To be literate in a society where the information shared online is often exploited, learners should be exposed to multiple aspects of contemporary predictive modeling. Explore a lesson in which students learned an algorithm used in practice to automate the process of making recommendations.
Inspired by epidemic curves, this class developed a spreadsheet model of an epidemic to compare outcomes with and without protective measures.
During a Desmos activity, students adjust the measures of angles in radians to reposition a laser and a mirror so the beam passes through three stationary targets. The Radian Lasers activity can be extended to simulate project-based learning.
Show your students how useful mathematics can be in real-world applications.
