Can We Get There?
Students will calculate the rate of change and yintercept from a realworld problem represented in a graph, a table, and/or an equation. They will then display and present their findings to the class.
No Interest If Paid in Full: How Much Do I Owe?
Students will write a linear equation from a realworld situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.
Which One Doesn't Belong? Proportional vs NonProportional Relationships
Students will make connections as they examine proportional and nonproportional relationships represented in functions including tables, equations, graphs, and verbal descriptions and think critically to determine which one does not belong in a set and why.
Finding Common Denominators
Students will work collaboratively to explore and sketch solutions to realworld addition problems involving fractions with unlike denominators. Students will be given the opportunity to use manipulatives and participate in group discussions to reflect on their learning.

Drawing Conclusions about ThreeDimensional Figures from Nets
Given a net for a threedimensional figure, the student will make conjectures and draw conclusions about the threedimensional figure formed by the given net.
Interactive Math Glossary
Using Models to Connect to and Understand Volume Formulas
The student will use models to develop formulas and connect them to the volume of prisms, spheres, cylinders, pyramids, and cones.
Estimating Measurements and Using Formulas: Surface Area
Given application problems involving lateral or total surface area the student will estimate measurements and solve the problems.
Estimating Measurements and Using Formulas: Volume
Given application problems involving volume, the student will estimate measurements and solve the problems.
Estimating Measurements and Using Models and Formulas: 3Dimensional Figures
Given application problems involving 3dimensional figures, the student will estimate measurements, including surface area and/or volume, then solve the problems.
Using the Pythagorean Theorem to Solve Indirect Measurements
Given reallife problems, the student will use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve the problems.
Determining the Effects of Proportional Change on Area
Given pictorial representations and problem situations involving area, the student will describe the effects on area when dimensions are changed proportionally.
Determining the Effects of Proportional Change on Perimeter
Given pictorial representations and problem situations involving perimeter, the student will describe the effects on perimeter when dimensions are changed proportionally.
