Glaciologist in Action (Lab)
Students participate in a handson lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.
Organizing Olympic Outcomes
Students will explore frequency tables, dot plots, and stem and leaf plots by creating different representations from a given set of data points.
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.
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!
Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a realworld problem is correct using context and computational skills.
Running the Race with Equivalent Fractions
Students will relate positions on a relay track to a number line. Through discovery, the students will be able to identify and represent fractions and equivalent fractions on a number line.
Avoiding Common Subtraction Errors
Students will perform an error analysis of common subtraction errors related to the standard algorithm.
Convergent Plate Boundaries
Students will design and test models that will identify crustal features formed by convergent plate boundaries.
Make a Hit with Decimals
Students will compare and order decimals using baseball batting statistics. Through discovery, students will determine the top six out of eleven players to be recruited for the school’s baseball team, present their findings, and explain reasons for their orderings. From students’ explanation, strategies for ordering decimals will be determined and used to adjust subsequent lessons.

Time Using the Z Method
In small groups, students will calculate elapsed time using the Z method. This method helps students better understand the importance of start time and end time when performing elapsedtime calculations.

Open House: Challenger Oaks—Geometry by Design
Teachers will engage their students in classifying 2dimensional shapes through a realworld experience. Students will review, design, and use technology as they classify figures using common attributes.
Developing Strategies to Multiply by TwoDigit Numbers
Students will use a ThreeAct Task structure to collect data, create a frequency table and dot plot, and use the organized information to solve a problem.
Four Representations of Linear Relationships
Given one representation of a linear relationship, students will create a poster displaying the other three representations of linear relationships.
What's on the Menu?
Students will practice solving one and twostep problems in a simulated realworld situation by calculating the costs of different Thanksgiving dinners.

Full Speed Ahead
Students will use hover pucks to measure speed over a distance of six meters. Once speed has been calculated, students will determine velocity using the same data. Finally, students will be able to label all points of acceleration.
Investigating Balanced and Unbalanced Forces
Students will investigate balanced and unbalanced forces through a series of lab stations.
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.
Consumers and Producers
Students will investigate various ecosystems to determine what producers and consumers are, as well as their needs within an ecosystem.
Understanding Multiplication Using Cell Phone Plans
Students will multiply to compare cell phone plans in order to determine the best deal and to connect the standard algorithm to other multiplication strategies and place value in the real world.
