At the beginning of the year Students are introduced to goal setting using a S.M.A.R.T goal framework (PLPs). Based on the specific goal, students choose an “accountability partner” with whom they will practice and hold each other accountable for practice during and outside of school.
Students have already had experience with patterns of numbers when studying linear, quadratic, and exponential functions in both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. This is their first introduction to the formal notation used for sequences and summation notation for series. Students will explore series and summation notation.

In this part of the unit on ratios and proportions, students will use ratio language to write ratios in a real-world context. They will be architects who are designing an amusement park, an aquarium research center, or a baseball stadium. Students will write equivalent ratios and use them to make their building a physically safe space that meets all building requirements.

This unit was developed to introduce basic multiplication skills to third graders. Students will have an opportunity to use technology to learn basic facts. Games, on-line assessment and self check quizzes are apart of the unit. I have added getahoot.com so students can practice learning their facts in a fun way.
