Math in focus - Day 1: March 17, 2020
All Math in Focus students may follow the plans below.
Check with your math teacher regarding how she would like you to share your work.
**Pre-algebra students should visit Mrs. Bucher's website**
Overview: Number Cards and Daily Temperature Tracking and Graphing Set-up
Estimated Time: Approximately 45 minutes
Explanation: Today you will create a set of number cards. You will also develop and set-up your daily tracking and graphing chart. This chart will be a collection device for daily temperatures.
Things to know:
When creating a chart, remember to include a chart title, x-axis title, y-axis title, and numbers to locate coordinate points.
The daily temperature can be found in many places. Be sure to get a parent/guardian’s permission before accessing a place to view the daily temperature.

Tasks for Today:
**Files needed for today's activities will be found in your Math Team. Reach out to your math teacher if you cannot access the documents.
1. Create a set of number cards. These cards will be used for various activities, so save them from day to day. As a suggestion, you could use 10 index cards, 10 post it notes, or even 10 sheets of similarly sized paper to make your number cards.
- Place one digit on each card (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
2. Daily Temperature Chart:
- Option #1: Use the premade chart to develop your daily temperature chart.
- Option #2: Use a blank sheet of paper or grid paper to create your own chart.
Remember: include a chart title, x-axis title, y-axis title, and numbers to locate coordinate points for each day.Once your temperature chart is created, graph the high temperature for today. Remember to have your parent’s permission before accessing a place to view the daily temperature.
You will complete this activity each day.
Share today's work:
Remember, your work today is not graded, but I'd love to see what you've done. You can share your work with me through Teams, email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Seesaw, or share your composition book with me when we return to school.
