Comparing Fractional Parts Using Pizza
Students will compare fractional parts in a real-world situation using play dough as a model for pizza.
Equations in the Real World
Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal.
To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
Math at the Carnival
As students rotate through engaging learning stations, they utilize concrete objects, pictorial models, mnemonic devices, and strip diagrams to solve real-world, two and three-digit subtraction word problems, with and without regrouping.
Working with Literal Equations
The lesson will provide a conceptual basis for illustrating the parallelism between solving multi-step equations and translating literal equations into solutions for specified variables.
Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
Keeping it Concrete with Candy
Students will work collaboratively to apply and use digits, value, greater than/less than and base 10 knowledge to communicate numbers up to 1200 with a Halloween theme.
One-Step Word Problems
Students participate in a teacher-created three-act task in order to solve math word problems. They reactivate their prior knowledge and determine the question to solve the main problem during Act One. Act Two engages students in a differentiated, rich task. During Act Three, students compare and discuss their work with peers outside their original groups.
Solve Problems using Place Value Strategies with a Carnival Theme
Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious real-world scenario to solve one‐step and multi‐step word problems. The lesson will involve solving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using a variety of strategies based on place value.
Shop 'til You Drop
Students will identify the value of coins and determine the total value of a group of coins to select items to purchase from a given list.
Given a prompt, students will solve a multi-step equation using concrete and/or pictorial models.
17 OnTRACK Scientific Process Skills
This binder contains seventeen separate resources focused on the scientific processes for conducting laboratory and field investigations.
15 Teacher2Teacher Math Video Series
Explore the Teacher2Teacher math video series featuring key topics in mathematics instruction. Bookmark and return to this resource. New videos will be added throughout the year.
19 OnTRACK Grade 7 Math: Proportionality
Students will learn to use proportional relationships to describe dilations; to explain proportional and non-proportional relationships involving slope; and to use proportional and non-proportional relationships to develop foundational concepts of functions.
4 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Number and Operations
Students will learn how to apply mathematical process standards to represent and use real numbers in a variety of forms.
11 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Proportionality
Students learn to to use proportional relationships to describe dilation; explain proportional and non-proportional relationships involving slope; and use proportional and non-proportional relationships to develop foundational concepts of functions.
9 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Expressions, Equations, and Relationships
Students will learn to develop mathematical relationships and make connections to geometric formulas; use geometry to solve problems; use one-variable equations or inequalities in problem situations; and use multiple representations to develop foundational concepts of simultaneous linear equations.
5 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Two-Dimensional Shapes, Measurement, and Data
Students will learn to develop transformational geometry concepts and to use statistical procedures to describe data.
6 OnTRACK Algebra I: Properties and Attributes of Functions
Students will learn how to use the properties and attributes of functions.
Breakout with Linear Relationships
Through a collaborative breakout station format, students will access prior knowledge to develop a deeper understanding of the relationships of slope through proportional relationships represented by unit rate and linear non-proportional relationships. A variety of representations will be practiced through scenarios, tables, graphs, and equations.
