Green Science: Investigating green—Creating surveys to answer questions
Being green means different things to different people. Some suggest that being green means saving energy, not wasting paper towels, going solar, harnessing wind, using less fertilizer, or buying products that are organically grown. Given that being green can mean a lot of things, what does “being green” or “going green” mean to both you and your students? To find out, we need to make informed decisions by collecting data. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to become familiar with
Learning about Multiplication Using Dynamic Sketches of an Area Model
Students can learn to visualize the effects of multiplying a fixed positive number by positive numbers greater than 1 and less than 1 with this tool. Using interactive figures, students can investigate how changing the height of a rectangle with a fixed width changes its area.

Function notation is a method for writing functions that is easy to read and understand. This video explains that functions have dependent and independent variables. When function notation is used, the independent variable is commonly x, and the dependent variable is F(x). To write a relationship or equation using function notation, we must first determine if the relationship is a function. (2:04)

This video explains one-sided limits. A limit is the value that a function approaches as the input of that function approaches a certain value. In Calculus, sometimes functions behave differently depending on what side of the function that they are on. By definition, a one-sided limit is the behavior on only one side of the value where the function is undefined. (3:02)
