Slide Along

Middle schoolers find the areas of parallelograms, trapezoids, and triangles.  They use a geoboard on the Ti-73 to construct each shape and find its' area. Pupils record the lengths of the figures in tables on their paper.

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.
