4434Decimal Place Value StAIR
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=554351
This is a stand-alone instructional resource for use in an elementary classroom (grades 3-5). It reviews decimal and whole number place value. The presentation requires input from the learner and provides feedbak based on this input.Double Bar Graph elementary lesson and activity
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=641835
This is an activity to teach third-fifth grade students learn how to conduct a survey and create a double bar graph on their own. They will also input their information into a computer program that will generate a graph. They will use a tally table for their survey.GeoGebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=436264
Algebra and Geometry shape and graph maker. Multi-use.Description by developer:GeoGebra is dynamic mathematics software for all levels of education that joins arithmetic, geometry, algebra and calculus. It offers multiple representations of objects in its graphics, algebra, and spreadsheet views that are all dynamically linked. Grid and Percent It
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=449423
In this lesson, students use a 10 × 10 grid as a model for solving various types of percent problems. This model offers a means of representing the given information as well as suggesting different approaches for finding a solution. This lesson is adapted from "A Conceptual Model for Solving Percent Problems," which originally appeared in Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, Vol. 1, No. 1 (April 1994), pp. 20-25.Math 6 Spy Guys
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=450660
Interactive lessons that cover multiple Grade 6 standards from the Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools.Numbers and Operation: Place Value lesson for Grade 3
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=673565
Students recognize patterns in place-value, show the standard form of a 5-digit number, write the number in expanded form and word form, and apply their knowledge and evaluated for accuracy using individual white boards.Quadratic Transformer
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=418382
This Java applet demonstrates visually how changing the coefficients in a quadratic function changes the graph, and shows the relationship between roots and x-intercepts. An included activity handout guides students to develop rules for how changes to the quadratic and constant coefficients of a quadratic function change its graph, and to briefly explore the "polynomial," "root" and "vertex" forms of a quadratic function. Budgeting with Percents
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=449415
This is a full lesson plan for applying percents in a real life application.Calculating Area of Non-Standard Figures
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=595548
This is a lesson plan following the Instructional Design Template. It allows students the opportunity to explore the ideas and concepts of area, using their classroom dimensions as a real world experiment. Additionally, students view a short online video reiterating the content.Difference of Squares
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=427540
This activity uses a series of related arithmetic experiences to prompt students to generalize into more abstract ideas. In particular, students explore arithmetic statements leading to a result that is the factoring pattern for the difference of two squares. A geometric interpretation of the familiar formula is also included. This lesson plan was adapted from an article by David Slavit, which appeared in the February 2001 edition of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School.
