###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Newton's Second Law

Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.

###
How Newton's Laws Apply Every Day

Students collaboratively determine how the characteristics of a real-world job correlate with each of Newton’s Laws and why that is relevant to their own lives.

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Convergent Plate Boundaries

Students will design and test models that will identify crustal features formed by convergent plate boundaries.

###
Full Speed Ahead

Students will use hover pucks to measure speed over a distance of six meters. Once speed has been calculated, students will determine velocity using the same data. Finally, students will be able to label all points of acceleration.

###
Four Representations of Linear Relationships

Given one representation of a linear relationship, students will create a poster displaying the other three representations of linear relationships.

###
Concert Trip to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado

**Students will evaluate and interpret data from both tabular and graphical forms to create a linear equation in either the form of direct variation (y=kx) or slope-intercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and y-intercept using a real-world relationship in word form.**

###
Can We Get There?

Students will calculate the rate of change and *y*-intercept from a real-world problem represented in a graph, a table, and/or an equation. They will then display and present their findings to the class.

###
No Interest If Paid in Full: How Much Do I Owe?

Students will write a linear equation from a real-world situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.

###
Which One Doesn't Belong? Proportional vs Non-Proportional Relationships

**Students will make connections as they examine proportional and non-proportional relationships represented in functions including tables, equations, graphs, and verbal descriptions and think critically to determine which one does not belong in a set and why.**

###
Balancing Act

Given a prompt, students will solve a multi-step equation using concrete and/or pictorial models.

###
19 OnTRACK Grade 7 Math: Proportionality

Students will learn to use proportional relationships to describe dilations; to explain proportional and non-proportional relationships involving slope; and to use proportional and non-proportional relationships to develop foundational concepts of functions.

###
4 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Number and Operations

Students will learn how to apply mathematical process standards to represent and use real numbers in a variety of forms.

###
11 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Proportionality

Students learn to to use proportional relationships to describe dilation; explain proportional and non-proportional relationships involving slope; and use proportional and non-proportional relationships to develop foundational concepts of functions.

###
9 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Expressions, Equations, and Relationships

Students will learn to develop mathematical relationships and make connections to geometric formulas; use geometry to solve problems; use one-variable equations or inequalities in problem situations; and use multiple representations to develop foundational concepts of simultaneous linear equations.

###
5 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Two-Dimensional Shapes, Measurement, and Data

Students will learn to develop transformational geometry concepts and to use statistical procedures to describe data.

###
10 OnTRACK Grade 8 Science: Force, Motion, and Energy

Students will explore the relationship between force, motion, and energy.

###
Breakout with Linear Relationships

Through a collaborative breakout station format, students will access prior knowledge to develop a deeper understanding of the relationships of slope through proportional relationships represented by unit rate and linear non-proportional relationships. A variety of representations will be practiced through scenarios, tables, graphs, and equations.
