• 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.

    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.
