Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12), or Technology Education (9 - 12)
Title: Let's Go Hunting!
Description: Students will work in groups of 3 or 4 scouring the campus for items of various shapes, sizes and angles. The items that students will be looking for are outlined on the rubric. Students will use technology to create a creative digital presentation representing all of their captured scenes. Students will work in class to create this presentation and then be prepared to present it on the assigned viewing date.

Subject: Mathematics (8 - 12)
Description: This is an inquiry lesson used to review Algebra 1 objectives by applying them to geometry concepts. Students explore the properties of quadrilaterals and classify them by definition. This lesson can be use in geometry classes. Students in geometry classes can apply theorems and definitions of quadrilaterals rather than as an inquiry lesson.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

Subject: Mathematics (7 - 12)
Title: Trapezoids: What's Equal or Right About Them?
Description: This lesson will examine the properties of two trapezoids - isosceles and right. The lesson will then use the properties to solve deeper analytical problems.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

Subject: Mathematics,Social Studies
Title: Hospital Map Activity Sheet
Description: This student reproducible, from an Illuminations lesson, contains a map of the area wherein students must choose a location to build a new hospital so it is equidistant from Boise, Idaho; Helena, Montana; and Salt Lake City, Utah. Students do their work on a blank transparency and overlay their work onto this map.

Title: Flip that Angle
Digital Tool: iFlashcards
Digital Tool Description: iFlipflashcards is a flashcard application developed as an Android application that is available in the Google Play store. This application allows users to create their own digital definitions, images, and graphs on flashcards that are accessible anywhere at the click of a button. iFlipflashcards also allows users to turn their digital flashcards into practice quizzes that the application keeps data on as the flashcards are used. This application is a good resource to use when teaching angles. It allows graphed angles (obtuse, acute, right) to be loaded onto a digital flashcard with the definition of the type of angle and why the displayed angle is considered the angle that it is labeled. This allows students to practice the terms that were learned during a lesson on angles at anytime.

Subject: Mathematics
Title: IGD: Perpendicular Bisector
Description: This student interactive, from Illuminations, helps students understand and investigate perpendicular bisectors, which are lines perpendicular to a segment that divide it into two congruent segments. Students read a definition and then construct a perpendicular bisector of a segment using the interactive tool.
