Steeper, Faster, Division, and SlopeWhat does "steeper" mean? What does "faster" mean? And how do these ideas connect to the idea of linear functions? This 3part series explores these questions and helps students to understand why we divide when computing slope and what proportional correspondence has to do with it all!

Number Sense: Getting a Feel for "BIG" numbersGood number sense is fundamental for success in estimation, approximation, and problem solving. We need to develop a sense of large numbers because newspaper and television news reports contain many references to large quantities. This activity has students working with large numbers to understand their relative magnitudes.
