Maximize Area with 1 Inch Tiles

The following screen cast can be used for a brief overview of task we worked on in class.  This is only the big idea, we discussed more examples, explored ways we could answer the question…What’s the Maximum area for a rectangle with perimeter = ___.
Using our equation from the video, we can see on it fits our width and area scatter plot.


Thursday 9/27/15

We looked at our benchmark scores and set December goals.  See me if you were absent to set your goal.

We visited 7 stations to graph predictions of what we thought the graphs of scoops vs water height might look like.

On your paper #1-7 and sketch your graphs.



Today, Monday 9/22/15 we worked in small groups to dip water, collect data.


Graphing Stories

We began our Functions Unit with this Pre-Activity.

Using 2 colored pencils – you will graph what you think the Graphing Story is, then check your graph and sketch the actual answer onto the same graph.

Here is the file for the graphs.GraphingStories

You can choose 8 videos from Graphing Stories Website to complete this task.

Think about something you would like to video on your own to create your own Graphing Story.

Geometric Sequences Notes 8/31/15 INB 13

Homework for the week 8/31/15 to 9/4/15, click this link: Problem Sets #5 – 8

Do Now:  To begin class this week, we’ll be looking at non-linear visual patterns.

Visual Patterns 2 INB 11

For each VP  Describe the pattern.  Draw the next step.  Create a table for steps 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 and how many blocks needed to create the concrete model.  Either in words or using an algebraic equation, show how to find how many blocks are needed for Step 43.
