Students will work to solve a problem involving a 30-60-90 right triangle and a constant rate of change to discover how long it will take for dangerous fumes from a car crash to each others on the road.
Students will graph, find the linear regression of and then use the linear regression to make predictions about how many views it would take to become a YouTube millionare.
Students will use data about the cooling time of coffee to create an exponential regression and make estimates about how long the coffee needs to cool to reach a certain temperature.
Students will work to discover linear, quadratic and cubic equations to model the number of cubes with 0, 1, 2 or 3 painted sides when used to build and paint a larger cube.
Students determine how much of each paint color is necessary to paint the room they are in. Students use their knowledge of ratios and area to accomplish this task.
Students are given a figure and asked to use the information provided to extrapolate the equation for the area of a rhombus and kite.
Use this task to build a collaborative classroom culture. Students have the opportunity to build their collaboration, communication and critical thinking using this task. Students will need to build different arrangements of plastic cups using rubberbands and string.
Students use their critical thinking and reasoning skills to determine if a square peg fits better in a circle hole or a circular peg fits better in a square hole. What will they determine?
