The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) videos are designed to support states, schools, and teachers in the implementation of selected math standards. Each video is an audiovisual resource that focuses on one or more specific standards through examples and illustrations geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of each content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual standard rather than to be a guide on how to teach each standard, although the examples can be adapted for instructional use.

Educational Use
Students use the scientific method to determine the effect of control surfaces on a paper glider. They construct paper airplanes (model gliders) and test their performance to determine the base characteristics of the planes. Then they change one of the control surfaces and compare the results to their base glider in order to determine the cause and effect relationship of the control surfaces.

Educational Use
This activity is an easy way to demonstrate the fundamental properties of polar and non-polar molecules (such as water and oil), how they interact, and the affect surfactants (such as soap) have on their interactions. Students see the behavior of oil and water when placed together, and the importance soap (a surfactant) plays in the mixing of oil and water which is why soap is used every day to clean greasy objects, such as hands and dishes. This activity is recommended for all levels of student, grades 3-12, as it can easily be scaled to meet any desired level of difficulty.

Students will extend the number line (both horizontally and vertically) to include the opposites of whole numbers. The number line serves as a model to relate integers and other rational numbers to statements of order in real-world contexts.

In this lesson, students justify the distance formula for rational numbers on a number line: If p and q are rational numbers on a number line, then the distance between p and q is |p – q|. Students know the definition of subtraction in terms of addition (i.e., a – b = c means that b + c = a) and use the definition of subtraction to justify the distance formula. Students solve word problems involving changes in distance or temperature.

Educational Use
In this interactive, use logic to solve riddles involving a wallaby jumping contest. Then, place each contestant’s jump—a fraction, mixed number, or decimal between –5 and +5—at the correct point on the number line. Backward jumps are represented by negative numbers and forward jumps by positive numbers. Numbers are randomized so that riddles can be solved and wallabies placed on the number line multiple times. The accompanying classroom activity includes a fraction/decimal concept review and a response sheet to accompany the online work.

Sample Learning Goals

Represent addition and subtraction of integers on a horizontal number line

Reason about addition and subtraction of integers in terms of number-locations

Use logical necessity to reason that addition has the opposite effect as subtraction or that adding (or subtracting) a negative integer has the opposite effect as adding (or subtracting) a positive integer.

Recognize and generate equivalence classes of integer sums and differences

Show that a number and its additive inverse (opposite) have a sum of 0

Using a net worth context, describe situations that have a positive sum or difference, negative sum or difference, and zero sum or difference

View adding a negative as equivalent to subtracting a positive, and explain why this relationship makes sense in contexts such as net worth.

View subtracting a negative as equivalent to adding a positive, and explain why this relationship makes sense in contexts such as net worth.

Apply a number line model for addition and subtraction to new contexts.
