Particle Transport, Samantha Slossar, Jamye Babocsi, Chuck Ko Jun 2015

Particle Transport, Samantha Slossar, Jamye Babocsi, Chuck Ko

Lesson Plans

The particle transport simulation is designed to help students gain a deeper level of understanding of the relationship between velocity and particle size. Students will be able to manipulate the velocity and particle size to see if the particle will move. The mathematical component will require the students to construct a particle graph using the simulator and Earth Science Reference Table (ESRT).


Walking The Graph, Beth Hall Oct 2006

Walking The Graph, Beth Hall

Lesson Plans

Students use the TI-84 Calculators to examine graphs. They will learn about distance between points, time, and increasing and decreasing slopes.


Calculating Slopes, Dave Iacchetta Aug 2006

Calculating Slopes, Dave Iacchetta

Lesson Plans

To teach students the importance of slope in the real world and how it is calculated and utilized in the real world (i.e. ski slopes, soap box derby locations, residential / commercial / agricultural development.


Architectural Design – Roofs And Ramps, Maria Huot Aug 2006

Architectural Design – Roofs And Ramps, Maria Huot

Lesson Plans

Objectives: • To have students design and calculate ramps and roofs controlling slope, as a major constraint in the design process. • To impose a grid on a line to quantify the steepness of a line • To introduce slope as the ratio of the vertical change divided by the horizontal change. • To illustrate the slope characteristic of lines a positive, zero, negative, or undefined (no slope) • To associate the terms with the appropriate graph of a line: increasing, horizontal, decreasing, or vertical. • To observe that the slope of a straight line is constant • To apply these mathematical concepts in the solution of ...


How To Find Slopes With Stella, Ijeoma B. Okafor Aug 2006

How To Find Slopes With Stella, Ijeoma B. Okafor

Lesson Plans

Students will: The coordinate plane, graph the equation of the line y = 2x + 1. From the line, form a triangle, and count the number of square Blocks on the y – axis divide it by the number of square blocks on the x- axis


Slope Slider, Carrie Seitz Aug 2006

Slope Slider, Carrie Seitz

Lesson Plans

Students will be able to

  • Identify the slope and y-intercept in an equation in the form y=mx +b
  • Describe the difference between lines by looking at the slope and y-intercept


Using Stella To Find Rates Of Change And Point Of Intersection, Carrie Seitz Aug 2006

Using Stella To Find Rates Of Change And Point Of Intersection, Carrie Seitz

Lesson Plans

Students will compare logistic and exponential growth and contrast on their similarities and differences.


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


Finding The Slope Of A Line Using Interactivate, Kathyrn Zuroski Jul 2006

Finding The Slope Of A Line Using Interactivate, Kathyrn Zuroski

Lesson Plans

Objectives: How does the slope and y-intercept affect the graph of a line? Using Project Interactivate, what conclusions can you draw about slope, y-intercept and the equation of a line?


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 ...


Hunting Red October With Stella And Project Interactivate, Michael Iodice Jan 2006

Hunting Red October With Stella And Project Interactivate, Michael Iodice

Lesson Plans

The goal is to understand the effects of the variable “m” in the slope formula. The students will command a submarine in the Stella program as a simulated real life activity. It will enable the students to change the slope, or essentially the variable “m”, to move the submarine in a downward negative slope or to return to the surface with a upward, positive slope
