Suzanne's Comments about Stanford Spring 2004 Projects

After reviewing the Stanford projects from Spring 2004, I would like to suggest that the Math Forum consider cataloging them in:

Here are my preliminary thoughts:

Currently it does not run on my Powerbook G4 and I remember Jennifer saying that there had been some technical problems but if these are resolved, we would add this to a Teacher2Teacher FAQ that we have called Searching for Information under "Web Resources."

Mars Exploration

Alignment to NCTM Standards
Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8: Measurement: understand measureable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement; apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements

Linear Lasers

Alignment to NCTM Standards
Grades 6-8: Algebra: represent, analyze, and generalize a variety of patterns with tables, graphs, words, and, when possible, symbolic rules; identify functions as linear or nonlinear; use symbolic algebra to represent situations and to solve problems, especially those that involve linear relationships; use graphs to analyze the nature of changes in quantities in linear relationships

Alignment to Math Tools courses/topics

  • Math 7: Rect coordinate geometry, Linear relationships
  • Algebra: Linear Equations
