a blacktop to create a coordinate plane and use each other as the tick marks on the grid. Pupils change the slope in relation to steepness and direction.
