Open Middle provides math problems that have a closed beginning, a closed end, and an open middle. This means that there are multiple ways to approach and ultimately solve the problems. Open middle problems generally require a higher Depth of Knowledge than most problems that assess procedural and conceptual understanding.

The example of rabbits and foxes was introduced in the task (8-F Foxes and Rabbits) to illustrate two functions of time given in a table. We are now in a position to actually model the data given previously with trigonometric functions and investigate the behavior of this predator-prey situation.

The example of rabbits and foxes was introduced in 8-F Foxes and …

The example of rabbits and foxes was introduced in 8-F Foxes and Rabbits to illustrate two functions of time given in a table. The same situation was used in F-TF Foxes and Rabbits 2 to find trigonometric functions modeling the data in the table. The previous situation was somewhat unrealistic since we were able to find functions that fit the data perfectly. In this task, on the other hand, we do some legitimate modelling, in that we come up with functions that approximate the data well, but do not perfectly match, the given data.

In this task, students use trigonometric functions to model the movement of …

In this task, students use trigonometric functions to model the movement of a point around a wheel and, in the case of part (c), through space (F-TF.5). Students also interpret features of graphs in terms of the given real-world context (F-IF.4).

In this lesson, students will summarize the understanding of trigonometric functions by model periodic phenomena with specified amplitude, frequency, and midline through storytelling.

This lesson is for a math classroom, but can be adapted to fit any grade, subject, or content. In this lesson, students will use an iPad and its features: Keynote, Pages, Garageband, Numbers, Presentation, and iMovie. Students will use 3 of those features/programs to create a video lesson consisting of several examples from a topic of their choice. This project is in place of a term final, so their chosen topic should be from their current term.Image citation: The image is one I created.
