In this math exercise, you’ll find a lesson plan that explains how quadratic equations can be solved using the zeroes form and the vertex form along with tips on a follow-up lecture to help students check their work. The grade level is approximately 9th grade.
There are many ways to use the interactive tools of a SMART Board to teach math. Let’s review some of the best ways to leverage this technology.
If your students are already adept at solving basic quadratic equations by hand, it’s only fair you now teach them a way in which they can solve graphic equations using the graphing calculator’s intersection finder.
This article is of a lesson plan that shows students how to solve systems of equations using the substitution method and the intersection method on the graphing calculator.
Let’s share a lesson plan focused on teaching high school students (9th-10th grade) the rectangular coordinate system (e.g., the x,y plane), the distance formula, and the midpoint formula.
Most students like using mnemonics to help them remember things. Use this silly little jingle to help your students remember the primary trig ratios.
This is a fun geometry based lesson. The increase in scale during the project helps solidify spatial awareness and measurement estimation. Throughout the project students will learn to use alternative tools to complete their assignments, ie… string in place of a compass.
This is a fun little geometry activity that should help students understand the importance of using deductive reasoning skills - and see why proofs aren’t useless after all.
