(CCSS: HSF-LE.A.2) This Applications of Exponential Functions Simultaneous RoundTable is designed as a formative assessment to highlight analyzing a relationship modeled by an exponential function. Students construct the exponential function and use it to make a prediction.
(CCSS: 7.RP.A.3) This Solving Multi-Step Ratio Problems Simultaneous RoundTable is designed as a formative assessment to highlight problem solving with proportional relationships. This activity prompts students to determine the unit rate and use it to make predictions for comparison.
(CCSS: HSF-IF.C.7e) This Graphing Exponential Functions Simultaneous RoundTable is designed as a formative assessment to highlight graphing and analyzing exponential functions. Students are given a parent function and use it to display the function numerically and graphically. Students also identify the initial value, classify the function as modeling exponential growth or decay, and determine the percent rate of change.
(CCSS: HSF-IF.C.7e) This Graphing Exponential Functions with Transformations lab activity is designed to be used with technology to investigate the parts of the general equation for exponential functions. Through inquiry, students will observe the effects of a, b, h, and k on the graphs of exponential functions.
(CCSS: HSF-IF.C.7e, HSF-LE.A.2) This Graphing Exponential Functions with Transformations stations activity prompts students through three steps of a task to graph an exponential function with transformations. Students record the final image function and write the equation of the transformed function.
(CCSS: 8.EE.C.8a, 8.EE.C.8b, 8.EE.C.8c, HSA-REI.C.6) This systems of linear equations activity prompts students to match system types and system solutions by inspection or graphically and algebraically with the coordinating record sheet. The cards include systems of intersecting lines, parallel lines, and coinciding lines in a variety of equation forms.
(CCSS: 7.RP.A.2) This Proportional Relationships lesson bundle is designed to help students connect unit rates to proportions by investigating proportional relationships in different representations including table, graph, and algebraic equation.
(CCSS: 7.RP.A.2a, 7.RP.A.2b, 7.RP.A.2c) This activity prompts students to identify proportional relationships and the constant of proportionality through analyzing tables and verbal descriptions. The question cards also require students to write an equation to represent the proportional relationship.
My middle school math students generally encounter a long list of obstacles! These obstacles tend to launch my students onto a rollercoaster of unpredictable results. A clear, stationary target is always easier to hit! And that is exactly why these 10 easy steps to help students set goals can steady the variables that threaten student success. Engage and support your students in SMART goal setting.
(CCSS: 8.NS.A.2) This number sense activity focuses on approximating the value of an irrational number and identifying the approximate location on a number line. This card set can also be used to review simplifying radicals.
