Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Building a Barometer

Forget your local meteorologist — build your own barometer and keep track of the weather with an activity that provides directions to build a barometer out of a narrow necked bottle, a glass, and some water. Using their barometer, teams...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Statistics-Investigate Patterns of Association in Bivariate Data

Young mathematicians construct and analyze patterns of association in bivariate data using scatter plots and linear models. The sixth chapter of a 10-part eighth grade workbook series then prompts class members to construct and interpret...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Bird’s Eggs

Are the length and width of birds' eggs related? Young ornathologists use a scatter plot to investigate the relationship between the length and width of eggs for Mallard ducks. They then determine the egg with the greatest...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Sugar Prices

Sugar rush! In this assessment task, learners interpret points on a scatter plot representing price versus weight for bags of sugar. They then determine the bag that represents the best value.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Middle School Mathematics Test 3

Real-life mathematics is not as simple as repeating a set of steps; pupils must mentally go through a process to come to their conclusions. Teach learners to read, analyze, and create a plan for solving a problem situation. The provided...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Analyzing Scatter Plots

Scatter plots tell a story about the data — you just need to be able to read it! Building from the previous lesson in the series where learners created scatter plots, they now learn how to find associations in those scatter plots. They...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pre-Test Unit 9: Scatter Plots

What do your classes know about statistics? Use a pre-test to determine their background. Topics include scatter plots and lines of best fit, two-way frequency tables, and modeling with linear equations.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Constructing Scatter Plots

Having more letters in your name helps you get a better grade in your math class—or does it? Learners create scatter plots to organize data. The lesson places emphasis on determining scale and intervals and labeling axis.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Wave

Get your classes up and moving and learning math at the same time! Learners collect data on the length of time it takes to complete a wave compared to the number of people participating. They then create a scatter plot, calculate a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Interpret a Scatter Plot by Identifying Clusters and Outliers

Continuing with data from the first video, young graphers will interpret what the points represent. The graph looks at clusters and outliers to determine that doing more homework leads to high test scores.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Construct a Scatter Plot

Teachers know that more homework leads to better test grades, and now your learners watch as data displays the same result. Starting with a review on plotting points, learners then graph the data from a table to determine if the data...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Interpret and Distinguish Linear and Non-Linear Scatter Plots

Data can be displayed in many different patterns, and class members must determine whether the examples are linear or non-linear. The qualities of different graphs are explained as to why they don't fit into the linear model.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Creating a Space Exploration Infrastructure

What will it take to explore space? Teams of pupils determine the needs of a lunar outpost and research the required systems. The pupils then learn about the past space exploration vehicles. The third and final lesson challenges project...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Can You Resist This?

Some things are hard to resist. Small collaborative groups build circuits and calculate the voltage using Ohm's Law. Budding engineers explore the connection between the voltage across different resistors and linear functions with...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### 8th Grade Math "I Can" Statement Posters

Clarify the Common Core standards for your eighth grade mathematicians with this series of classroom displays. By rewriting each standard as an achievable "I can" statement, these posters give students clear goals to work toward...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### 8th Grade Math Common Core Checklist

Ensure your eighth graders get the most out of their math education with this series of Common Core checklists. Rewriting each standard as an "I can" statement, this resource helps teachers keep a record of when each standard was taught,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Vandalism 101

Learners explore logic and use Geometer’s Sketchpad and patterns of logic to solve a puzzle.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Fuel Cell Experimentation

With rising oil prices and increasing concerns over global warming, the pressure is on for engineers to develop alternative sources of energy. Among the new technologies being developed are hydrogen fuel cells, which young scientists...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Animal Brains

Do big bodies make big brains? Let your learners decide whether there is an association between body weight and brain weight by putting the data from different animals into a scatterplot. They can remove any outliers and then make a line...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Birds' Eggs

More than just data, scatter plots are full of information that can be used to answer a variety of questions. This instructional activity uses a plot with information about bird egg sizes to answer questions about the relationship...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Architecture and Construction: Stair Construction

Within the context of the construction industry, algebra pros begin to calculate slope from the sizes of stair steps. This is a terrific lesson, especially for aspiring engineers. Just be aware that it might be a stretch to meet all of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Four Activities Using Straight Line Graphs

This math packet includes four different activities which puts linear equations and line of best fit in the context of real world applications. Each activity uses a different linear math modeling equation and asks the learners to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Curve Ball

Create a Height-Time plot of a bouncing ball using a graphing calculator. Graph height as a function of time and identify the vertex form of a quadratic equation that is generated to describe the ball's motion. Finally, answer questions...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Economic Causes of the March on Washington

Money can't buy happiness, but it can put food on the table and pay the bills. The first of a five-lesson unit teaches pupils about the unemployment rate in 1963 and its relationship with the March on Washington. They learn how to create...
