In this module, students explore algebraic expressions to model different quantities. They look at expressions that involve addition and multiplication. Then they look at real world data from the Star Wars movies since the Disney acquisition of the franchise. Students analyze whether the purchase of the Star Wars franchise has been profitable for Disney.
In this lesson students explore and use the properties of isosceles triangles to solve real world problems. After learning the basics of isosceles triangles they apply what they learn to the structure of the Eiffel Tower. In particular, they learn about triangular trusses.
In this lesson students learn how to use the slope formula to calculate steepness. In particular, students learn how to calculate steepness in the context of cycling. Cyclists use a measure called grade to calculate the steepness of a hill or mountain. Students apply their knowledge of slope to the concept of grade.
