## 6th - 12th Grade: Math

• Create a portfolio of the work you have done so far this year.
• Choose a problem from your classwork, homework, or quiz or test from a previous unit and re-do the problem to showcase the math and your thinking.
• Show and explain each step clearly.
• If possible, use multiple representations: table, graph, words, equation.
• By the end of each week, you should have three problems written up that illustrate some of your learning from this year.
• Ask a family member or a friend for a number (or two or three or four numbers). Create three math problems that have that number as a solution.
• Online
• Search for a graph that represents something in the real world. Write a few sentences describing what the graph shows. Be sure to describe the variables (look at the axes). Here are some sentence frames you might choose to use:
• “I notice…”
• “I think this graph is saying that if___ then___ . I think this because I see___.”
• “I wonder ___.”
• “This graph makes me think about…”
• Challenge: Pick two graphs and say how these two graphs are similar and different.
• “These graphs both say___ because___.”
• “The difference in these two graphs is ___.”
• Find a graph that is modeling growth. Describe how the model helps us see how this data seems to grow. (Algebra 1, Algebra 2)
• Use words and phrases like: linear growth, exponential growth, growing by adding, growing by multiplying, starting number
• Repeat for a graph modeling decay!
