This lesson is designed for seventh grade math. The theme is "Earth Day" and the lesson focus is on circle graphs and bar graphs. Students will explore statistics on conservation and recycling while they learn how to interpret data and convert it into graphs. The differentiations method is cubing tiered on three levels of difficulty with each cube holding six levels of blooms taxonomy. The activities are also differentiated by learning style.

This lesson occurs towards the beginning of a unit on functions, a mathematical topic that deals with the relationship between two quantities, known as independent and dependent variables.The goal for this lesson will be to draw upon studentsâ€™ intuitive awareness of cause and effect, and to apply this knowledge to authentic, real-world situations. This will give students the theoretical and conceptual foundations they will need to grasp more complex and formulaic ideas in the unit. It will also promote meaningful learning as it will show students how mathematics is relevant to their everyday lives. Through this lessons tudents will be able to identify independent and dependent variables in the real world and express the relationship between specific independent and dependent variables

This is a math lesson for middle school students on solving equations. Through this lesson students will be able to find a single answer from multiple algebra equations, be able to create visual representations to illustrate a system of equations, and understand the concept that similar figures may have different sizes. This lesson spans over a fourteen day period where students apply math knowledge to an architect project. The students are tiered by ability.

This lesson is a math lesson for seventh and eighth grade students on mean, medium, and mode. Through this lesson students will be able to understand the measures of central tendency and their definitions, how to calculate them and what steps are involved, and how the theories can be applied on real life. In this lesson, students are tiered by ability and are able to pick a project based off of their interest and the math concept they are working on. Each activity has a tiered task card to guide the students.
