### Rainbow Parabolas

Have you or your students ever wondered how a graphing calculator is programmed? Well in this festive lesson “Rainbow Parabolas” (inspired by amazing work of Ontario educators Lisa Ann Floyd, George Gadanidis, and Jeff Cummings) you’ll code your first graphing calculator and work to apply your own magical transformation knowledge! Idea taken from this Tweet…

### Rainbow Parabolas: Scratch

Emphasis: Algebra/ Quadratics Creator: Mike Larson     Twitter: @boundsofoutmath @lisaannfloyd @georgegadanidis  @MrJCummings Students will have created their very own graphing calculator and explore it using various transformations of a Rainbow Parabola View Lesson Here

### How Will you Pay?

Students will create a program that will ask them the amount of their bill. Then they will get to choose what bills and coins they will use to pay their bill. Â  Lesson Plan: Student and Teacher Guide , -Ashley Tewes

### How Will you Pay?: Scratch

Emphasis: Number and Operation Creator: Ashley Tewes     Twitter: @ashleyanntewes Students will create a program that will ask for their bill amount and how much they want to tip. Then, the program will calculate the final amount they will pay including their bill and tip. View Lesson Here

### How Safe is Safe?

If your students are like ours, they’re hungry to get as many applications of money in math class as possible?Â  Let’s feed this hunger and help them grow in their financial literacy!Â  In this lesson, students will explore exponential decay through the lens of inflation and the future value of \$1000. P.S. Certainly this is…

### How Safe is Safe: Scratch

Emphasis: Exponential Growth and Decay Creator: Mike Larson    Twitter: @boundsofoutmath Students will understand the power of exponential growth and be able to write programs that allow them to solve problems related to arithmetic and geometric sequences including the Legend of the Chessboard story.
