The course was/will be terminated at the end of School Year 2018 - 2019

## General Course Information and Notes

### Version Description

This course is designed for 7th grade students and is intended to be 18 weeks in length. The purpose of this course is to develop the physical skills necessary to be competent in many forms of movement, knowledge of team sports concepts such as offensive and defensive strategies and tactics, and appropriate social behaviors within a team or group setting. The integration of fitness concepts throughout the content is critical to the success of this course.

### General Notes

Instructional Practices

Teaching from a well-written, grade-level textbook enhances students' content area knowledge and also strengthens their ability to comprehend longer, complex reading passages on any topic for any reason. Using the following instructional practices also helps student learning:
• Reading assignments from longer text passages as well as shorter ones when text is extremely complex.
• Asking high-level, text-specific questions and requiring high-level, complex tasks and assignments.
• Requiring students to support answers with evidence from the text.
• Providing extensive text-based research and writing opportunities (claims and evidence).

## Student Resources

Vetted resources students can use to learn the concepts and skills in this course.

## Original Student Tutorials

Introduction to Probability:

Learn how to calculate the probability of simple events, that probability is the likeliness of an event occurring and that some events may be more likely than others to occur, in thisÂ interactive tutorial.

Type: Original Student Tutorial

Hot on the Trail:

Investigate how temperature affects the rate of chemical reactions in this interactive tutorial.

Type: Original Student Tutorial

The Titanic 1:

This task asks students to calculate probabilities using information presented in a two-way frequency table.

## Tutorials

The Limits of Probability:

This video discusses the limits of probability as between 0 and 1.

Type: Tutorial

This resource helps the user learn the three primary colors that are fundamental to human vision, learn the different colors in the visible spectrum, observe the resulting colors when two colors are added, and learn what white light is. A combination of text and a virtual manipulative allows the user to explore these concepts in multiple ways.

Type: Tutorial

Primary Subtractive Colors:

The user will learn the three primary subtractive colors in the visible spectrum, explore the resulting colors when two subtractive colors interact with each other and explore the formation of black color.

Type: Tutorial

## Virtual Manipulatives

Spinner:

In this activity, students adjust how many sections there are on a fair spinner then run simulated trials on that spinner as a way to develop concepts of probability. A table next to the spinner displays the theoretical probability for each color section of the spinner and records the experimental probability from the spinning trials. This activity allows students to explore the topics of experimental and theoretical probability by seeing them displayed side by side for the spinner they have created. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.

Type: Virtual Manipulative

Random Drawing Tool - Individual Trials (Probability Simulation):

This virtual manipulative allows one to make a random drawing box, putting up to 21 tickets with the numbers 0-11 on them. After selecting which tickets to put in the box, the applet will choose tickets at random. There is also an option which will show the theoretical probability for each ticket.
