Moth Flakes Or Moth Nuggets, Jeff Mckinney Jul 2006

Moth Flakes Or Moth Nuggets, Jeff Mckinney

Lesson Plans

There are several topics being covered in this lesson (lab). The students will receive either moth flakes or moth nuggets. They will chart the freezing of these substances and compare their data with other groups. By creating a graph, students will learn that while a substance is going through a phase change, the temperature of that substance will not change. That is the primary goal of the lesson. Secondary to that is the fact that different substances freeze/melt and vaporize/condense at different temperatures. This illustrates that phase changes are characteristic properties and can help to identify substances as ...


Fruit Fly Population Growth Using Ti Calculator, Samuel Ibezin Jul 2006

Fruit Fly Population Growth Using Ti Calculator, Samuel Ibezin

Lesson Plans

Objective: In this activity, students will enter experimental data from the Fruit Fly Population Growth into TI – 83 Plus calculator and use the information from the data to develop a graph. Draw some conclusions based on the data and the graph.


Graphs On Ti-84, Evan Brauer Jul 2006

Graphs On Ti-84, Evan Brauer

Lesson Plans

Simultaneously graph numerical data from one population with two different graphs on the TI-84+

Concurrently graph numerical data for two populations on the TI-84+

Learn how to best display the graphs on the TI-84+


Linear Regression Using Ti Calculator, Fayne Winter Jul 2006

Linear Regression Using Ti Calculator, Fayne Winter

Lesson Plans

Further Exploration of linear equations and slope. This lesson is to go along with the first lesson plan I created for our 1st assignment using Function Flyer in Interactivate. Students will explore the slope of a line using the TI-83 calculator and will gain an understanding of how the slope of a line changes the look of a line. Students will reinforce their understanding of how to find the slope of a line in different ways


Scatter Plots, Beth Hall Jul 2006

Scatter Plots, Beth Hall

Lesson Plans

Students will be able to collect, organize and create scatter plots of two-variable data and determine the type of correlation the data suggests (positive, negative, none)


Results Of Rolling A Set Of Dice, Sarah Jacka Jan 2006

Results Of Rolling A Set Of Dice, Sarah Jacka

Lesson Plans

We will, as a class, investigate the results of rolling a set of dice. We would like to learn about the outcome when the pair are rolled and their sum is found.

Many students initially predicted that when dice are rolled, each sum from 2-12 is equally likely to be rolled. They assume that since each side of the die has a 1 in 6 chance of being rolled, it would make sense that each sum would have an equal chance at appearing.

We will use many tables, charts and graphs to investigate the students’ claim that each sum is ...


Discovering Sinusoidal Relationship, Wilson Burgos Oct 2004

Discovering Sinusoidal Relationship, Wilson Burgos

Lesson Plans

Students will discover a sinusoidal relationship between variables in a real world problem, discover that changes in the initial velocity have an effect on the graph’s period.


Modeling Real World Problems With Equations, Kim Meek Oct 2004

Modeling Real World Problems With Equations, Kim Meek

Lesson Plans

The students use the TI-84 to create graphs and tables for several power models (y = ax2 , y = ax3 …etc) to learn the general shape of the curves and identify the patterns in the tables. In addition, they compare and contrast these tables and graphs to linear and exponential models. Then, students draw conclusions about the symbolic rules and the patterns found in the graphs and tables.


Potential Energy/Kinetic Energy, David Rogers Oct 2004
