Let me introduce you to 2 Point Pete. Don’t forget 2 Point Paul and 2 Point Paula. We aren’t sure if Paula will ever be acute triangle, but we do know she is always right. Students will explore perimeter, area and the Pythagorean Theorem using a coordinate plane.
How many different ways have you seen a pizza sliced? Students will find and describe patterns in popular slicing styles. Finally, students are challenged to maximize their equation writing and pizza slicing skills.
Even polygons dream about the grass being greener on the other side. This lesson will challenge students to use their reasoning skills to compare properties of shapes in hope to make them more similar.
If you hang in there a bit, we promise this lesson will make you Gig-gle. Students will look at the amount of storage their electronic device has. They will use unit rates, unit conversions, and look into non-linear functions.
This lesson is a great way to assess student understanding of multiple 8th grade standards including scientific notation and volume of spheres. Students are asked to reason about the very small and the very large as they convert from one to the other.
How hard is it to kick a field goal? Students look at the probabiliy of making a field goal....with a paper football, of course. This lesson will allow students to examine the relationships between fractions, percents, and decimals.
Students will look into the future of transportation which will allow us to travel across country in a matter of minutes. They will analyze and compare the cost, speed, and efficiency to present day travel.
What does it take to balance a teeter totter? Join forces with our Ted Ed lesson to learn about the mathematics behind the lever. Students will use proportions to creatively solve and discuss the structure of equations in relation to the lever.
It's ALIVE!!! It's ALIVE!!! It's ALIVE!!!! If you build it, they will learn. Students will replace Dr. Frankenstein and use measurement, number sense, and proportional reasoning to build their own creature.
It's ALIVE!!! It's ALIVE!!! It's ALIVE!!!! If you build it, they will learn. Students will replace Dr. Frankenstein and use centimeter measurement, number sense, and proportional reasoning to build their own creature.
Who knew cutting the cheese could be so difficult? What would happen if a gigantic cube of cheese fell into Central Park, New York? Students will use measurement and proportional reasoning to determine what to do with all of this cheese.
How long of a ladder do you need to become a hero? First, student make sure they are safely becoming a hero. Then, they discover the relationships between the pythagorean theorem, angles of right triangles, and the main three trigonometric functions.
