Students are introduced to the classification of animals and animal interactions. Students also learn why engineers need to know about animals and how they use that knowledge to design technologies that help other animals and/or humans. This lesson is part of a series of six lessons in which students use their growing understanding of various environments and the engineering design process, to design and create their own model biodome ecosystems.

Students use a geoboard to explore how many different upper case letters they can make that have parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and both parallel and perpendicular lines. Students record their work on dot paper, label the lines, and explain the difference between parallel and perpendicular lines.

In this lesson plan, students will use protractors to measure angles and draw angles of a specific measure. Students will also use an angle wheel as a way to measure the degrees of an angle. Finally students will study artistic prints and find an angle within the picture to measure and then discuss why they used the measure in the artwork.

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: Maned wolves are a threatened species that live in South America. People estimate that there are about 24,000 of them living in the wild. The dhole is ...

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.

Students learn about sampling bias by working in three separate groups to survey students, parents, and teachers about the amount of homework students ought to have. They report and compare the responses from each of the three groups to see how the results differ. Activity sheets, discussion questions, ideas for assessment and extensions, and Internet links are included.
