Lessons  Students' Reflections '97'98
Introduction:
In one of the textbooks used, Glencoe's Interactive Mathematics, the seventh grade mathematics curriculum consists of six units: team building, data sense, area and perimeter, probability, modular arithmetic and measurement of angles.
These Web pages will provide interactive lessons for students and record techniques used. They will model lessons that
 offer a combination of manipulatives and technology
 use the computer as a tool
 are of sufficient length to engage students fully
 can be presented using several strategies
 are aligned to both the California Mathematics Standards and the NCTM Standards.
Unit 7 has been reworked for the 199899 school year. Some of the activities are specific to the text, while others stand on their own. Fully developed pages include:
Traffic Jam,
Dominoes,
Bricks, and the
Locker Problem.
