This activity integrates internet resources and technology by using online an amortization calculator to calculate monthly payments and interest for a home mortgage. Students also research other costs associated with buying a home, and simulate buying a home by selecting a home on Zillow.com or a r
These simulations come from Nick's book, "You're Gonna Need a Bigger Wallet." The book is available on Amazon for $24, or on TPT for $21 in .pdf format. The .pdf format is more ideal for teachers than the printed copies of the book because it allows for easier access to print the activities and hand
EXPAND THE USE OF SPREADSHEETS IN YOUR PHYSICS CURRICULUM... This Physics activity good for all levels of Physics is a free preview of "The Spreadsheet Lab Manual." It guides students to construct a mathematical simulation starting from a blank spreadsheet that quantitatively models freefall with
This activity guides students to construct a spreadsheet from a blank Excel workbook that will simulate titration of acids or bases.
*Teacher background on Excel is not required*
After constructing the spreadsheet and graphs the students will experiment with the spreadsheet to answer analysi
The general technique for graphing quadratics is the same as for graphing linear equations. However, since quadratics graph as curvy lines (called "parabolas"), rather than the straight lines generated by linear equations, there are some additional considerations.
The most basic quadratic is y = x2
