Geometric Reflections

6-8
This lesson is based on the MTLT article, “Geometric Reflections: Why Should They Not Be Just a Flip?” by Dawn Teuscher, Shannon Dingman, Travis Olson, and Lisa Kasmer. In this lesson, students reflect points and figures to formulate a mathematical definition of reflection. Then, they identify and justify whether points and figures are reflections!

Conditional Reasoning Online with Mastermind

6-8
This lesson is based on the MTLT article, “Conditional Reasoning Online with Mastermind” by Sean P. Yee, George J. Roy, and LuAnn Graul. This lesson engages students in using deductive and inductive reasoning as they play a game called Mastermind.

Model Application Activity (MAA)

3-5, 6-8
This lesson is based on the MTLT article, “Developing Statistical Modeling with Helicopters” by Katie Makar, Sue Allmond, Helen M. Doerr, and Robert C. delMas. In this lesson, students design a way to collect evidence of flight durations based on two types of paper helicopters.

Model Exploration Activity (MXA)

3-5, 6-8
This lesson is based on the MTLT article, “Developing Statistical Modeling with Helicopters” by Katie Makar, Sue Allmond, Helen M. Doerr, and Robert C. delMas. This lesson engages students in a model exploration activity to explore dot plots using a paper helicopter investigation.

Model Eliciting Activity (MEA)

3-5, 6-8
This lesson is based on the MTLT article, “Developing Statistical Modeling with Helicopters” by Katie Makar, Sue Allmond, Helen M. Doerr, and Robert C. delMas. This lesson engages students in a model eliciting activity to investigate how long a paper helicopter stays in the air.

Neutralizing Reactions and Inverses

6-8
In this lesson, students will integrate science and math, exploring how neutralization reactions can help us understand that the sum of any number and its additive inverse is zero.

Frustration: Analyzing a Card Game with Probability

6-8
This lesson engages students in the joy of mathematical inquiry through a game, while building number sense, understanding of uncertainty, statistical reasoning, and discourse skills. Students will explore the ideas of experimental and conditional probability through the card game, Frustration

Crack the Code: Algebraic Generalizing with Manipulatives

6-8
Students us linking cubes and color rods to generalize patterns through differentiated game play.

Math Metaphors

6-8, 9-12
In this lesson, students create metaphors to capture and explore their experiences as learners of mathematics with respect to their identity, sense of agency, and emotions.

Supporting Black Students’ Mathematical Identity

6-8, 9-12
In this lesson, students will explore the historical and contemporary contributions of the continent of Africa, which includes its resources and people. Through engaging activities and discussions, students will develop a strengthened mathematical belonging by connecting with the rich heritage of Africa, fostering a sense of pride and recognition in their own black identity.
