In this activity, students find the probability of choosing a particular color M&M given the number of M&M's in their pile. They use these probabilities to solve problems involving proportions as well. Students really enjoy this activity
Students are given a map of a theme park and are asked to use the Pythagorean Theorem and distance formula to find the distance between different rides. They will also use the midpoint formula to calculate the midpoint between two different rides,
This activity allows students to explore how making changes to a quadratic equation in standard form transforms the graph. More specifically, students will identify the change that occurs when they change the a-value and c-value (in ax^2+bx+c).
In this activity, students write fractions to represent the number of Skittles that they have. They will reduce their fractions, convert them to decimals, represent their numbers on a number line, compare their numbers for given colors using <,
