Do I Have to Mow the Whole Thing?

Students explore the concept of inverse variation. In this inverse variation lesson plan, students calculate an area formula for the dimensions of a garden with constant area. Students rearrange the formula into a y equals equation. Students solve problems given a constant where they must determine the number of something, for example, you have $30, how many cd's can you buy if they cost $5, $3, etc.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
