Can We Get There?
Students will calculate the rate of change and y-intercept from a real-world 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 real-world situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.
Which One Doesn't Belong? Proportional vs Non-Proportional Relationships
Students will make connections as they examine proportional and non-proportional 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.
Proving Triangles Congruent Using the Side-Side-Side and Side-Angle-Side Postulates
Students will prove: Two triangles are congruent using the Side-Side-Side (SSS) and Side-Angle-Side (SAS) postulates.
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.
Students will model real-world formulas and chemical reactions to investigate the meaning of limiting reactants.
Square Root Regression
This lesson is a student discovery lesson that culminates in square root regression with technology. Students will use their study of inverses, the relationship between quadratic and square root functions, their previous knowledge of regression, and determine how to find the square root regression of real-world data.
Convergent Plate Boundaries
Students will design and test models that will identify crustal features formed by convergent plate boundaries.
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.
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.
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.
Concert Trip to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado
Students will evaluate and interpret data from both tabular and graphical forms to create a linear equation in either the form of direct variation (y=kx) or slope-intercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and y-intercept using a real-world relationship in word form.
Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
