Just Right Goldilocks’ Café: Temperature & Turbidity  This is lesson 3 of 3 in the Goldilocks’ Café Just Right unit. This lesson focuses on systematic investigation on getting a cup of coffee to be the “just right” temperature and turbidity level. Students will use both the temperature probe and turbidity sensor and code using ScratchX during their investigation. 
Just Right Goldilocks’ Café: Turbidity  This is lesson 2 of 3 in the Just Right Goldilocks’ Café unit. This lesson focuses on systematic investigation on getting a cup of coffee to be the “just right” level of turbidity. Students will use turbidity sensors and code using ScratchX during their investigation. 
Just Right Goldilocks’ Café: Temperature  This is lesson 1 of 3 in the Just Right Goldilocks’ Café unit. This lesson focuses on systematic investigation on getting a cup of coffee to be the “just right” temperature. Students will use temperature probes and code using ScratchX during their investigation.

Gather Data For Distribution by Programming an App  This lesson allow students to gather, calculate, and plot data using both computer code and mathematical equations. In this lesson students will create a pedometer app to demonstrate the understanding of algorithms, components (such as buttons, textboxes, sensors, etc.), and If/Then statements. This lesson uses algebraic equations and random data to access the needed components to store data in a spreadsheet. 
Data Sets Represented in Computers  This lesson shows how data can be represented by computers, in relation to everyday activities we may not be aware that we use computer. It gives an overview of graphing data by creating a histogram based on population data. Using the data collected, students will get a chance to hand write code to show what structure is needed for computers to collect, analyze and distribute such data. This lesson is lesson 1 of the Data Set and Deviation Statistics Unit and bridges statistical concepts of data collection, graphing and analysis with programming a computer using coding language while reinforcing foundational algebraic skills. 
Scout Robot: Mass, Density, Volume, Weight  In this MEA, students must select which material to use in the development of an advanced military scout robot. Students must analyze data about each material’s individual properties that would make it a valid choice for military or police service. Students must complete calculations to determine material density as well as the overall mass and weight of the robot. This lesson focuses on the characteristic properties of density, unit conversion, and differentiating between mass and weight. 
How Fast Can One Travel on a Bicycle?  Students investigate how the pedal and rear wheel gears affect the speed of a bicycle. A GeoGebra sketch is included that allows a simulation of the turning of the pedal and the rear wheel. A key goal is to provide an experience for the students to apply and integrate the key concepts in seventh grade mathematics in a familiar context. 
HOORAH!! Pizza For Lunch  The principal of Central Middle School is thinking of adding pizza to the lunch menu on Mondays and Fridays but needs help deciding the costs per slice and what students think is important about the pizza. After the students' initial decision about the pizza the principal remembers that there is a delivery charge.The students must revisit their decision and do additional calculations to see if their original process still works. 
Steps to Solving Equations  This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to form and solve linear equations involving factorizing and using the distributive law. In particular, this unit aims to help you identify and assist students who have difficulties in using variables to represent quantities in a realworld or mathematical problem and solving word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r. 
Understanding Equations Using Perimeter  This is an introductory lesson in writing and solving equations in the form p(x + q) = r using the perimeter of rectangles. 
Pennies and Postits  Students will look at balancing linear equations using pennies as constants and Postits as the coefficient of the linear term. 
Gummy vs. Gum (Number Pattern)  "In this lesson, students use gummy bears and sticks of gum to discover a number pattern and write an equation that describes it. This lesson should be conducted after students have worked with patterns and one and twostep equations." from the Beacon Learning Center. 
Inequaltileies  In this lesson, students will work with Algebra Tiles to solve inequalities. This lesson builds upon student experience with solving equalities, as well as identifying inequalities and representing them on the number line. This lesson is an introduction to solving inequalities. (This lesson addresses part a of the standard)
