How Many Chickens?Farmer Frank raises chickens and pigs. Students are asked to use specific given information to determine how many of Farmer Frank's animals are chickens. This problem will require students to persevere as they apply prior knowledge of fractions, ratios, and percents to algebra concepts such as solving a system of equations.

Solving Systems of Linear EquationsThis is a lesson to introduce the idea of solving systems of equations using graphical methods and substitution. The goal is to help students to make sense of the meaning of the solution to a system and to make sense of what it means to substitute.

Sochi Olympics  Junior High Math ContestThis is the 2013 ChandlerGilbert Community College Junior High Math Contest Team Project. You may use all or just parts of it as it contains lots of different math topics including: The idea of AVERAGE The idea of AVERAGE SPEED and GRAPHS of LINEAR FUNCTIONS The idea of CREATING and INTERPRETING BOX and WHISKER PLOTS The idea of SLOPE The idea of ANGLE The idea of PERCENT Look at the project and decide what parts your students are ready to tackle...and HAVE FUN!

Thinking About ExponentsThe idea of negative exponents and zero as an exponent is a problem that persists with students into a college calculus class. What is, for example, 24 and why? This activity is designed to help students to make sense of exponents from a realworld context. By the way, I plan to follow this up with an extension including rational exponents like 21/2.

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.

Directed Distance  An Introduction to "Graph"This annotated lesson can be used to introduce directed distance and the concept of graph. It can be used as the very first experience students have with graphs, as a review, and/or as an introduction to “circular” coordinates (you can choose to never refer to them as polar coordinates). It is highly interactive and connects the concepts of “new” graphing systems to rectangular coordinates. Initially, there is a brief history given and review of the Cartesian rectangular coordinate system.

Powers of Ten  Number SenseStudents (and adults) have a difficult time trying to grasp very large (and very small) numbers. This activity uses an interesting context (astronomical objects0 to stimulate their interest in modeling enormous distances in a way that can help them understand relative distances. Students naturally arrive at the need for a different kind of number scale than linear and arrive at a "power of ten" (logarithmic) scale. The lesson includes an extension for advanced students ready to begin to investigate logarithms.
