Big Idea:What happens to the patchwork pieces needed to create these designs as the size of the designs increases? Students jump right into problem-solving with the Practice standards on their first day!
Big Idea:Let's look at number patterns and geometric structure. Some students will look at number sequences to generate rules while others dig into the geometric structures. Great opportunity to explore equivalent expressions!
Big Idea:As the temperature increases on a sunny day, what happens to the number of people on a beach? Students analyze and discuss graphs in pairs to develop ideas about what makes a relationship linear.
