Technical and Procedural STEM LessonsLesson Planet
1st - 6th CCSS: Designed
New ReviewTechnically, the resource is great. A curriculum support document provides instructors with suggestions for STEM activities. The file is broadly split into three parts: technical procedural lessons, which focus on electrical circuits;...
Whole Number Exponents: Teddy Bear BoxLesson Planet
3rd - 6th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewFive questions—multiple-choice, fill in the blank, and discussion—make up an interactive that challenges scholars to mail a teddy bear using the smallest box possible without squishing it. A box with movable sides allows mathematicians...
Maker projects & 3D ShapesLesson Planet
3rd - 11th
The study of three dimensional objects can bring out the natural maker and builder in your students. This collection explores three dimensions through the use of maker projects, 3-D nets, and studies of area and surface area. The cardboard challenge is an annual contest that motivates students to use their imaginations and explore construction and three dimensional objects in unique ways. Incorporate lessons on visual thinking, nets, surface area, and volume, etc. so that learners expand their true understanding of the relationships between them.
Volume of Cuboids and CubesLesson Planet
2 mins 6th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Turn up the volume. After identifying the three dimensions of a prism, the presenter gives the formula for finding its volume. Using the formula, the video shows pupils how to find the volume of a rectangular prism and a cube. Classmates...
Proportional ScalingLesson Planet
4 mins 6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
It is not as simple as scaling. MIT researchers explain that a micro engine cannot just be a proportional scaling of a working larger engine. The Math at the Core: Ratios resource compares the proportions involved with the surface area...
Direct ProportionLesson Planet
8 mins 6th - 9th CCSS: Adaptable
Direct change by finding the constant. Using two known values within a direct proportion, the resource shows how to find the constant of proportionality. Once individuals do that, they then find any value given the other. The video works...
The Six Faces of AmzoraLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Here's a task that is out of this world! Given a description of a fictional cube-shaped planet, scholars answer a set of questions about the planet. They create a two-dimensional map and consider the distances between locations on the map.
Multiplication Table AlgebraLesson Planet
8th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Patterns, patterns, everywhere! Young scholars examine the multiplication table to identify patterns. Their exploration leads to an understanding of the difference of squares and sum of cubes by the completion of the algebra project.
Boxed In and Wrapped UpLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
If cubes have the smallest surface area, why aren't there more cube-shaped packages? Scholars take a box in the shape of a rectangular prism, cut it up, and make new boxes in the shape of cubes with the same volume. They then brainstorm...
Algebra Expressions with Exponents: Fish Tank CubeLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
There's nothing fishy about this resource. A slider interactive lets users adjust the side length of a fish tank cube. It aids in seeing changes in the volume and how to express the volume using an algebraic expression.
Geometry: Visualize Relationships Between 2-D and 3-D ShapesLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Slice and dice like a master mathematician. Scholars determine and draw three possible cross-sections of a cube. Given a solid shape removed from a three-dimensional figure, they describe two viable original figures.
Determining Surface Area of Three-Dimensional FiguresEngageNY
6th CCSS: Designed
Cast a net over the formulas for surface area. Pupils use nets to develop surface area formulas in the 19th segment in a 22-part series. They first see the patterns of similar calculations in finding the area of the faces of rectangular...
Sum and Difference of Cubes: Stacking BlocksLesson Planet
9th - 11th CCSS: Designed
Investigate polynomial factoring patterns by finding a connection to volume. As learners build a three-dimensional solid from smaller solids, they convert the visual model to a mathematical expression. Their models represent the sum of...
End-of-Module Assessment Task: Grade 6 Math Module 5EngageNY
6th CCSS: Designed
Assess the class' ability to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume with a six-question assessment that presents problems covering aspects of calculating measurements of 2-D and 3-D figures. Class members use the...
