Linear and Exponential Modeling with Two Variables
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
Hands-on activities allow beginners to model and graph equations with two variables. The lesson begins with evaluation and discussion of prepared linear graphs. Next, learners use math manipulatives to generate data, graph data, and then...
Fill It Up, Please - Part I (Option B)
9th - 10th CCSS: Designed
Childhood's fond memories of beachy days building sandcastles get the algebraic treatment in this rate-of-change investigation and problem set. Learners model filling rectangular prisms with sand, then discuss the meaning and effect of...
Submarines and Aircraft Carriers: The Science of Nuclear Power
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
As physics masters view this presentation, they learn how nuclear power is used in submarines. They use Google Maps to plot a course through the ocean and calculate the time required for surfacing and traveling. They learn about fission,...
Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids
9th - 11th CCSS: Designed
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive Common Core lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region...
Four Ways to Understand the Earth's Age
4 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Cartoon children compare the earth's age to timescales that we understand:a calendar year, the thickness of a book, the human lifespan. This smart film clip is definitely worth adding to your geologic timescale lesson! If you subscribe...
Don't Freeze the Engine—Making Sense of Percent
7th - 10th CCSS: Designed
Add a little bit of this and a little bit of that to get the right mixture. Using an antifreeze chart, learners determine the mixture needed to protect an engine at different temperatures. Pupils calculate the amount to drain out of a...
Rediscovering Patterns in Pick's Theorem—Investigating Pick's Theorem
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Pick the area of figures wisely. Using a geoboard, learners investigate the relationship between the area of a figure and the perimeter and interior pins in the first of a three-part series. They use the pattern to develop the equation,...
Mix It Up—Making Sense of Percent Concentrations
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Concentrate on the beads as they mix. Groups physically create mixtures using scoops of colored beads. Using the manipulatives, team members get an understanding of how to determine the percentage of a mixture. They take their verbal...
