Click through each representation to see how the display of relative frequency relates to the display of cumulative frequency and their corresponding histograms. Examine how each method is useful for summarizing the variation in numeric data.
Compare the effects of relative and absolute changes on a picture. Watch what happens to a Quadperson (a drawing of a face made of quadrilaterals) if every line were made half as long or made a half-inch shorter.
Plot out a three-dimensional structure based on two-dimensional silhouettes. Look at the front and side view of figures and use a table to plot out the dimensions that mathematically represent the figures.
One approach for finding area is to surround the shape with a rectangle, determine the areas of the rectangle and subtract the pieces of the rectangle that are outside the original shape. Use this geoboard to create shapes and determine their areas.
The process of converting fractions to decimals can help clarify the relationship between the two. Investigate the repeating parts that emerge when you expand sevenths and 13ths fractions into decimals.
The connected machine is a single function that takes an input, runs it through the network inside and produces an output. You control a network of function machines along with the input and the operation performed by each machine to solve problems.
To find the area of a shape, surround the shape with a rectangle, determine the areas of the rectangle and subtract the pieces of the rectangle that are outside the original shape. Use this geoboard to create shapes and determine their areas.
The colors listed in the boxes represent different parts of speech: noun, verb, adjective, adverb, etc. Figure out which colors represent which part of speech and then use the colors to create proper sentences.
To find a hidden treasure use taxicab geometry, a special kind of geometry that counts in city blocks. Pick an intersection, ask the computer how far it is to the treasure and get the distance using taxicab geometry.
