###
Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents

This lesson helps students understand two foundational exponential properties: The Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents. Students will collaborate to formulate a rule for these properties. Ultimately, students should conclude that when the same bases are being multiplied, exponents will be added; and when the same bases are being divided, exponents will be subtracted. As the lesson progresses, students will apply these rules to simplify expressions of various difficulties.

###
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!

Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a real-world problem is correct using context and computational skills.

###
Proving an Ecosystem’s Health Through Succession

**Students engage in viewing day three of ecosystem changes in lab groups to determine if the ecosystem is healthy or unhealthy based on scientific data and factors. **

###
Glaciologist in Action (Lab)

Students participate in a hands-on lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Centers in Subtraction

**Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts. **

###
Solving Equations and Inequalities

Students will be divided into four groups and work on their assigned task to become an expert. They will match vocabulary terms with definitions and examples, use the “Pass the Pen” strategy to create and solve equations or inequalities, or write a real-world problem for an equation given. The experts will then teach these concepts to their peers.

###
Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cells

Students will categorize cells as prokaryotic or eukaryotic by identifying the presence or lack of a nucleus.

###
45-45-90 Triangles

To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.

###
Newton's Second Law

Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.

###
Does it have Potential?

Students will work with partners to investigate how mass, potential energy, and kinetic energy act on objects dropped from varying heights.

###
Mendelian Genetics Using Monohybrids

Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious, real-world scenario to determine the probability of each breeding pair of dogs producing offspring with the desired trait for a fictitious client.

###
More Super Duper Math

**Students will gather objects to compare quantities and justify their answers pictorially and verbally. They will use their vocabulary posters and accountable talk menus to discuss with their partners. **

###
Perfectly Proportional Percents

Students will collaborate to explain verbally how to solve percent proportions and scaling while showing their thinking.

###
When Life Gives You Lemons

**Students create input-output tables to find numerical patterns and relationships in the real world through the process of making lemonade.**

###
Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans

**Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.**

###
Who Ran the Farthest?

Students determine by using fractions which fourth-grade teacher ran the farthest.

###
Express Yourself

Students determine which expression is a truth or a lie by generating equivalent expressions.

###
Keep Your Balance!

**Students are introduced to solving one-variable, one-step equations using addition and subtraction through models and hands-on activities. The students will learn the substitution method of checking answers.**

###
Perfecting Percents

Students will engage in an activity that allows them to explore the different parts of percents: part, whole, and percent, and develop conceptual understanding of percents through the Concrete, Representational, Abstract (CRA) method of instruction.
