Lesson Plans

Students will discover that:

Waves come in mainly two different types (transverse and longitudinal)

How the type of wave, type of medium, wavelength, temperature, and depth effect the velocity of a wave

This relationship can be used to determine the distances to stars and galaxies beyond 100pc.

Animating Slope And Y-Intercept, Jessica Phillips Jan 2006

Animating Slope And Y-Intercept, Jessica Phillips

Lesson Plans

In 8th grade math, we investigate graphing lines from equations for the first time. Students learn about the xy coordinate plane, the table of values, the slope and the x and y intercepts. They begin to understand y = mx + b, the general equation for a line. As a teacher, I have encountered many problems while teaching this content without the benefits of technology. It’s my goal to teach the effects of changing the slope and the y-intercept. With traditional methods, we create a table of values and draw a graph by hand, which consumes a lot of instructional ...
