Product Description
Welcome to Explorations from Make It Real Learning (MIRL).

MIRL is helping students answer the “why” of mathematics through a collection of engaging real-world math activities that give you the tools to answer the question, “when am I ever going to use this?”

Explorations extend the standard MIRL two-page math activity into a much larger investigation of the mathematics of a topic. Explorations are ideally suited for group work, individual work, or even group competitions.

This Exploration activity includes a student version of the activity as well as a teacher edition, complete with worked-out solutions and Common Core Standards mapping.

Explorations are intended to enhance, support, and be used alongside existing curricula. Explorations reinforce mathematical concepts learned prior to completing the activity.

Focusing on these areas:
- Problem solving and making sense
- Computing rates
- Using rates to create graphs
- Modeling with mathematics
- Working with very large and very small numbers
- Working with exponents
- Looking for patterns
- Creating formulas
- Converting units in the context of a word problem
- Communicating effectively using mathematical ideas

Included in this Exploration:
(Note: This is a zipped folder of three PDF files. Most operating systems can handle zip files just fine.)
- Student edition of the Petabyte Exploration activity. (20 pages)
- Teacher edition of the Petabyte eXpLoration activity. (21 pages)
- Worked-out solutions. (Teacher edition only)
- Common Core Standards (Common Core Standards and Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices). (Teacher edition only)
