Subject: Mathematics
Title: Escape from the Tomb Activity      
Description: This reproducible activity sheet, from an Illuminations lesson, includes instructions and questions for a mathematical adventure game. In the game, students are given a problem in which two bowls are suspended from the ceiling by springs, and one bowl is lower than the other. Students must work out how many items should be placed in each bowl so that the heights of the bowls are the same.

Subject: Mathematics,Science
Title: Whelk-Come to Mathematics     
Description: In this four-lesson unit, from Illuminations, students make a conjecture, conduct an experiment, analyze data and work to a conclusion using rational functions to investigate the behavior of Northwestern Crows. Sea gulls and crows feed on various types of mollusks by lifting them into the air and dropping them onto a rock to break open their shells. Biologists have observed that northwestern crows consistently drop a type of mollusk called a whelk from a mean height of about 5 meters. Students investigate the relationship between the height of the drop and the number of drops.
