Fences - student task
This task has students design a fence that meets the city ordinances and the client's specifications.


Flowing Through Mathematics
This student interactive simulates water flowing from a tube through a hole in the bottom. The diameter of the hole can be adjusted and data can be gathered for the height or volume of water in the tube at any time.


Framing a House - student task
This task has students recreate house plans on graph paper and then determine how many linear feet of wall plate material will be needed.


Fuel for Thought (pdf)
Students use mathematical reasoning to determine appropriate numerical measures and patterns in fuel consumption in order to inform consumer choice for vehicle purchasing. The task promotes a sophisticated use of number sense including careful attention to units. It is accessible to beginning high school students.


Lesson Starter: Solving Math Problems with a Team
Students will work in teams to solve mathematical problems; they listen to the reasoning of others and offer correction with supporting arguments; they modify their own arguments when corrected; they learn from mistakes and make repeated attempts at solving problems.


Mathline Activity III -- Pairwise Comparisons
A mock election is the premise of this lesson which helps the student understand the pairwise model of decision-making.


Modeling: Having Kittens
This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to interpret a situation and represent the constraints and variables mathematically, select appropriate mathematical methods to use, make sensible estimates and assumptions and investigate an exponentially increasing sequence.


Number and Quantity and Reason Quantitatively Curriculum Guide
The Utah State Office of Education (USOE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for the Secondary Mathematics 1 Cluster "Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems" / Standards N.Q.1, N.Q.2 and N.Q.3.


Secondary I Textbook
Secondary I Textbook is composed of modules that are aligned with the Utah Core State Standards for Mathematics. Each lesson begins with a worthwhile task that has been designed to develop mathematical understanding, solidify that understanding, or allow for practice of the new concepts, while focusing on the mathematical goals of the chosen learning cycle.

Serving Up Symbols - A Develop Understanding Task
Interpreting expressions and using units to understand problems (A.SSE.1, N.Q.1) Getting Ready Module - Task 3


Serving Up Symbols - Teacher Notes
Teacher Notes for "Serving Up Symbols - A Develop Understanding" task. (A.SSE.1, N.Q.1) Getting Ready Module - Task 3


Storage Shed - student task
Students are going to build storage sheds as a fund raising project, but before they can start they must determine the best dimensions for the shed, make scale drawings and decide on how much to charge for each shed.


Student Task: Leaky Faucet
The student's task is to determine how much water a dripping faucet might waste in a year.


Student Task: Yogurt
In this task, students must calculate how much yogurt is produced by a machine at a food company.
