This is a task from the Illustrative Mathematics website that is one part of a complete illustration of the standard to which it is aligned. Each task has at least one solution and some commentary that addresses important asects of the task and its potential use. Here are the first few lines of the commentary for this task: A penny is about $\frac{1}{16}$ of an inch thick. In 2011 there were approximately 5 billion pennies minted. If all of these pennies were placed in a s...

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) videos are designed to support states, …

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.

In CK-12 Middle School Math Concepts Grade 8, the learning content is divided into concepts. Each concept is complete and whole providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Theme-based concepts provide students with experiences that integrate the content of each concept. Students are given opportunities to practice the skills of each concept through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and explore more practice. There are also video links provided to give students an audio/visual way of connecting with the content.

In this activity, the students will demonstrate the ability to represent numbers in scientific notation and use geometry to solve problems about planets in the solar system.

In this lesson, students understand how choice of unit determines how easy …

In this lesson, students understand how choice of unit determines how easy or difficult it is to understand an expression of measurement. Students determine appropriate units for various measurements and rewrite measurements based on new units.

In this lesson, students compare numbers expressed in scientific notation. Students apply …

In this lesson, students compare numbers expressed in scientific notation. Students apply the laws of exponents to interpret data and use technology to compute with very large numbers.

In a hands-on way, students explore light's properties of absorption, reflection, transmission and refraction through various experimental stations within the classroom. To understand absorption, reflection and transmission, they shine flashlights on a number of preselected objects. To understand refraction, students create indoor rainbows. An understanding of the fundamental properties of light is essential to designing an invisible laser security system.

This is an instructional task meant to generate a conversation around the meaning of negative integer exponents. While it may be unfamiliar to some students, it is good for them to learn the convention that negative time is simply any time before t=0.

Students will expand their basic knowledge of positive integer exponents and prove …

Students will expand their basic knowledge of positive integer exponents and prove the Laws of Exponents for any integer exponent. Next, students work with numbers in the form of an integer multiplied by a power of 10 to express how many times as much one is than the other. This leads into an explanation of scientific notation and continued work performing operations on numbers written in this form.
