Title: Systems of Linear Inequalities Project
Description: The systems of linear inequalities project was designed to be used in an Algebra IB class after a preliminary lesson on systems of linear inequalities. The project is to be graded per group based on the work completed and presentation to the class. Each group is required to use a graphing calculator in its presentation.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 (8 - 12)
Title: Systems of Equations: What Method Do You Prefer?
Description: The purpose of this lesson is to help students apply math concepts of solving systems of equations to real life situations. The students will use the three methods of graphing, substitution, and elimination to solve the system of equations.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

Title: Shedding the Light
Description: In this four-lesson unit, from Illuminations, students investigate a mathematical model for the decay of light passing through water. The goal of this investigation is a rich exploration of exponential models in context. Students examine the way light changes as water depth increases, conduct experiments, explore related algebraic functions using an interactive Java applet and analyze the data collected.
