Students will use algebraic thinking, data analysis and the engineering design process to solve problems in real-world settings.

In Building Math for Common Core State Standards: Everest Trek, students overcome the challenges of extreme weather and dangerous trail conditions to conquer the world s tallest mountain.

Students will conduct mathematics investigations including

Locating and representing the range of acceptable values on a graph to meet design criteria

Extrapolating data based on trends.

Producing and analyzing graphs that relate two variables

Distinguishing between independent and dependent variables

Producing and analyzing graphs that relate two variables

Comparing rates of change (linear versus non linear relationships)

Measuring angles using a protractor

Comparing and discussing appropriate measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode)

Applying the distance-time-speed formula

Science investigations include:

Conducting two controlled experiments.

Collecting experimental data in a table

Using physical and math models

Distinguishing between independent and dependent variables

Building Math was developed through a partnership with the Boston Museum of Science and Tufts University, and successfully piloted in Boston-area schools.

Each book includes a poster illustrating the engineering design process and a DVD with classroom implementation samples.

Addresses Common Core State standards and ITEA standards for technological literacy
