Count on Math 1: Every Breath You Take
ORC# 4373
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: In this first of two lessons on developing number sense, each student estimates the number of times s/he breathes in one hour, and the class graphs the estimates, finds the mean and median estimates, and discusses outliers. Students then explore how they might estimate the number of times they breathe in one day and how they...

Playing Games: The Celebrated Jumping Frog
ORC# 4221
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Using the story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" by Mark Twain, students simulate a frog jumping contest and measure the distances "jumped." The students record the distance of individual jumps in centimeters and determine the total distance jumped (the sum of the three separate jumps) and the official distance (the straight-line distance from the...

Numerical and Categorical Data 3: Comparing Categorical and Numerical Data
ORC# 393
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: In this third lesson (in a unit of three) students compare categorical and numerical data by identifying examples of each, using graphs they created in parts 1 and 2 of this unit. Students first analyze the appearance of the two graphs....
