Mr. Stuart Lenz (Primary)
Students will work with equations and graphing of lines. Concepts of slopes, slope-intercept form, degrees, coordinates are all covered. This is designed for Advanced Algebra. But, it could also work for Algebra 1 and Geometry as well.
Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics Curriculum Framework Components Addressed:

- Use slope-intercept form
- Graph linear equation
- Graph line from equation
- Derive equation from line
- Rotation of lines
- Find intersection point of two lines
Plan Of Action:
- Give students warm-up worksheet
- Review slope-intercept form
- Discuss RFID technology and the concept of triangulation
- Show Powerpoint presentation
- In-class activtiy
- Find a hidden object using degree coordinates and a compass
- In-class worksheet
- Lincoln and USA maps
Data Set Used:
Used Google Maps and GeoGebra
- Computer and LCD projector for Powerpoint
- Warm-up Worksheet
- In-class Worksheet
- Compass (N,S,E,W)
- Object to hide for in-class activity
You will need to hide an object in the classroom before the class arrives. Once you have hidden the object, you need to find the coordinates of the object. You will be giving those coordinates to the students during the in-class activity.
2 days (can be done in 1 day, but would be rushed)
Science, Math, Engineering and / or Technology Implications:
This lesson mixes geometry and algebra concepts. It reviews lines, rotations, degrees, coordinates, and graphing. This is really what engineers have to do in their everyday job.
Considerations for Diversity in Education:
Could use maps of different countries or cities, depending on the students in the class.
Kinesthetic learners are allowed to work with their hands
Visual leaners have maps to use
