- HSG-MG.A.1Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder).*
- HSG-MG.A.2Apply concepts of density based on area and volume in modeling situations (e.g., persons per square mile, BTUs per cubic foot).*
- HSG-MG.A.3Apply geometric methods to solve design problems (e.g., designing an object or structure to satisfy physical constraints or minimize cost; working with typographic grid systems based on ratios).*

Border Tiles: Seeing Structure in Algebraic Expressions

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Multiple Representations: Situations, Tables, Graphs, and Equations

Big Idea:Don't count! Students find different approaches for counting tiles around a garden and then write rules that represent their methods.

Maximizing Volume - Day 1 of 2

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Functioning with Functions

Big Idea:A classic maximization problem is used to investigate relative extrema.

Constructing Viable Arguments

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Preparing for the Geometry Course

Big Idea:In this lesson, students will engage with Mathematical Practice 3 by investigating how to best arrange trapezoidal desks in a classroom.

Circles Assessment

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Circles

Big Idea:Students will complete a problem set of challenging application and proof based circle problems.

Geometric Modeling: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Day 1

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Geometric Modeling

Big Idea:Students solve problems involving measurement based on information from the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Maximizing Volume - Day 2 of 2

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Functioning with Functions

Big Idea:A classic maximization problem is used to investigate relative extrema.

Arabic Surveying Project

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Sweet Similar Shapes

Big Idea:Students will delve into the past, and use similar triangles just like ancient Arabs did to find the height and distance of real-world objects.

Is John Guilty

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Trigonometry as a Real-Valued Functions

Big Idea:By analyzing data from an accident students will determine whether a driver was speeding when he wrecked his vehicle.

Geometric Modeling: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Day 2

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Geometric Modeling
