Modeling Real World Data (Day 1 of 4) - Section 2: Application

Today went quite smoothly and most students didn’t need help with anything. A few students may need to be reminded about the basics of graphing. Some of my students were forgetting breaks in their graphs and were having difficulty determining what to scale their graphs by and where to put which variable. During the class period I was sure to just monitor student progress and if I was seeing mistakes I would stop individual students and have a brief conversation with them about whatever was needed. For the most part, students were asking me the questions today. Most of them just wanted confirmation that they were graphing correctly.

For students who are advancing quickly, push them to find their equation that models the data with no support from you. Tomorrow, students will be provided with some scaffolds to help make this more accessible; however, if kids finish their work today, let them struggle over this for a bit. If they are successful in finding their equation then they will be a great resource for tomorrow to help other students.

# Modeling Real World Data (Day 1 of 4)

Lesson 8 of 15

## Objective: Students will be able to use trigonometric functions to model real world data.

#### Application

*30 min*

I expect students to come to class today with their real world data. After the warm-up,** **students will begin working on their posters. All the expectations and grading details are provided on the Student Handout: Real World Data Project Expectations. I will present page 3 of the flipchart, Day 1 of 4 - Real World Data Trig Project, to set the goals of each class period for the next three days. Today, students should organize and display their data on their poster and make a scatter plot of the information (**MP2**,* ***MP4).**
