Weeks ThirtyThree/ThirtySix (May 819)
Main Activity
Interactive Mathematics Text
p. 23 Apple Sacks
This activity includes working with combinations and probability.
This will be available as an ESCOT Runner problem.
Alignment to CA Mathematics Standards:
Data, Statistics and Probability
SAT9  "predict outcomes"
Mathematical Reasoning
1.1 analyze problems by identifying relationships, discriminating relevant from irrelevant information, identifying missing information, sequencing and prioritizing information, and observing patterns
1.2 formulate and justify mathematical conjectures based upon a general description of the mathematical question or problem posed
2.4 make and test conjectures using both inductive and deductive reasoning

Weeks ThirtyFive/ThirtySix (May 22  June 2)
Main Activity CHANGE
Exploring Mathematical Concepts
A variety of short lessons to reinforce standardsbased concepts.
MAC Text
pp. 426429  Scale Drawings
pp. 301302  Constructing Perpendicular Lines
pp. 311312  Constructing Angle Bisectors and Segments
pp. 343  Pythagorean Theorem
pp. 344350  The Pythagorean Theorem
Alignment to CA Mathematics Standards:
Measurement and Geometry
1.2 construct and read scale drawings and models
3.1 identify and construct basic elements of geometric figures, (e.g., altitudes,
midpoints, diagonals, angle bisectors and perpendicular bisectors; and central angles,
radii, diameters and chords of circles) using compass and straightedge
3.3 know and understand the Pythagorean Theorem and use it to find the length of the
missing side of a right triangle and lengths of other line segments, and, in some
situations, empirically verify the Pythagorean Theorem by direct measurement
Mathematical Reasoning
1.1 analyze problems by identifying relationships, discriminating relevant from irrelevant information, identifying missing information, sequencing and prioritizing information, and observing patterns
1.2 formulate and justify mathematical conjectures based upon a general description of the mathematical question or problem posed
2.4 make and test conjectures using both inductive and deductive reasoning
2.7 indicate the relative advantages of exact and approximate solutions to problems and give answers to a specified degree of accuracy
Resources
Assessment
 Students will demonstrate understanding of increases and decreases.
 Students will solve problems that involve discounts, markups, commissions, profit and simple
compound interest with decimals and money.
