A rich task to discover and practice how to find like terms and then simplify expressions.
American Football is a game of positive and negative yards. This game simulates this experience. It shows students where negatives exist in real life (America’s favorite sport) and helps them to practice and further realize the rule for adding integers of different signs.
In this lesson students will see why math is important in helping us describe things like the speed of a car. Without math describing how fast a car is going is much more difficult. Students will watch a video, make observations, and discover math to help them describe what is happening.
In this lesson students will take a walk and discover where geometric figures are around them. Please read the lesson plan fully as there is a lot of depth and variety that this lesson can provide which is all spelled out in the lesson plan.
In this lesson students will ask questions and answer questions about stuff they care about and then summarize their data in a single or double bar graph.
In this lesson students will cement understanding of order of operations while seeing how this often boring math subject can relate to the rules and order we have to follow in life to accomplish even the most basic tasks.
Students will use proportions and proportional reasoning to accurately calculate how tall something is without actually measuring the height of that object – since it is really tall and they can’t!
Students will calculate quarterback passer ratings to determine which quarterback is better using algebraic substituting into equations.
Students will discover an equation that will allow them to calculate the cost of a cell plan with variables involved using algebraic concepts. Students will have to do research to discover the costs.
Students will design clothing and then use substitution into a preset equation to determine how much they should charge for their clothing.
Students will create a question and ask that question to collect data and then analyze that data to pull as much meaning out of the numbers as possible.
