Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

STEM Lessons  Model Eliciting Activity
Students will be comparing hybridelectric vehicles (HEV) versus gasolinepowered vehicles. They will research the benefits of owning a HEV while also analyzing the cost effectiveness.
Model Eliciting Activities, MEAs, are openended, interdisciplinary problemsolving activities that are meant to reveal students’ thinking about the concepts embedded in realistic situations. Click here to learn more about MEAs and how they can transform your classroom.

ProblemSolving Tasks
The purpose of this task is to assess ability to interpret the slope and intercept of the least squares regression line in context.
Type: ProblemSolving Task
This problem solving task asks students to examine the relationship between shops and crimes by using a correlation coefficient.
Type: ProblemSolving Task
This task would be especially wellsuited for instructional purposes. Students will benefit from a class discussion about the slope, yintercept, xintercept, and implications of the restricted domain for interpreting more precisely what the equation is modeling.

Linear equations can be used to solve many types of realword problems. In this episode, the water depth of a pool is shown to be a linear function of time and an equation is developed to model its behavior. Unfortunately, ace Algebra student A. V. Geekman ends up in hot water anyway.
