7.NS.1,3 The students will compare extreme temperatures in the U.S. and then discovering other extreme temperatures in the world to compare further.
Students will make a summer schedule with set amounts of days between each activities and find out how often they will meet up with friends who do the same activity. Students are then given an amount of 2 or more supplies and instructed to determine the greatest amount of equal “packs” they could make.
Students will use candy to explore what happens when they divide a fraction into even smaller amounts and take a fraction of a fraction.
Students will determine how many miles their future vehicle will accrue and analyze the cost of certain cars based on initial cost and gas mileage.
7.SP.5 Students will predict the likelihood of chance events happening.
7.SP.3 The students will compare two sets of data both visually and statistically to gain insights.
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.
7.G.2 Students will attempt to construct triangles and then choose which of those triangles would be useful in engineering solutions to real world problems.
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 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.
