View Resource 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...

View Resource 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...

View Resource 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...

View Resource 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.

View Resource 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.
