**Math Labs, Projects, and Interesting Ideas**

*What follows is my growing collection of sites
that offer ideas for the math classroom (middle and high school). *

**Graphing Calculator Labs/Instructions**

TI-82/TI-83
Help

Easy-to-follow instructions mainly for statistics use.

TI-8n Help

A more complete how-to collection.

Activities for the TI

Some use CBLs, but many do not. Be sure to try these labs yourself first, as the instructions are not the best.

**Interdisciplinary Labs**

Imagine
the Universe

I've used the "Lotto or Life" plan with students for a probability unit - it
was well-written and the kids enjoyed it.

Other units focus on algebra skills
more.

**Geometry Activities/Projects**

Tessellations

How to do Escher-like pictures - excellent instructions; works well with a transformations
unit.

Area
Contest

Some good questions that can be used with the CAPT formula sheet.

Painting a Room

Clearly written.

Mapping
the Seabed

Area, scale factor, and percents in this one.

Estimating Angles

Good practice for basic skills.

Clock Angles

A few questions that apply angle concepts.

**Applications**

How to Win
on "The Wheel of Fortune"

Good practice on using percents; can be extended into a probability lesson as
well.

Candy
Statistics

Unlike other candy labs, this one incorporates graphing with the statistics.

A Variety of Activities

Many use data from the internet, but there are several CAPT-like situations here.

Linear Equations

Good activities for comparing linear models.
