Project One Million - Million Mosaic and Million Poster Projects:  In what ways can you help someone understand the true size of the number one million?

 

 

Angles and Parallel Lines - Two parallel lines cut by a transversal form several angles.  Can you remember the names of the angles that are formed and the relationships between their measures?

 

 

Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section

 

 

Traffic Light System - Perform an urban planning experiment using this Traffic Light System Java applet.  Can you correctly time the stoplights to maximize city traffic flow?

 

 

Reaction Time - Test your reaction time using this Reaction Time Java applet.  As a class, we tested our individual reaction times.  We then used that data to create a line graph, bar graph, line plot and stem-and-leaf diagram.  We also found the mean, median, mode and range of our class data.  We then developed written conclusions based on the class data.
