Three dimensional models provide a basis for many interesting math, science, and design experiences. This card modeling unit provides a unique way for students to explore a variety of geometric concepts that reach out from the traditional two dimensional models typically used in instruction. This fl more
In this sub-unit, students are introduced to 2-variable linear equations. They learn to graph these equations usinig a variety of methods and to determine the equation of a line from its graph. The bulk of the concepts in this unit will be introduced through the vocabulary of the economics study in more
This inquiry-based lesson begins with a quick but fun exploration of how to make a mural. It builds up the notion of proportionality, teaching students how to solve proportions with equivalent fractions AND how to identify whether a situation is proportional in the first place. It's the first lesson more
In this group of lessons, students plan a family road trip for their families using the car they have selected during their project. While planning the trip, they learn to use and apply proportional reasoning in order to solve real-life problems.
