#### Airplanes and Airstrips Part 1

Line up to the airstrip. Using interactive graphing software, pupils determine the line that will allow a plane to safely land on a runway. Class members create their own landing strips and share with classmates to find the equation of...

Lesson Planet

#### Airplanes and Airstrips Part 2

Table the decision to land. Pupils form flight crews by matching up different representations of linear equations. Given a set of coordinates for an airstrip, the crews determine the equation of the line that will position their planes...

#### Build a Bobsled Racer

Host a design challenge of Olympic proportion! Junior engineers build their own bobsleds using simple materials. The activity focuses on kinetic and potential energy and how the center of mass affects motion on a downhill track....

Lesson Planet

#### How Hot Is It?

Do you hear that? Let's model it! Using a CD of chirping crickets at various temperatures, learners count the number of chirps per minute. Teams plot calculated averages on a scatter plot and determine the line of best fit for their...

Lesson Planet

#### Measuring Speed

Physicists say speed is relative, but most police officers disagree. Scholars experiment with the variables that relate to speed. They learn the importance of both time and distance and apply that knowledge to graphical models.

Lesson Planet

#### All About Lines

This resource should be called "All About Lines, and Then Some!". Packed full of all the key components of linear functions, learners review how to set up different equations, find intercepts, and graph. All the main topics are included...

Lesson Planet

#### Domino Effect

Carryout the lesson to determine the cost of pizza toppings from a Domino's Pizza® website while creating a linear model. Learners look through real data—and even create their own pizza—to determine the cost of each topping. They explore...

Lesson Planet

#### Stitching Quilts into Coordinate Geometry

Who knew quilting would be so mathematical? Introduce linear equations and graphing while working with the lines of pre-designed quilts. Use the parts of the design to calculate the slope of the linear segments. The project comes with...

#### Saxon Math Course 2

Add some variety to your school or district's math curriculum with this comprehensive collection of materials. Offering over 900 pages of Saxon Math lessons, worksheets, and activities, this resource is a gold mine for any middle school...

Lesson Planet

#### Write a Linear Equation Foldable

Simplicity and organization accompany the learning of linear equations in this handy foldable. Step by step, learners write a linear equation given two points, and then write a linear equation when given a graph. The point-slope...

#### Slope Example

Given a table with the number of hours worked and the amount of money earned, Sal shows in this video how to calculate the unit rate or wage per hour and its relationship to slope.

Lesson Planet

#### Slope and Y-Intercept Intuition

The instructor uses a computer graphing program to illustrate how a line changes slope by manipulating the slope values in the equation. He also manipulates the y-intercept value to see where the line crosses the y-axis.

Lesson Planet

#### Slope and Rate of Change

Introducing slope as "a way of measuring the inclination of a line," Sal endeavors to provide a working knowledge of slope problems and problem solving. The video is framed as a review, but could be a good way to fill any holes in...

Lesson Planet

#### Calculus: Derivatives 3

This video covers the differential notation dy/dx and generalizes the rule for finding the derivative of any polynomial. It also extends the notion of the derivatives covered in the Khan Academy videos, "Calculus Derivatives 2Ó and...

Lesson Planet

#### Calculus: Derivatives 2

Sal continues where he left off with the last video, "Derivatives 1,Ó by looking at the equation y = x^2 and examining the slope of the secant line at a specific point, and again defining the limit as x approaches zero to get the slope...

Lesson Planet

#### Calculus: Derivatives 2.5 (new HD version)

By defining the formal definition of a derivative, f�(x), Sal is able to find the general form of the derivate function for the example f(x) = x2. He continues to stress the importance of an intuitive understanding of derivative functions.

Lesson Planet
