### Mixing Orange Juice

6-8

This lesson is based on the *MTLT*article, "

*One Task, Multiple Proportional Reasoning Strategies*" by Aaron Brakoniecki, Julie M. Amador, and David M. Glassmeyer. In this lesson, students compare multiple reasoning strategies across ideas focused on proportional reasoning.

### 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!

### 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. ### Crack the Code: Algebraic Generalizing with Manipulatives

6-8

Students us linking cubes and color rods to generalize patterns through differentiated game play.### Surface Area of Plastic Items

6-8

In this lesson, students will use a Geogebra applet to explore the net of a right cylinder and learn why the surface area of a right cylinder is made up of a rectangle and two circles. Students will then measure the dimensions of a familiar plastic item and approximate its' surface area.
