## Using Slippery Slope to Write an Equation of a Line

- This lesson will review slope, discover what the y-intercept means, and put the two together to create an equation of a line in slope intercept form.

- This lesson will review slope, discover what the y-intercept means, and put the two together to create an equation of a line in slope intercept form.

- The students will take everything that they have learned about linear regression to create a bungee jumping scenario for a Barbie.

- The students should be able to construct the line of best fit given a graph, but not find the equation of a line. They should also be able to identify a positive, negative, or no correlation. Students should also know how to find the equation of a line given two points or the graph of a line.

- This lesson is an introduction to linear regressions. The students will be shown different graphs to figure out what type of regression, if any, they are going to be working with. They will then be taught how to find the line of best fit, given a set of points or a scatter plot.

The students should be able to solve one step equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They should also be able to combing like terms and simplify expressions. This lesson would come after one step equations, and before solving equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign.

- This lesson will teach the kids how to solve equations with variables on both sides of the equation as well as showing the kids how to solve equations where they need to use the distributive property and combining like terms.

This three day lesson for Algebra I, part I students is designed to give concrete experiences in finding volume and surface area of prisms, and the volume of cylinders. Students will work with manipulatives, applets, and equations to be able to calculate of how changes in one attribute of the figure will affect surface area and volume.

Students are exposed to how gears provide torque everyday. From shifting gears while riding a bike or learning to drive a car, gears make work easier.

During this lesson, students will define and identify what gear ratios are and how it can be use. They will use the different size spur gears available in the LEGO system to make working examples of different gear ratios.

Students are exposed to gears everyday. From the buses and cars that deliver them to school to the clocks to that tell them when to leave, gears move and motivate our students. During this lesson, students will learn the four basic functions of gears. They will use the different size spur gears available in the LEGO system to make working examples of each of the four basic functions of a gear.

Students will have the opportunity to create their own energy transformations using a Lego Mindstorms robot, sensors, and the Lego NXT Program. They will then develop an energy transformations practice activity for other students based upon the energy transformations they created for their robot.
