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 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.
