This Desmos activity provides an interactive opportunity for students to work with data as represented between data and the box plot that results from it. Students walk through an investigation on interpreting center, spread, and the impact of outliers on various box plots. Students will also use their inference skills to compare two box plots. The teacher has the ability to pace students on slides, pause them, and promote whole class discussion based upon individual student responses. The teacher can also anonymize students names to provide for more risk taking in their responses.Students may be reminded of their prior knowledge of a box plot from middle school before starting this lesson.This original lesson was created by Bob Lochel and modified by Emily O'Brien.
Electronic practice that can provide teachers the ability to individualize or assign as a group. This collections of topics covers middle school standards through AP Calculus AB. Easily create a class and assign practice topics to one or all of your students. You can assign due date, late dates, as well as customize how many questions students need to work through. Students get immediate feedback on their practice and are walked through the correct solution if they get it incorrect. This website is run by a math teacher who created it because he was looking for an alternative to assigning textbook problems.
This electronic activity uses Desmos to walk students through graphical representations of polynomial transformations. Students work at their own pace or through teacher controlled pacing to explore cases and illustrate an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology. Teachers can also select and highlight student responses and bring them to the attention of the entire class. Link to Activity
