I plotted 2 points in Desmos, (2 toppings, 13.85) and (4 toppings, 16.99), both are medium pizzas. I asked students to get the price per topping which is the slope and subtract it two times from \$13.85 to get the base price or the y-intercept. We tested the equation by opening the website of pizza hut. Students are able to compare the prices as well as qualities of the pizza stores. In this activity I was able to engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources. The activity was followed by developing students’ conceptual understanding of slope intercept form. With the prices fresh in my students’ minds, we came up with slope’s formula of y2 – y1 over x2 – x1 or the prices of 4 toppings subtracted by the price of 2 toppings over the difference in the number of toppings. They projected the lines until they get the y-intercept. Students checked the validity of their equations using Desmos online graphing calculator. This activity helped me develop technology-enriched learning environments, managing their own learning and assessing their own…

Related rates are used in a wide variety of different scenarios from finding how large a spill is increasing, to how fast it may take to empty something. Related rates deal with time, usually have two different variables like height, length, radius, or width; and have something that is changing like area, distance, or volume. In order to solve related rates problems you need to be able to recall or have access to basic geometry formulas like circle, cone, cylinder, rectangle, triangle and…

violent fusion through intense heat and sand into a mammoth chuck of quartzite.” (History of Ski Area, n.d.) At 1,924 feet above sea level, Rib Mountain is the second highest point in Wisconsin.

The Conservation Department agreed and accepted a donation of 40 acres in 1923 (Rib Mountain State…

Introduction: Ski jumping is one of the competitive sports with the Olympian ideal of going faster, jumping further and leaping higher than the opposition (Muller 269). However, sometimes accidents happen. For example, Thomas Morgenstern crashed during a trial round for the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup in Bad Mitterndorf. Later, he was hospitalized with skull injuries and a bruised lung (The Associated Press). Then, why did this accident happen? What influenced the performance of Morgenstern and…

Soft whooshing sounds rose up from beneath my skis as they slid across the soft crystal like snow glistening in the bright winter sun. The cool and crisp air was the ideal temperature for a day of skiing, not too cold to make it uncomfortable, but still cold enough to keep the snow from melting and turning slushy. With these snow conditions and bright blue skies above, all in all, it looked to be a perfect day for skiing with my family. Accompanied by my Mom, Uncle, and 4 cousins, we woke at…

chemistry when I am preparing for ski races, waxing my skis. Preparing my skis for a race weekend requires applying multiple layers of wax to my skis. The wax we use is commonly a fluorocarbon mixture. In order for the wax to be saturated into the ski, the block must be melted with an iron. Once the wax melts on the iron, the wax is dripped onto the entire ski. In order to ensure that the wax is melted into the ski, a hand iron is slid down the ski several times. Once the ski cools from…

My heart was racing as I buckled my second foot in the boot; I was then ready to go down the mountain for my first time.

Immediately I jumped towards the package in desperation. As I teared its red wrapping paper off i noticed that it was a pair of skis. Right then my Mom walked into the living room and told me that this would be the year that I skied. Naturally being a six year old i didn't appreciate the notion right…

I was eight when I first understood the value of pushing myself, yet taking calculated risks. It took physical and mental pain to realize this; however, my early experiences became the catalysts for what would become a driving force of my personality. My first lesson in the danger of blind risk was when I attempted skiing with a group of experts just to make friends. I should have taken the bunny hill. I started out shaky; soon the ground beneath began passing faster. Before I knew it, the…
