LESSON PLAN EXAMPLES:
Welcome to my lesson plan page. Below is highlighting some lessons that I either created, or modified from existing content. I will always do my best to give appropriate credit and cite sources. Please contact me if you have better information on original sources so that I can update my page accordingly.
These lessons were made for a classroom with 11 computer access and are embedded into larger units. They may not cover all content needed to complete the lesson and are assuming some background knowledge for students and facilitator. 
Parabolic FitThis is an exploration of quadratic structure using Desmos. Desmos is a free graphing utility that supports student understanding nicely for this lesson. Through this lesson students begin to understand the vertex and standard forms of a second degree polynomial.

Lunar EclipseStudents use similar triangles and/or trigonometry to calculate the distance to the moon by observing a lunar eclipse. This is similar to how some of the first calculations for the EarthMoon distance were calculated.

Counting ZombiesThis lesson is a reworked example from the Shell Center Team, originally titled "Counting Trees." Here I simply reinterpreted a fun estimation problem to make it more relevant to High School students.
