Unit Extension Projects and PBLs:

**Choice 1:**

**Equations are everywhere!**

**Task:**Find a formula that is used in the real world, and research it. (formula must be approved by Mrs. Foster to continue with presentation)

**Submission:**You must create some form of presentation on the formula that you have researched, to submit to me (you do not have to actually present it to me, but you may choose to present it to me and the class). Some ideas are: a written report using word and it's equation editor, a web poster using newhive.com or google presentation, a presentation using powerpoint, or google presentation, a preziscreencast, a video (materials can be checked out in the library by me), or any other idea that has been approved by me.

**Details to include in Presentation:**

1) Show the formula

2) Explain the formula

- Explain what it is used for

- Discuss how and why it was created

- Describe how and why it works

3) Include any other facts and information about the formula that might be interesting.

4) Discuss why you chose the formula and what it means to you

5) Have fun with it!

This project is yours to have fun with so include anything you want on top of everything else. Make an information poster or design a lesson or presentation meant for teaching a class.

Some ideas for finding a formula to research would be:

Banking Formulas, Automotive Formulas, Plumbing Equations and Formulas, Electrician Equations and Formulas, Fire Equations, Accounting Ratios and Formulas, Economics Equations and Formulas, Financial Equations, Interest Equations, Fitness formulas, Chemistry Formulas, Physics Formulas, Medical Equations and Formulas, Electronics Equations and Formulas, Wave Equations, Volume and Surface Area Formulas, sports formula, Surveying formulas and equations.

**Choice 2:**

**Teach Students How To Solve Equations:**

**Task:**Every student learns differently. Create an engaging lesson that you could use to teach future 8th grade students or advanced 7th grade students how to solve multi-step equations.

**Submission:**You must create a lesson that you could either post online, teach to a small group, or teach to a whole class that could teach solving multi-step equations in an engaging and fun to learn way.

**Details:**Make sure that your lesson is clear enough that someone else other than you could teach it. Remember, there is more than one way to approach solving equations, and everyone learns differently.
