Students will investigate the box office returns and critical acclaim of a set of movies. After gathering their data, they'll graph it on a coordinate plane and look for trends and outliers, and then make a prediction. They'll also create line graphs and use this data to decide if another movie in the series should be made.
In this video, students will calculate the volume of laptops using the formula for the volume of a rectangular prism. First, they'll find five laptops from across history and calculate their volumes. Then, they'll draw them in 3D using some cool grid paper. Students will then explore equivalent volumes before finally building a scale model of a laptop.
How much would it cost to fill up a car with liquids other than gasoline?
Students will produce a multi-line graph, calculate averages, and calculate ranges using positive and negative temperatures.
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.
In this video, students investigate a strange image that asks which has more sugar: a donut or a health drink? What about a salad? Using math and language arts skills, they'll determine if this image shows a complete picture or is misleading.
