# Trigonometry

(View Complete Item Description)

Book description: This is a text on elementary trigonometry, designed for students who have completed courses in high-school algebra and geometry. Though designed for college students, it could also be used in high schools. The traditional topics are covered, but a more geometrical approach is taken than usual. Also, some numerical methods (e.g. the secant method for solving trigonometric equations) are discussed. A brief tutorial on using Gnuplot to graph trigonometric functions is included. There are 495 exercises in the book, with answers and hints to selected exercises.

# Math in a Cultural Context

(View Complete Item Description)

Math in a Cultural Context (MCC) is a long-term set of interrelated sponsored research, funded by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Education and by support from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Math in a Cultural Context is a rather extraordinary three decades-long collaboration of educators, Yup’ik elders and teachers, mathematicians and math educators, Alaskan school districts, and more recently includes Greenlandic Inuit, Sami, and Pacific Islander partners. We have had the privilege to learn together and understand how the underlying principles that support everyday practical knowledge can inform teaching and learning in a school context. Central to MCC is its long-term collaboration with Yup’ik elders, teachers, and academics that developed into a vibrant learning community. We are deeply inspired by the steadfast support of so many elders who shared their knowledge. Alaskan school districts and teachers opened their classrooms to MCC as we developed, tested, and revised our materials and pedagogical approach.

# Math: Catching Pacific Lamprey at Willamette Falls

(View Complete Item Description)

Lamprey were an important food source for many Native American tribes in Oregon, particularly those in coastal areas and along the Columbia River watershed, and they continue to be an important link to traditional cultural practices. Like salmon, lamprey are anadromous, meaning they are born in fresh water, spend most of their life in the ocean, and return to freshwater to spawn. Sustaining the population of lamprey has always been important to Native people, and one way to do that is by not overharvesting. In previous generations this was not a problem, but hydroelectric dams, pollution, and destruction of habitat have all led to a drastic reduction in the lamprey population over the past century. Today, tribal biologists use both traditional and Western scientific methods—such as fish tagging—to protect and preserve lamprey, salmon, and other aquatic species. Using this real-world context, this lesson engages students in a mathematical process to determine the weights of lamprey using a fraction with each fraction having the same denominator, organizing the lamprey on a number line from lowest to highest weight, and comparing the weights of lamprey in decimal format.

# Math: Getting to Know Native Americans in Oregon

(View Complete Item Description)

This lesson uses a dataset and simple mathematical operations to teach grade 4 students important facts about Native American people in Oregon. In the process, it begins to correct several common misperceptions and to build students’ awareness of the active role Native Americans play in contemporary Oregon culture. Students will learn about the nine federally recognized tribes in Oregon, including tribal membership, tribal lands, and the number of people employed by each tribe. This will give them a basic understanding of the presence of Native people in the state. Students will also be introduced to two key aspects of the complex relationship between Native American tribes and the U.S. government: termination and restoration. While the lesson does not cover these elements in depth, it lays the groundwork for future lessons and further understanding.

# Math: Philanthropy

(View Complete Item Description)

Philanthropy is a core value of Native American tribes in Oregon. Many tribes refer to this as the “spirit of potlatch,” which is a tradition that goes back hundreds and possibly thousands of years. In this spirit, many tribes have created charitable foundations or funds to support causes that benefit the local and surrounding communities. Collectively, tribal foundations are among the largest sources of philanthropy in Oregon.This lesson uses the mathematical practice of fractions to introduce students to Native philanthropy. Students are given a dataset and asked to perform fraction concepts and justify their choices as part of a philanthropic effort. Students will be addressing Critical Areas 1 and 2 while addressing mathematical practices.

# Illustrative Mathematics Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2

(View Complete Item Description)

IM Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 are problem-based core curricula rooted in content and practice standards to foster learning and achievement for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language. Teachers can shift their instruction and facilitate student learning with high-leverage routines that guide them in understanding and making connections between concepts and procedures. IM 9-12 Math, authored by Illustrative Mathematics, is highly rated by EdReports for meeting all expectations across all three review gateways. Students who struggle in Algebra 1 are more likely to struggle in subsequent math courses and experience more adverse outcomes. The Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials are designed to help students who need additional support in their Algebra 1 course. Each Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials lesson is associated with a lesson in the Algebra 1 course. The intention is that students experience each Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials lesson before its associated Algebra 1 lesson. The Algebra 1 Extra Support Materials lesson helps students learn or remember a skill or concept that is needed to access and find success with the associated Algebra 1 lesson.

# High School Core 2: Geometry (Oregon Blueprint, Version 1)

(View Complete Item Description)

This ½ credit Geometry class is designed as one component of Oregon’s “core 2” mathematics sequence for grade 9 and 10 students. In addition to this course, students should have access to 1 credit worth of Algebra standards and ½ credit of Data Reasoning. This course is designed to be implemented by an instructor steeped in the four cornerstones of the Oregon Math Project. In particular, the course centers “belonging” in its design for heterogeneous, detracked classrooms and “engagement” as it anchors relevant and hands-on activities. Unit options are provided so that teachers can make informed decisions based on their unique contexts.
