Mathematics

This unit builds on the student's prior learning of how to find a rule that takes a given input value to exactly one output value. In this unit students will be able to identify when a relation is a function and use proper vocabulary (domain and range) and function notation as well as notation for domain and range.

In this unit, students build on their prior work with area and explore ways to find the area of rectangles with fractional side lengths. Students also learn about volume as an attribute of solid figures. Using improvised units, they explore volume and build toward using cubic units and volume formulas.

Students have mastered solving equations and looking at solutions graphically. This unit is an extension and will have students investigate how to find to two equations. This unit will utilize investigate and exploration,  with some direct instruction, to solidify the process and procedures to finding and identifying solutions to systems.

This is a unit that formalizes the definition of functions. Students will connect the idea of mathematical relationships to the concept of functions. With a mix of direct instruction, guided notes with procedural practice, and individual practice, this unit will ground students in the concept and provide a deep understanding of its usefulness.
