### Count on Math

3-5, 6-8

Develop number sense through activities involving collection, representation, and analysis of data.

### Information Represented Graphically

Pre-K-2, 3-5, 6-8

Participate in activities to analyze information represented graphically.

### Exploration of a Balance

Pre-K-2, 3-5, 6-8

Focus
on patterns and relations
that can be developed from the exploration of balance, mass, length of
the mass arm, and the position of the fulcrum.### Sickle Cell Anemia Inheritance

6-8, 9-12

In this lesson,
students explore the concept of genetics and inheritance. The lesson focuses on
sickle cell anemia, a genetic disease that is dependent on a recessive
trait. Students will perform data collection and analysis of the probability
of a child of two sickle trait parents inheriting sickle cell anemia. To do
this, they play a game that models how the inheritance of a disease works from
parents’ genes. Later, students construct family trees with probability to
determine the genotypes of family members.### Algebraic Transformations

6-8

Create
a shape sorter and consider all possible moves that will return a shape to its
original position.### Area Formulas

6-8

Use
the area formula for a rectangle to discover the area formulas for triangles,
parallelograms, and trapezoids. ### Corner to Corner

6-8

Use pattern recognition to determine the length of a diagonal of a square, and attempt to discover the Pythagorean Theorem.

### Counting the Trains

6-8, 9-12

In this unit, students will investigate a relationship between recursive functions and exponential functions.

### Everything Balances Out in the End

6-8

Use
a pan balance to study equality, order of operations, numerical and variable
expressions, and other key algebraic concepts.
