It’s All Right: Pythagoras (7-9)

March 27 - April 14

This 3-week module uncovers the mysteries of Pythagoras and the famous theorem named for him. We will investigate how the Pythagorean Theorem provides a vital foundation in 8th grade that progresses into high school geometry. After briefly exploring the history of Pythagoras and his discoveries, we will examine different proofs of the theorem and its converse and discover how right triangles help us understand irrational numbers and distance. Specific goals and activities include the following: Use the Pythagorean Theorem to…

Functions as Objects (HS)

March 27 - April 14

It’s time to fight back against the “function machine”! In this 3-week module we examine functions as objects in their own right, rather than treating them as rules, algorithms, or machines. We will explore Montana’s Common Core Standards for functions in high school with a focus on building functions. Finally, we will extend and complete our investigation with a modeling activity. Specific goals and activities include the following: Redefine it! Develop a fresh understanding of functions as objects that can…
