Looking for novel way to get your middle school students excited about math and statistics?!
This file contains everything you need to conduct the experiment (except the Tootsie Pops!) that answers the age old question "How many licks does it take to get the center of a tootsie pop?" The lesson cov

Students will get to experience a hands on activity demonstrating exponential growth and decay. Students will model the activity with string, graph, write equations, and answer discussion questions.
In this activity, students will use a 16 inch piece of string to model both exponential growth funct

Are you the type of teacher who will go that extra mile to get your students involved. Then have I got a lab for you! Build and launch water rockets to help your students connect with quadratics and the vertex formula.

Students love hands on learning. Help your students understand and remember the Pythagorean Theorem by having them do this lab.
Students will work in teams to use PCV pipes, tape measures, and calculators to determine the height of tape marks the teacher has placed high on a school wall.

My favorite investigation! This lab gets students actively involved in collecting data and using their basic skills. This is what math class should look like! Students will build a simple water dripping apparatus to collect data, graph, write a slope-intercept equation for the line of best fit, a

This is a discovery activity that will guide your students to deriving the distance formula using the Pythagorean Theorem. This is a partner activity that is an introduction before you give notes.

This lab is designed to give students a hands-on introduction to exponential growth and decay functions and their graphs.

A full description of this lab is free to download on TCP under my other listings. This is printable lab worksheet for students to use for the Human Body Proportions Lab.
This is an EXCELLENT lesson that both you and your students will enjoy.

After teaching my students about scatterplots, correlation, and the line of best fit, I take a day for them to do a hands-on lab, in which they measure their height (in inches) and their forearm length (from the tip of their elbow, to the bony point on their wrist), and we plot the class data, write

In this activity students work with a partner to roll a pair of dice (many times) and record the sum of the dice in a data collection sheet. Once the data has been collected the students are walked through the process of calculating the experimental probability for each sum and then the theoretical

Students use their arm-span and heights to create a scatter plot and linear regression to find the equation for a line.

This lab guides students through two of the algebra virtual manipulatives (applets) from the nlvm website: Algebra Balance Scales and Algebra Balance Scales - Negatives. These virtual manipulatives are a great way for students to explore solving two-step equations with positive and negative coeffici

Through this activity students will discover properties of parabolas while comparing the parabola they all carry around with them every day - their dental arch. Students will brainstorm ways to measure a dental arch and ultimately take an "impression" of their arch by taking a bite out of a slice o

Three things come to mind as to why I wrote this activity...
First, students are petrified of word problems. I wrote this activity to give students experience with solving applications of the quadratic. Second, I want students to demonstrate their ability to use four different methods to solve qu

Students will add golf balls to a cylinder of water to measure the increase in water height. They will do this with two different trials, write equations, and compare changes in slope and y-intercepts. The final challenge is to predict the exact number of golf balls needed to overflow the water! Cal
