This Week in Math - Function Madness

This week the students will be exploring how Saber Metrics can help us predict the outcome of events over time.  One way we see this play out in the real world is with the game of baseball and the concept of Sabermetrics.

To explore how this relates to what we are studying is to apply our Math Functions we are learning in class.  Each student/Pair of students will be drawing one of the Match Ups from this weeks NCAA March Madness.  They will then be applying Sabermetrics to their match up to evaluate what team has the best opportunity to win based upon a number of factors.

They will then take this data and place it in a poster that will be due at the end of the week.  All Work will be contained in the poster.

Below are the Character Strong Lessons we will be working through this week too!

Today in Lab - Lessons 3-5, Evaluating Functions, Sharpening Skills

Today the students will be participating in 1 of 3 labs depending on their grouping.

Lab Station 1:  Open Up Resource Book Lessons 3-5

The students are exploring lessons 3-5 where they will gain knowledge of Independent Variables, Dependent Variables, and what makes a function a function.  They will be responsible for the practice problems of lesson 3 and 4 this week.

Lab Station 2:  Character Strong and Evaluating Functions

The students will practice evaluating functions for the given variables.  They will also start to explore some of the Character Strong Curriculum that we are piloting in my classroom.  We will be exploring the importance of relationships.

Below is a tutorial for review

Lab Station 3:  More on Functions, Sharpening Skills, and Quizizz.

In lab station three the students will be working through 3 stages on the computers.

Station 1 :  Play Posit 

Station 2:  Khan Academy Practice.  Students will need to log into their Khan Academy accounts through the Clever Portal and complete their 2 practice sets.
