Students will collect bivariate data by doing an experiment in class and then see if they can find any correlation in the data.
Students will use the Pythagorean theorem to learn more about screen size and the math behind those rectangles that hang on everyone’s wall.
Students will explore if you can make a square pizza with different amounts of pizza slices and see what doors it opens into understanding and estimating square roots.
7.G.3 Students will go on a walk around school and discover what 3-Dimensional shapes are all around and then construct and discover what 2-Dimensional shapes make them up.
7.G.5 Students will look at images of skateboarders performing tricks and attempt to find the measure of angles that relate to the trick.
Students will manipulate figures to discover how transformations can move figures to specific places.
Students will reflect on reflecting and discover how math can help us describe what a mirror actually does.
Description: Students will watch videos of roller coasters and attempt to hypothesize how long it would to take for two roller coasters to crash into each other if they were overlapping. Students will utilize the concepts of Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, Slope, and Y-Intercept to accomplish this.
7.RP.1,2 Students will love to play the role of the detective in this lesson as they use their rates/slope/linear equations skills to solve the mystery of who the thief is.
In this lesson students will mathematically visualize their running by graphing it. The lesson focuses on comparing linear and nonlinear progressions (constant vs. variable rate of change) as well as simply reading graphs and interpreting what they are showing you and even some prediction.
Students will use a personal item to help them better understand how far away the moon is.
