Lower graders explore recursive patterns. They use a calculator to recognize, generate, and explore patterns during arithmetic explorations. The unit provides several assignments of an exploratory nature designed to assist in developing mathematical thinking and reasoning.
How do fashion and math relate? Using interactive websites and video clips, learners apply proportional reasoning to the fashion industry. They look for patterns and linear relationships, apply unit rate concepts to garment materials costs and retail pricing. Make merchandisers out of your mathematicians with this two-part instructional activity!
Third graders investigate numerical and geometric patterns and express them in words or numbers. In this algebraic reasoning lesson, 3rd graders analyze the structure of the pattern and how it changes or grows, organize information systematically, and use analysis to develop generalizations.
Students solve and graph trigonometric equations, stating the amplitude, period and vertical shift. In this trigonometric equations lesson, students solve and graph one problem using algebraic reasoning, the 2nd through 6th problems allow a technological solution. Students summarize the characteristics of a table (shown on the worksheet). They solve one Application problem (guided questioning is used).
This activity gets at the heart of algebraic reasoning and setting up equations with one variable to solve real-world problems. The worksheet has only one problem, but it requires that learners first use their own reasoning capabilities to understand the solution and then build an algebraic equation.
Four simple equations, each with two variables, try to get at the important question of reasoning about equations. The problem isn't to solve the equations, but to understand the nature of their solutions. These equations address the importance of reasoning, which is at the heart of the Common Core math standard.
Students consider the future of endangered species. In this conservation lesson, students view a slide show and use mathematical data to construct a prediction for the survival of an endangered species. This lesson includes, personal accounts, math puzzles, a variety of online resources, pictures, and vocabulary.
Pupils explore the concept of dimension and its affect on overall volume. They construct rectangular prisms out of paper, then fill their prisms with popcorn. By transferring the same amount of popcorn to various prisms, they are able to compare the different sizes. This makes the concept of volume not only visual for your class, but also quite tasty!
Sixth and seventh graders explore algebra word problems. They work with a partner to solve word problems distributed by e-mail. Learners simplify mathematical expressions following a "think aloud" algebra strategy modeled by the teacher. Many examples/worksheets are provided.
Students use proportions to find distances using maps and measurements. In this real world math lesson, students complete a course marked outside, then map the course and find locations. Lesson includes an article explaining why this type of activity is used and extension activities.
