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.
Planting the Seeds of Perimeter
Students will create planters that meet specific perimeter dimensions. The students will need to determine the number of sides and the perimeter for their planter.
Balancing Act
Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.
The Shapes Around Us
Students will make connections between realworld objects and the attributes of twodimensional shapes.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
Models of Multiplication
Students will solve onestep multiplication problems using various multiplication strategies such as objects, pictorial models, arrays, equal groups, repeated addition, and number lines.

Using Logical Reasoning to Prove Conjectures about Circles
Given conjectures about circles, the student will use deductive reasoning and counterexamples to prove or disprove the conjectures.
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.
Generalizing Geometric Properties of Ratios in Similar Figures
Students will investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships and apply the definition of similarity, in terms of a dilation, to identify similar figures and their proportional sides and congruent corresponding angles.
Determining Area: Sectors of Circles
Students will use proportional reasoning to develop formulas to determine the area of sectors of circles. Students will then solve problems involving the area of sectors of circles.
