**How to NOT teach Photosynthesis**By Angie Redmon (who is not a member of the WVC science faculty)**#1: Find a cool You Tube Video**http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1_uez5WX1o http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzRH3iTQPrk**#2: Be Nice to a Science Teacher**“Erica, you are the best science teacher ever and I love that color on you!”**#3: Ask the Right Questions**(and teach your students to do the same) • Let your students to learn from the data. • Use the science to help teach or reinforce a key math concept. • Encourage students to do further research on their own. • Have students formulate questions for the science teams.**Don’t forget the standards-MS**Grade 6 • Write a mathematical expression or equation with variables to represent information in a table or given situation. • Draw a first-quadrant graph in the coordinate plane to represent information in a table or given situation. • Represent a problem situation, describe the process used to solve the problem, and verify the reasonableness of the solution. • Extract and organize mathematical information from symbols, diagrams, and graphs to make inferences, draw conclusions and justify reasoning. Grade 7 • Write an equation that corresponds to a given problem situation and describe a problem situation that corresponds to a given equation. • Represent proportional relationships using graphs, tables, and equations, and make connections among the representations. • Evaluate different displays of the same data for effectiveness and bias, and explain reasoning. • Extract and organize mathematical information from symbols, diagrams, and graphs to make inferences, draw conclusions, and justify reasoning. • Make and test conjectures based on data (or information) collected from explorations and experiments. Grade 8 • Represent a linear function with a verbal description, table, graph, or symbolic expression, and make connections among these representations. • Determine the slope and y-intercept of a linear function described by a symbolic expression, table, or graph. • Interpret the slope and y-intercept of the graph of a linear function representing a contextual situation. • Determine and justify whether a given verbal description, table, graph, or symbolic expression represents a linear relationship. • Extract and organize mathematical information from symbols, diagrams, and graphs to make inferences, draw conclusions, and justify reasoning. • Make and test conjectures based on data (or information) collected from explorations and experiments.**Don’t forget the standards-Algebra**Algebra 1 • Represent a function with a symbolic expression, as a graph, in a table, and using words, and make connections among these representations. • Identify and interpret the slope and intercepts of a linear function, • Use and evaluate the accuracy of summary statistics to describe and compare data sets. • Make valid inferences and draw conclusions based on data. • Find the equation of a linear function that best fits bivariate data that are linearly related, interpret the slope and y-intercept of the line, and use the equation to make predictions. • Synthesize information to draw conclusions, and evaluate the arguments and conclusions of others. Algebra 2 • Analyze a problem situation and represent it mathematically. • Select and apply strategies to solve problems.
