Students explore the properties of angles, search city maps for intersecting streets, and then design their own street intersection.
Students explore the relationship between multiplication and its inverse, division. They will attempt to "undo" multiplication by dividing once, twice, or even three times.
Students uncover patterns with exponents and then make predictions about the powers of 0 and 1.
Using calculators, students will gain familiarity with the patterns that occur when multiplying by decimals. They'll note these patterns and use them to make predictions before checking with their calculator.
In this video, students will investigate how to round to numbers other than multiples of ten. What if we want to round to the nearest 9, 12, 52, or 75?
In this video, students will factor 365 in an attempt to create a better system of months and weeks.
To better understand place value, we venture beyond the decimal number system and explore a Base 9 system. Students will be exposed to ancient Babylon's Base 60 system and computers' Binary and Hexadecimal before creating their own number system!
Students will double a single dollar once per day and discover how long it takes to reach $1 million. Along the way, they'll move from repeated multiplication to using exponents.
