Project is divided into four different sections. The first is the creation of a catapult, which my students made out of Popsicle sticks and rubber bands. The second is a paper which requires students to explain the mathematics behind a catapult. The
Students will do a discovery lab with M & M's that ask them to compare their results to the decline of a species with the real decline of silverback gorillas. Allows students to combine mathematics and biology in class.
Want to introduce your students to the probability of something happening? Want to peak their interest before you start a probability unit? This experiment based activity allows students to find the probability of something happening while having
This project has 5 parts which I break up throughout our systems of linear equations unit. Students will build a rubber band powered car, create an equation for it, solve for where their equation would intersect another teams, and watch them collide
Include differentiation in class by allowing students to pick the activities they want to do! They must complete 3 in a row (across, down, or diagonally). This tic-tac-toe is on properties of polygons.
Students will do a discovery lab with M & M's that ask them to compare their results to what is happening in the world with HIV. This lab allows teacher to bring globalization and sociology into the classroom.
