https://www.oercommons.org/courses/ordered-simple-plot-2
Plot ordered pairs on the graph, and they will be connected in the order that they are input. This enables you to decide how the pairs should be connected, rather than having the computer connect them from left to right.MathematicsComputing and InformationEngineeringEducation2014-11-05T10:08:55.512546Course Related MaterialsVenn Diagram Shape Sorter

https://www.oercommons.org/courses/building-a-sierpinski-pyramid
The purpose of this lab is to enable students to compute the perimeter and area of equilateral triangles, and to make the connection between area of triangles (2-D) and the surface area of pyramids (3-D). Furthermore, a secondary purpose to this lab is to allow students to construct – with contributions from everyone – a piece of art full of mathematical meaning and implications (from geometry, algebra, and even calculus!)MathematicsPhysics2014-11-02T13:20:15.160935Course Related MaterialsDiscovering the Pythagorean Theorem

Students will use a variety of different size squares to form right triangles. After recording the lengths of the sides, students will square the values and look for the relationship.MathematicsComputing and InformationEducation2014-11-02T13:20:15.047730Course Related MaterialsWhere Is ??? In The Room?

This is a visual activity where students must visualize a shape and then identify it in the room. Students will learn to see how everyday objects are geometric and remember what they look like for the exam.Mathematics2014-11-02T13:20:11.497441Course Related MaterialsLesson 26: The Distance and Midpoint Formulas
https://www.oercommons.org/courses/lesson-26-the-distance-and-midpoint-formulas
The lesson begins by associating the distance between two points with the right triangle that may be formed by joining the points and extending horizontal and vertical lines through the points. This linking is generalized to derive the distance formula for any two points in the plane. The midpoint formula is then derived by taking the average of the coordinates of the two points. Using the distance formula, the equation for circle is derived and then examples follow for finding the equation of a given circle.MathematicsComputing and InformationPhysicsEducation2014-11-02T13:20:08.846540Course Related Materials"The Patterns in Thumb and Finger Marks," by Francis Galton, Phil.
