Seeing Math Everywhere We Look |
9 to 9 |

(5.0 stars, 2 ratings) Through an exploration and photographic capture of parabolas throughout our environment. students will move from the “When am I ever going to use this?” to “I see it being used” stage in math class – specifically for quadratic equations. They will then research the related jobs necessary to "bring the parabola to life." |

Smart Jeopardy Review |
9 to 12 |

(5.0 stars, 1 ratings) Using the Smart Board, students will play Jeopardy to review mathematical topics that they have learned. |

Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Substitution |
7 to 12 |

(5.0 stars, 1 ratings) This Algebra I lesson uses SMART Board technology to provide students with a physical sense of the process of substitution and how it can be used in solving a system of linear equations. |

Students Are the Best Teachers |
4 to 12 |

Students will take an active role in the teaching and learning process by creating digital presentations that review basic concepts that are the foundations for all courses. These may include focused mini lessons on such areas as vocabulary, grammar, figures of speech, math problems and concepts, historical events, scientific elements, or technology operations. |

Super Size It, Please! |
10 to 11 |

Hands on math project to help students understand scale factors and ratios using photos of themselves! |

Tablet use in Centers |
P-K to 9 |

(5.0 stars, 1 ratings) Teacher will use a tablet in a center in order to focus student on quick activities centered on one concept. Students will cycle through the 6 centers in groups of 4. |
