Unit Vectors and Components: Bow and Arrow

For Students 9th - Higher Ed Standards
Aim for a better understanding of vector components. Scholars adjust the angle of release on a bow and determine the horizontal and vertical components of the velocity vector. The pupils finish by determining how the angle affects...
Lesson Planet

Vector Addition

For Students 11th - Higher Ed Standards
View vector addition with a greater magnitude. The interactive provides learners with the opportunity to determine the magnitude of vectors and their resultant vectors when added. Pupils investigate the relationship between the...

Angle-Angle-Side Triangles: Garden Gate

For Students 10th - 12th Standards
Good fences make good gardens. Individuals use an interactive to see how angles and sides relate in a triangular-shaped garden fence. They apply the Law of Sines to find the length of the garden gate (third side of triangle) given two...
Lesson Planet

Determining the Equation of a Line: Trip Functions

For Students 8th - 10th Standards
Let the function drive the activity. The interactive displays the odometer on a car for a trip. Pupils determine and interpret the slope of the situation. Then, they find a verbal description of the equation of the function.
Lesson Planet

Families of Lines: Room in Perspective

For Students 8th - 10th Standards
Get a perspective of lines that share a point. The interactive displays a family of lines that share the same y-intercept. Individuals can find the equations of the lines by moving the line displayed and find what is common about all the...
Lesson Planet

Graphs of Linear Systems: Star Lines

For Students 8th - 10th Standards
Let the class stars shine. Using four given linear equations, scholars create a graph of a star. The pupils use the interactive to graph the linear systems and determine the points of intersection. Through the activity, classmates...

Fitting Lines to Data

For Students 8th - 10th Standards
Scatter the TV sales over weeks. Pupils create a scatter plot to display the number of TV sales over a period of several weeks. The interactive allows class members to create two lines of best fit. Then they determine which line fits...
Lesson Planet

Addition and Subtraction of Polynomials: Sliders

For Students 8th - 10th Standards
Slide the coefficients to determine sums of polynomials. The interactive contains sliders to change the coefficients of an addend in a polynomial addition problem. Pupils determine the coefficients of the addend to arrive at particular...
Lesson Planet

Monomial Factors of Polynomials: Mystery Boxes

For Students 8th - 10th Standards
Shortcut the work in finding total volumes. Pupils determine a polynomial expression that would represent the combined volume of three boxes. Each box has the same height, and the scholars rewrite the expression by factoring out the...
