 Bath Time with Archimedes This algebra lesson helps students make the connection between functions and their graphs. The model of the level of water in a bathtub is used. Students will watch the graph and a chart of the depth of the water at different time increments. They are then asked to identify the events that caused each change in the graph. A student worksheet is available for download here in a Word... http://www.ciese.org/pathways/rwlo/rwlos/10774/Bath%20Time%2...
 Modeling Data- Building Permit Data This lesson uses data from the United States Federal Statistics database to help students in understanding how to determine a mathematical model that best fits a data set. Students will plot building permit data over a period of time for specific cities in the United States. They will also make predictions about the number of permits issued for a particular year. Student materials are available... http://www.ciese.org/pathways/rwlo/rwlos/1/Real%20World%20Le...
 Graphing U.S. Presidential Elections Students in need of experience constructing and interpreting statistical graphs will find this exercise useful. The lesson uses data from past presidential elections; students will construct a variety of graphs (bar graphs, pie charts, stem & leaf plots and box & whiskers plots) based on the data. The interdisciplinary lesson may be used in conjunction with American history or political science... http://www.ciese.org/pathways/rwlo/rwlos/3619/Draft%20RWLO/r...
 Earthquakes! Amplitude and Magnitude Connection This interdisciplinary learning activity illustrates the differences between the amplitude and magnitude of earthquakes in a mathematical context. Students will express earthquake magnitude as a logarithmic function of amplitude and express earthquake amplitude as an exponential function of magnitude. Worksheets are also included in the document. http://www.ciese.org/pathways/rwlo/rwlos/9466/Earthquakes!%2...
 Who Wants to be a Millionaire? This algebra lesson demonstrates exponential growth and decay. The document includes three different ways in which students will retrieve data from the internet, formulate a function, perform calculations and then analyze the results. Worksheets are included in the document. http://www.ciese.org/pathways/rwlo/rwlos/9468/exponential%20...
