How to Use an Architect's Scale
Learn how to use an architect's scale and how scale effects the size of a drawing, the detail it shows and the number of notes that can be made. This is the last part of a series on what instruments architects use. The 2:26 long video explains various scales and how they are used. Video moves rapidly and so students should have the ruler with them as well as a floor plan.

Using NBA Statistics for Box-and-Whisker Plots
In this lesson, students use information from NBA statistics to make and compare box-and-whisker plots. After reviewing the concepts of minimum, maximum, median, upper quartile and lower quartile, students create three box-and-whisker plots for sets of data on the heights and weights of basketball players. In each case, the students consider the effects of changing one piece of the data, such as eliminating the height of the tallest player. Detailed instructions for the lesson, assessment option
Every Breath You Take
In an activity designed to help students develop 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 of the estimates, and discusses outliers. Students then brainstorm how they could find out how many breaths a person actually takes in a day—and implement their strategies.
Accessing and Investigating Population Data
In this activity, students investigate population projections from 1990-2100 using data from the U.S. Census Bureau Web. Using the five specific population pyramids, students investigate population projection data for the United States over a 110-year period. They examine how the population data is distributed over time and explain what factors might contribute to these trends. An activity sheet and thoughtful questions, included in the lesson plan, guide the class investigation.
Problem solving is the thought processes involved in solving a problem. It is both a means of developing students' knowledge of mathematics and a critical outcome of a good mathematics education. A mathematical problem, as distinct from an exercise, requires the solver to search for a method for solving the problem rather than following a set procedure. Mathematical problem solving, therefore, requires an understanding of relevant concepts, procedures, and strategies. To become good problem solv
Students are given the timetables of two trains, each going along the same route, but one coming and the other going. Carefully crafted questions ask students to create and analyze a graph of position vs. time for one train, then to explain mathematically the ways a graph of the other train’s run should resemble the first graph. Finally, they create the second graph and try to explain the unexpected discrepancies between the two graphs. A full solution and scoring rubric are included.
A Whole-School "Read" Creates a Reading Community
A whole-school read solved a potentially disruptive problem by providing a common reading experience that addressed student diversity through a school-wide, interdisciplinary, year-long event at Hand Middle School.
This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. This online resource guide focuses on earth/physical science including volcanic island formation and tsunamis; life science concepts including ocean ecosystems, food webs, and biodiversity; science in personal and social perspectives including pollution
Mathematics as Communication
This grades 6-8 activity focuses on interpreting and creating graphs that are functions of time. Two activity sheets focus on graphs of time vs speed; two others look at how many times an event occurred in a specific amount of time. Inventing stories to correspond to the graphs is challenging but fun!
