Students Working and Student Work
Carnegie Learning’s computerized math program was used with students
that traditionally struggled with learning mathematics.
Each school purchased a mobile lab, using computers for instruction,
review, math games and explorations, and assessments.
Unit One-The Real Number System
By: Natalie H.
North of Peru, centered on Yucatan Peninsula in
Central and South America
Mayans had as many as twenty states
The Mayan civilization existed 3,000 years
It had written language, architecture, a wellordered social class system, agriculture, art, the
development of a calendar, trade and a welldeveloped religious system.
They had 30 different languages.
Mayan Number System
Had 3 symbols
instead of our 10
Shell represents 0
Dot represents 1
Bar represents 5
Ex. 3 bars and 1
dot would be 16
Digits are stacked
with the higher
significant digit at
Ex. Look at 24, the
dot at the top of 24
would equal 20 plus
the 4 underneath
(Remember they counted
Mayan numbers existed as far back as the early classic
period (400 A.D.)
The Mayans had the first zero
The Mayans used a base twenty system
Numbers can be illustrated by face type glyphs but
were hardly used.
For Unit One-The Real Number System students used
graphing calculators to support their learning about numbers.
Unit 2-Solving Equations and Inequalities
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives
As a culminating activity for Unit 2-Solving Equations and Inequalities, students
were asked to develop a Windows Movie Maker file as the medium for presenting a
story problem that required them to solve, at least, a two step equation. Here is an
Unit 3 Proportional and Linear Relationships CBRs are used as a tool to
help student develop understanding about linear graphs.
Unit 4-Analyzing real world linear data
Oquirrh Hills Middle School-InTech Algebra Unit 3 Assessment-Create Your Own Constellation
Name ________________________________ Date __________________Period ____ Due Date_____________
Create a picture on a coordinate grid that represents something about you.
Choose at least seven dominant points. Points must be in each of the four quadrants.
Connect those points with straight lines to create a constellation. At least four lines must not be horizontal or vertical.
Write the equation for each line, at least six equations – use the attached worksheet. Equations must be written in red ink. After
you have your equations complete, have your teacher’s initial your work.
You will then open the Geometer’s Sketchpad (GSP) and draw your constellation in it. Save your work on the desktop. You will
use GSP to check your constellation equations. You must write the correct equation from the GSP in blue ink below your
red inked answer.
Write a paragraph (at least five sentences) that explains the constellation and your story behind it.
You will be graded on neatness and accuracy of your picture (20 points), linear equations (60 points), and paragraph (20 points).
The entire project is worth 50 points.

The constellation below represents the bull which was a significant figure in a town that I lived
for many years. The bull was honored for its courage and strength. It was celebrated each
weekend in Mexicali, a Mexican city across the border from where I lived. The bullring was
festive with excitement at each of the bullfights. The courage of the bullfighter and the bull were

Unit 5 Solve Systems of Equations and Inequalities-Students used graphing
calculators, GSP, and a SmartBoard to find solutions using systems of equations and
Changes: John DeSandre in Price, shortly before school began, had his
assignment changed to teaching science and geometry. He adapted his plans
quickly to continue integrating technology as a tool for instruction, Here are
student works on GSP on constructing Parallel lines and parallelograms.

1918 Spanish flu
Some Facts about the flu
The Spanish flu occurred in
1918- 1919 about 25 million
people died including about
In India the rate was extremely
high at around 50 deaths from
influenza per 1,000 people!
Science reveals another US
team has successfully
recreated the 1918 virus in
How Many People died
It Started just as 40 to 50
Then 50 to 100 million

Student e portfolios
January 19, 2008
The Internet provides a unique opportunity for students to display, share, and communicate about their school
work with their family and other students.
As part of an ongoing collaboration with the Carbon School District through Project InTech, my Algebra I classes
at OHMS will be creating an individual web page for each student. Project InTech is a pilot for future teacher
professional development as established by the Utah Office of Education. This project focuses on helping teachers use
technological tools to enhance mathematics instruction. Student e-portfolios is one part of this project.
For more information on InTech please access InTech’s web page at http://www.seutips.org/~intech/. My web
page may also be accessed at www.lewisinmath.wikispaces.com.
Student web pages will allow students to create electronic web portfolios to display student work for viewing by
other students and their parents. These web pages will be set up through the Southeastern Utah Test Item Pool
Service (SEUTIPS) and are free for students to use as part of Project InTech. SEUTIPS is part of a statewide network
that teachers use for testing and for teacher web pages. Important information to know about SEUTIPS includes:
The site is secure and password protected;
Students will use their intials to protect their name;
All student work may be viewed by parents and students using a password to access the portfolio;
Students may publish specific projects that will be viewable on the open web or keep their site viewable only through a password;
Each math teacher will be able to access each site to score student work and review the site for proper;
Each student will own the copyright on all materials they create and then post to their portfolio or publish on the Internet;
Students may not post photos of themselves without the approval of parents indicated on the goldenrod permission slip;
Student web sites will be the property of each student and their parents with parents deciding on the continuation of the
web page after June 10, 2008. All guidelines of the Jordan School District Student Information Network Acceptable
Use Policy must be adhered to. Each student is not required to create a web portfolio. They must have the goldenrod
Jordan School District permission slip signed by students and parents to have their own web portfolio. Students that do
not create a web portfolio will create a portfolio saved on a CD.
Plans for upcoming year
Simplify the process
Develop thoroughly one or more technology
based focus for each unit.
Plan a curriculum map which incorporates the
technology focuses and allows for adequate
time for implementation.
