This assignment was created by Nicole McGlashan of Huron High School, Huron, South Dakota. It describes a self-directed activity for students to practice finding the transformations of functions by comparing the function to the graph of the intial function. There is a link to the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics and Larry Green's interactive website that the students participate in.Course: Algebra II , Advanced Algebra , Pre-Calculus , Trigonometry

Mathematics and science are often the great separators rather than equalizers. They are the gatekeeper subjects. Without advanced courses in science and mathematics, students are excluded from educational opportunities and experiences that can affect their career aspirations, their role in society, and even their sense of fulfillment. Our standards address this reality. Federal funding has been aimed at helping children from communities that have been historically left behind catch up in science. Now the government demands that materials for programs with federal funding be exclusively ?evidence-based? resources. The student's task for this assignment is to delve a little deeper into what it means to transform education into an ?evidence-based? field. Upon completion of this assignment, they should have a deeper understanding of how "Action Research" makes them a participant in a national community of science education investigators.Course: SCED552 Research in Science Education

This assignment was created by Nicole McGlashan of Huron High School, Huron, South Dakota. It describes a self-directed activity in which students discover the nature of the transformation of a function's graph that occurs when the function itself is transformed.. Included in the assignement are links to the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics and Larry Green's interactive website.Course: Algebra II , Advanced Algebra , Pre-Calculus , Trigonometry

Students are directed to visit the MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive and to read an extensive online article entitled History of Pi; in addition, they make use of an interactive simulation of Buffon's Needle experiment. Afterwards, they answer several questions on how mathematicians calculated approximations for the value of pi and on the formulas that they used.
In a subsequent class session, the instructor demonstrates a Java applet that simulates Buffon's Needle experiment in a cumulative manner. In a think-pair-share activity or write-pair-share activity, students analyze and discuss Buffon's experiment and its relationship to the value of pi.Course: Liberal Arts Math
