Students will work towards a goal of raising money through a bake sale.
7.EE.1,2 The students will be creating a business that sells a product they create and design. They will then use math to price and predict sales of their products.
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 analyze and create mathematical sequences and number patterns and then create visual representations of them. Students will learn that patterns that occur naturally in nature and ones that are manmade have a mathematical underlying to them.
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 be reading graphs and explaining the stories they tell. They will then make a graph and story of something they enjoy doing.
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.
7.EE.4 Students change messages into codes using algebra, and then crack the code to find out what the message says.
