 Graphs from the Unit Circle This lesson from Illuminations teaches students the features of sine and cosine graphs. Students use uncooked spaghetti to demonstrate the properties of the unit circle, which they will then represent with graphs. It is intended for students who have already learned about unit circle trigonometry, and is best for upper level high school classes. The lesson should require 3 class periods to... http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=2870
 Embroidered Math This lesson from Illuminations introduces students to to basic graph theory and Euler circuits. Students will gain hands on experience using graphs. The lesson involves sketching graphs that have Euler paths and circuits. The activity is intended for grades 9-12 and should require 1 class period to complete. http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=2995
 Growth Rate This lesson from Illuminations uses growth charts for girls and boys to examine rates of change. The material uses slope to approximate the rate of change in height. Students will learn how to translate this data into a graph. The lesson is appropriate for grades 9-12 and should require 1 class period to complete. http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=2265
 Hanging Chains This lesson from Illuminations uses the real world example of hanging chains to demonstrate how naturally occurring shapes relate to parabolic functions. Students will learn to substitute points on a graph into a function form to find the equation of a graph. The lesson includes discussion questions and is appropriate for grades 9-12. It should require 1 class period to complete. http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=2105
 Undergraduate Seminar in Discrete Mathematics This course, presented by MIT and taught by Daniel Kleitman, provided instruction on combinatorics, graph theory and discrete mathematics. The main content provided online is a sample final paper project assignment. Examples of several student projects for that assignment are included. MIT presents OpenCourseWare as free educational material online. No registration or enrollment is required to... http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-304-undergraduate-...
