ALEX Lesson Plans Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12), or Technology Education (9 - 12) Title: You Mean ANYTHING To The Zero Power Is One? Description: This lesson is a technology-based project to reinforce concepts related to the Exponential Function. It can be used in conjunction with any textbook practice set. Construction of computer models of several Exponential Functions will promote meaningful learning rather than memorization.

As students move the location of the person or change the length of the tube, the image and measurements also change.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 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: Mathematics,Social StudiesTitle: Rates and Taxes      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, from Illuminations, students become familiar with percents and taxes. Students learn how to determine the amount of tax a family must pay based on a certain income.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: 9,10,11,12
