Zettabytes

8th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Law and Order: Special Exponents Unit

Big Idea:There is an incredible amount of storage space that we incorrectly quantify. The only way to understand these discrepancies is to use exponential notation.

Intro to Stats

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Liars, Darn Liars, and Statisticiansâ¦but stats donât really lie, theyâre just easily manipulated.

Algebra II Jeopardy

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Games

Big Idea:Play Jeopardy to fill those odd days before break or during homecoming week with meaningful mathematical activities like this Jeopardy game.

Margin of Error

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Deputy Dawg is in the lead in the race for dogcatcher with 55% +/- 3%. What does +/- 3% mean and where does it come from?

In the Middle

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea: Too much data! Too many numbers! Use a frequency distribution to find the mean.

What's Normal

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What's normal, anyway? How does being normal have anything to do with mathematics?

How's Your Spread

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:You want me to subtract and square how many numbers?!? Make the process of managing data less crazy using a frequency distribution.

Stats Assessment

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:Did they really get it? What do you need to continue to build? This assessment helps you identify each student's strengths and weaknesses.

Developing Confidence Intervals DAY 1

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics: Single-Variable

Big Idea:Reporting a point estimate along with a margin of error provides much more information than the point estimate alone. We can use simulations to develop a confidence interval.

Review of One-Variable Statistics

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics: Single-Variable

Big Idea:Getting ready for a summative test on one-variable statistics means doing lots of problems and asking questions when you get stuck.

Concentration Statistics

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Games

Big Idea:Use games to fill those odd days before break or during homecoming week with meaningful mathematical activities.

Stats Review

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:TOO MUCH INFORMATION!! That's what my students used to say until I helped them learn how to study.

Developing Confidence Intervals DAY 2

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics: Single-Variable

Big Idea:Reporting a point estimate along with a margin of error provides much more information that the point estimate alone. We can use simulations to develop a confidence interval.

Unit Assessment: One-Variable Statistics

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Statistics: Single-Variable

Big Idea:One-variable distributions can be used to infer unknown characteristics of populations.

Capture-Recapture and an Intro to Probability

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics: Using Probability to Make Decisions

Big Idea:How can probability be used as a tool for counting? How does probability help me if I don't know the size of sample space from which I'm drawing?
