  4. Algebraic Reasoning   Learn how to think algebraically with these clever weighing scales. Levels 1 and 2 contain two scales. Level 3 is more difficult and has three scales. Your goal is to determine the weight of one or more of the objects  4 Star
  5. Algebra Puzzle Find the value of each of the three objects presented in the puzzle. The numbers given represent the sum of the objects in each row or column. Sometimes, only one object will appear in a row or column. That makes the puzzle easier to solve. Other times, you will have to look for relationships among the objects.  4 Star
  6. Weigh the Wangdoodles  Your job is to find the weight of each Wangdoodle using the information provided by the scales. To be successful, you will have to make sure that the weight you assign to each Wangdoodle works on each scale. This activity is a fun but challenging introduction to multiple algebraic equations.  4 Star

  3. Amblegraph This online tools lets you create simple bar charts in your web browser. Children can use it for very quick surveys or a teacher can use it to model the construction of a bar graph with a class or group. Most elements are editable
  4. Bar Graph this is an Excel spreadsheet activity for a whole class or individual students. A generic 8 item bar graph can be dynamically altered with custom data and labels.

3. Construct a table of values to solve problems associated with a mathematical relationship.

 

  1. Logic Zoo In this online game the student needs to place fanciful animals into the proper pens at a zoo based on several attributes. The pens are modeled after Venn diagrams.
  2. Venn Diagram Shape Sorter  This online activity has the student sort objects into a Venn diagram based on size, color, and shape. The can either choose the rules and then do the sorting to match, or they can do the sorting to try to discover the rules. very good example

  4.  Use rules and variables to describe patterns and other relationships.

 

  1. Function Machine  This online tool has you put in a number, and then it spits out a result. Your goal is to determine what the function machine is doing to the number. You can choose the type of function it uses or let it be random.
  2. Function Machine  Students investigate very simple functions by trying to guess the algebraic form from inputs and outputs.
  3. Whole Number Cruncher  Similar to the original "Function Machine" but lists input and output in a table and will not let the user attempt to guess the rule on without at least having two data points.
5.     Represent mathematical relationships with equations or inequalities.  

  6.  Describe how a change in one variable affects the value of a related variable; e.g., as one increases the other increases or as one increases the other decreases.

 

 

(E) Data Analysis and Probability Standard

1.             Create a plan for collecting data for a specific purpose.  
2.    Represent and interpret data using tables, bar graphs, line plots and line graphs.

4. Compare different representations of the same data to evaluate how well each representation shows important aspects of the data, and identify appropriate ways to display the data.

 

  1. Comparing Graphs - Excel Activity This is an Excel spreadsheet activity. In it three different sets of data (earnings, votes, heights) are shown with three different types of graphs (line, bar, circle). The student is to compare the different graphs to determine which is the best representation.

5.     Propose and explain interpretations and predictions based on data displayed in tables, charts and graphs.

 

  1. Pie Chart – Explore percentages and fractions using pie charts.
  2. Spinners – Work with spinners to learn about numbers and probabilities.

6.       Describe the characteristics of a set of data based on a graphical representation, such as range of the data, clumps of data, and holes in the data.

9.             Conduct simple probability experiments and draw conclusions from the results; e.g., rolling number cubes or drawing marbles from a bag.
  1. Box Model - Virtual Manipulative This online activity models a probability experiment of pulling numbers from a box. First, the user decides which numbers, and how many of each, are in a box. Then the computer begins randomly drawing numbers and keeping totals. Superimposed can be a graph of the expected theoretical probabilities. This is excellent to show real v. theoretical probability, and the effect of the number of trials on the results.

10.    Represent the likelihood of possible outcomes for chance situations; e.g., probability of selecting a red marble from a bag containing 3 red and 5 white marbles.

 

 

11.    Relate the concepts of impossible and certain-to-happen events to the numerical values of 0 (impossible) and 1 (certain).

 

 

12.  Place events in order of likelihood and use a diagram or appropriate language to compare the chance of each event occurring; e.g., impossible, unlikely, equal, likely, certain.

 

 

13.   List and count all possible combinations using one member from each of several sets, each containing 2 or 3 members; e.g., the number of possible outfits from 3 shirts, 2 shorts and 2 pairs of shoes.

 

  1. Disguise Combos game  In this online interactive game the student determines by experiment how many possible disguise combinations there are, given several pieces to work with. After each round, the mathematical formula for combinations is used for the problem.
