Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Mathematics

CPCTC Lesson - Congruent Parts of Congurent Triangle

In this lesson, students will learn how to use the CPCTC theorem (Congruent Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent) in order to complete a proof. They will first use one of the 5 triangle congruence theorems (SSS, SAS, AAS, ASA, HL) in order to use the CPCTC. It is a great lesson putting together everything they have learned thus far in the unit.

Rationalizing the Denominator Lesson

In this lesson, students will learn how to rationalize the denominator and will be re-introduced to the idea of a conjugate and also imaginary numbers. By the end of the lesson, they should be able to rationalize a denominator even if it contains complex or imaginary numbers.

Content Area:

Natural Logs Lesson

In this lesson, students will learn about the number e as well as the 3 rules (product, quotient, power) and how to use them to condense and expand expression using natural logs.

Test Review Day Worksheet

Students will review how to rationalize the denominator, graph polynomial functions, write exponential growth/decay functions, use rules to re-write log and natural log expressions, use synthetic or long division to divide two polynomials, and how to graph a log function.

Graphing Transformations Lesson

In this lesson, students will either learn or remind themselves how to graph a transformation. Students should be introduced to this in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, and I used this as a short review day in Pre-Calculus.

Geometry: Constructing the Incenter and Circumcenter

A blended unit in High School Geometry. Students learn to construct the incenter and circumcenter of a triangle in two different ways and then learn about inscribed and circumscribed circles.

Content Area:

Identifying odd/even numbers and learning basic addition/subtraction facts

The teaching and learning for this unit will be both face to face, as well as online. For young students, it is important to find the proper blend of both types of teaching/learning. Students will be not only learning which numbers are odd and even, but how to identify them and explain how they know they are odd or even.

Understanding Subtraction...Finding the Missing Part

This unit explores the introduction into Subtraction using the Common Core Format (Whole-Part-Part/Missing Part) and higher level thinking. This unit is being developed because I have found that it is a hard transition for students to go from addition to subtraction. Some portions will not be accessible as it is for District Supported Accounts through our Math Curriculum, Pearson envisionMath.
