Overview

Math nMotion tackles the very difficult concepts of graphing linear equations, inequalities, ratio and proportion and using data to make decisions through the example of racing Formula M cars.

It is keyed to 8th grade mathematics standards. Each section of this multimedia package contains the following components:

  • a three- to four-minute video in .m4v format that gives a brief overview of the concept and real-life examples of why we need to know it

  • a set of lesson plans that teach the concept

  • a professional development video that explains the main focus of the segment and what is included in each lesson

  • a formative and summative assessment for each section

Also included are resource sheets on the Formula M car, the TI-84 graphing calculator and on using Excel.
