Product Description

MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL PROJECTS (Grades 6 – 9)

*** First Quadrant and Four Quadrant Graphs included

This packet contains five basketball themed math activities. When completed they will make great bulletin board displays as well. These projects are ideal for teaching math skills using basketball themed activities. The activities can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows. They also work as extra credit assignments or when there is a substitute teacher.

PROJECTS, MATH LABS and ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:

1. Coordinate Plotting: 3-D Basketball Court (First Quadrant)

2. Coordinate Plotting: Basketball Backboard (Four Quadrants)

3. Geometry Lab: Using a Basketball Court Diagram to base the geometry questions.

4. Basketball Free Throw Percent Math Lab

5. Basketball Field Goal Percent Math Lab

Students will use their knowledge of coordinate graphing and ordered pairs to create drawings with a basketball theme. They will plot ordered pairs and connect them with straight lines. When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.

The Geometry Lab using the basketball court involves diameter, perimeter, circumference, area, lines of symmetry and conversion to metric units.

The Free Throw Percentage and Basketball Field Goal Percentage Labs involves fractions, decimals, and of course percents.

The coordinate projects are for the intermediate to advanced coordinate graphing student. The graphs consist of projects in the first quadrant and all four quadrants using ordered pairs with whole numbers and fractional points using the fractions 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 and 3/4 for detail. Some of them also use fractional points in both the x-coordinate and the y-coordinate.

Instructional Materials Included:

1. Student Directions for Plotting Coordinates

2. Directions for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions

3. Directions for Plotting Coordinates in Quadrant I

4. Directions for Plotting Coordinates in All 4 Quadrants

5. Details for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions in Quadrant I

6. Details for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions in All 4 Quadrants.

Also Included:

1. Coordinate graph paper for plotting (Light and Dark Grids)

2. Coordinate list of points to plot

3. Full sized answer keys

4. Sample of the completed coordinate projects in color and black and white

5. Geometry of Basketball Lab with an answer key

6. Free Throw Percentage Math Lab Sheet

7. Basketball Field Goal Percentage Math Lab Sheet

If you like these projects please let us know. There are over 200 projects, activities and math labs covering the entire school year and some projects which are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, Landmarks, Foreign Language and Science). Lessons begin at 4th grade and are appropriate for the Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.

NCTM Standards

Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems.

Common Core State Standards

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

NCTM Standards

Word problems are included in each strand of the NCTM standards.

Common Core State Standards

MACC.7.G.2.4 Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve

MACC.7.RP Ratios and Proportional Relationships

7.RP.1 Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units.

7.RP.2 Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.
