ALEX Lesson Plans Subject: Mathematics (8 - 12) Title: Graphing Stations Description: This activity will be used to review all the forms of linear equations and to review graphing linear, their parallels and their perpendiculars. All the forms of linear equations will be reviewed for testing purposes. Students will participate in a round robin activity to help students master objectives before unit test.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation. Thinkfinity Lesson Plans Subject: MathematicsTitle: Graph Chart      Add Bookmark Description: This reproducible transparency, from an Illuminations lesson, contains the answers to the similarly named student activity in which students identify the independent and dependent variables, the function, symbolic function rule and rationale for a set of graphs.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 9,10,11,12Subject: MathematicsTitle: Graphing What       Add Bookmark Description: This reproducible activity sheet, from an Illuminations lesson, is used by students to record independent and dependent variables as well as the function and symbolic function rule for a set of graphs.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 9,10,11,12Subject: Mathematics,ScienceTitle: Finding Our Top Speed      Add Bookmark Description: This Illuminations lesson sets the stage for a discussion of travel in the solar system. By considering a real-world, hands-on activity, students develop their understanding of time and distance. The mathematics necessary for the lesson relate to measuring time and distance as well as graphing to portray the data collected.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 6,7,8Subject: MathematicsTitle: Exploring Linear Data      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, from Illuminations, students model linear data in a variety of settings. Students can work alone or in small groups to construct scatterplots, interpret data points and trends, and investigate the notion of line of best fit.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 6,7,8,9,10,11,12Subject: MathematicsTitle: Gallery Walk      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students view the work of other students in the class and explain their own work. Students move from graph to graph during this time and, without any talking, view the work of their classmates. While on their Gallery Walk, the students think about the data their classmates plotted and whether or not the information accompanying each graph seems appropriate. Each pair of students then stands next to their own work and explains one of the graphs.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 9,10,11,12Subject: MathematicsTitle: Movement with Functions      Add Bookmark Description: In this unit of 3 lessons from Illuminations, students use movement to reinforce the concepts of linear functions and systems of equations. Multiple representations are used throughout, along with tools such as motion detectors and remote-controlled cars. Students explore how position, speed, and varying motion are reflected in graphs, tables, and algebraic equations.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 6,7,8,9,10,11,12
