As an introduction to bioengineering, student teams are given the engineering challenge to design and build prototype artificial limbs using a simple syringe system and limited resources. As part of a NASA lunar mission scenario, they determine which substance, water (liquid) or air (gas), makes the appendages more efficient.

Students conduct a simple experiment to see how the water level changes in a beaker when a lump of clay sinks in the water and when the same lump of clay is shaped into a bowl that floats in the water. They notice that the floating clay displaces more water than the sinking clay does, perhaps a surprising result. Then they determine the mass of water that is displaced when the clay floats in the water. A comparison of this mass to the mass of the clay itself reveals that they are approximately the same.

The purpose of this task is to give students practice working the formulas for the volume of cylinders, cones and spheres, in an engaging context that provides and opportunity to attach meaning to the answers.

This activity is an easy way to demonstrate the fundamental properties of polar and non-polar molecules (such as water and oil), how they interact, and the affect surfactants (such as soap) have on their interactions. Students see the behavior of oil and water when placed together, and the importance soap (a surfactant) plays in the mixing of oil and water which is why soap is used every day to clean greasy objects, such as hands and dishes. This activity is recommended for all levels of student, grades 3-12, as it can easily be scaled to meet any desired level of difficulty.

This task gives students an opportunity to work with volumes of cylinders, spheres and cones. Notice that the insight required increases as you move across the three glasses, from a simple application of the formula for the volume of a cylinder, to a situation requiring decomposition of the volume into two pieces, to one where a height must be calculated using the Pythagorean theorem.

In the first topic of this 15 day module, students learn the concept of a function and why functions are necessary for describing geometric concepts and occurrences in everyday life. Once a formal definition of a function is provided, students then consider functions of discrete and continuous rates and understand the difference between the two. Students apply their knowledge of linear equations and their graphs from Module 4 to graphs of linear functions. Students inspect the rate of change of linear functions and conclude that the rate of change is the slope of the graph of a line. They learn to interpret the equation y=mx+b as defining a linear function whose graph is a line. Students compare linear functions and their graphs and gain experience with non-linear functions as well. In the second and final topic of this module, students extend what they learned in Grade 7 about how to solve real-world and mathematical problems related to volume from simple solids to include problems that require the formulas for cones, cylinders, and spheres.

Module 7 begins with work related to the Pythagorean Theorem and right triangles. Before the lessons of this module are presented to students, it is important that the lessons in Modules 2 and 3 related to the Pythagorean Theorem are taught (M2: Lessons 15 and 16, M3: Lessons 13 and 14). In Modules 2 and 3, students used the Pythagorean Theorem to determine the unknown length of a right triangle. In cases where the side length was an integer, students computed the length. When the side length was not an integer, students left the answer in the form of x2=c, where c was not a perfect square number. Those solutions are revisited and are the motivation for learning about square roots and irrational numbers in general.

Students are presented with a guide to rain garden construction in an activity that culminates the unit and pulls together what they have learned and prepared in materials during the three previous associated activities. They learn about the four vertical zones that make up a typical rain garden with the purpose to cultivate natural infiltration of stormwater. Student groups create personal rain gardens planted with native species that can be installed on the school campus, within the surrounding community, or at students' homes to provide a green infrastructure and low-impact development technology solution for areas with poor drainage that often flood during storm events.

El módulo 7 comienza con el trabajo relacionado con el teorema de Pitágoras y los triángulos rectos. Antes de que se presenten las lecciones de este módulo a los estudiantes, es importante que las lecciones en los módulos 2 y 3 sean relacionadas con el teorema de Pitágoras se imparten (M2: Lecciones 15 y 16, M3: Lecciones 13 y 14). En los módulos 2 y 3, los estudiantes usaron el teorema de Pitágoras para determinar la longitud desconocida de un triángulo derecho. En los casos en que la longitud lateral era un entero, los estudiantes calcularon la longitud. Cuando la longitud lateral no era un entero, los estudiantes dejaron la respuesta en forma de x2 = c, donde C no era un número cuadrado perfecto. Esas soluciones se revisan y son la motivación para aprender sobre las raíces cuadradas y los números irracionales en general.

En el primer tema de este módulo de 15 días, los estudiantes aprenden el concepto de una función y por qué las funciones son necesarias para describir conceptos geométricos y ocurrencias en la vida cotidiana. Una vez que se proporciona una definición formal de una función, los estudiantes consideran funciones de tarifas discretas y continuas y comprenden la diferencia entre los dos. Los estudiantes aplican su conocimiento de las ecuaciones lineales y sus gráficos del módulo 4 a los gráficos de funciones lineales. Los estudiantes inspeccionan la tasa de cambio de funciones lineales y concluyen que la tasa de cambio es la pendiente de la gráfica de una línea. Aprenden a interpretar la ecuación y = mx+b como definir una función lineal cuyo gráfico es una línea. Los estudiantes comparan funciones lineales y sus gráficos y también obtienen experiencia con funciones no lineales. En el segundo y último tema de este módulo, los estudiantes extienden lo que aprendieron en el grado 7 sobre cómo resolver los problemas del mundo real y las matemáticas relacionadas con el volumen de sólidos simples para incluir problemas que requieren las fórmulas para conos, cilindros y esferas.
