Rule Time: Salute to BrakesThis project involves a movie that was written by, directed by, and starring Scott Adamson and Trey Cox. The focus of the project is making sense of the idea of quadratic functions from a rate of change perspective. First, watch Part 1 with your class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2huVGJXnH8 Then watch Part 2 after the problem has been resolved. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KStlLsmURcw

Preheating the OvenStudents use rate of change ideas to predict how long it will take for an oven to preheat to 400 degrees. The youtube video may be used to bring drama to the lesson! A link to the video is here and also in the documents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2ooIWFAcII&list=UUiPlxONW80Z8rGpu3lSLwjg

25 billion apps  Dan Meyer Three Act TaskThe question is simple: When should you start bombarding the App Store with purchases if you want to win a $10,000 App Store Gift card? The lesson hooks students immediately with the initial video clip of a “live” counter of current downloads showing the number approaching 25,000,000,000. The mathematics deals with modeling a linear relationship between two quantities

Number Systems  Place ValueExploring different number bases may not only help you if you are needing in some particular application (like computers or electronics), but also in helping you make sense of the number system with which you are most familiar – the base 10 number system.

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.

Proportional Relationships of Triangles  An ActivityThis is a twopart activity and will most likely take two 50  55 minute class periods – one day per part. Part I (Day one) is a handson activity that allows students to work together on computers to discover the proportional relationship between a pair of similar right triangles. Ideally, you will have a class set of computers or a computer lab you could use for this lesson. If you don't have access to these resources you can run a demonstration on one computer and project it for the class and have students come up to manipulate the triangles.

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.

CaptureRecaptureImagine that a city employee is given the task of counting the number of fish in a city pond in a park. The “capturerecapture” method may be used to approximate the number of fish in the pond. The employee could capture a number of fish, say 20, and tag them and release them back into the pond. Waiting until the fish have a chance to become mixed with the other fish in the pond, the employee can capture more fish. If the number of fish captured is 25 and 4 of them are tagged, we can use proportional reasoning to estimate the number of fish in the pond.
