This lesson plan deals with conditional probability and the probability of simultaneous events. Problems included in this lesson tend to have solutions that are counterintuitive. This presents an opportunity to investigate more deeply the mathematical and probability concepts involved. Many resources are available to teachers and students at this website.
This lesson plan is directed at introducing students to how to graph functions on the Cartesian coordinate plane. They will experience several categories of functions including lines and parabolas. Resources and interactive tools are available to support teachers and students.
This lesson plan sets the ground work for an introduction to and then exploring the concepts that are the foundation for probability. Lots of resources are available for teachers and students at this website.
This is an interactive site that enables the viewer to input different measurements in order to learn about surface area and volume for a rectangular prism and a triangular prism.
Shodor Education Foundation provides an applet that "allows the user to explore the world of transformations, reflections, and rotations. It allows the user to translate triangles, squares, and parallelograms on both the x and y-axes."
Quadrilaterals-parallelograms, rectangles, and trapezoids-are thoroughly introduced in this lesson plan for upper elementary and middle school students. Lots of resources are linked to it to help support the teacher and students. CCSS.Math.Content.3.G.A.1 Understand that shapes in different categories
This lesson plan offers an introduction to sequences. Through the use of computers, students are able to see what happens to the sequences when multipliers and add on values are changed.
In this lesson, students learn about linear functions and how they can be represented as rules and data tables. Includes a worksheet with exploration questions to accompany an interactive Linear Function Machine. The lesson plan is aligned with the NCTM Standards.
This site is a virtual discussion between a teacher and student about probability and outcome. The virtual teacher poses wonderful questions for the students to think about. The virtual students then respond to the inquiries.
This site deals with using a calculator to help solve and evaluate mathematical problems. This site provides a lengthy chart of basic operations performed by calculators, examples of problems to be solved using a calculator, as well as many other examples.
