In this activity, students will investigate the distribution and patterns of natural mineral resources and draw conclusions about where copper bearing minerals are found around the world.
Next time you go out on a hike, bring this activity along with you!
In this lesson students use unit rates to find the speed at which the Earth rotates around the Equator, Tropic of Cancer, and Arctic Circle.
In this lesson, students approximate the areas of different landmasses by decomposing them into triangles and rectangles.
In this lesson students use rates, arc length, and trigonometry to determine the speed at which points on the Equator, Tropic of Cancer, and Arctic Circle travel due to the Earth’s rotation.
This activity provides teachers and students with an interactive 3D model to calculate these differences in time.
Unfortunately, real world math lessons are sometimes learned from tragedy.
In this activity students will take part in a series of consecutive plane trips around the world while keeping track of the time for each time zone they land in.
