I am a teacher at Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus, GA. I taught Mathematics I in 2008-09 and Mathematics II in 2009-10. I am currently teaching Mathematics III and Mathematics III Support. I have looped for three years with (mostly) the same students.

You are welcome to use anything on this page. Just please give credit where it is due. If my name is in the footer of a page, please do not delete it. You are welcome to add your name as having adapted the task, too, but please leave mine there. Thanks! :)

Below you will find tasks for Mathematics I, II, and III. Feel free to use what you like and adjust as necessary to meet the needs of your students.

**Mathematics I**

Unit 2 Just Jogging - I used this as a summative assessment. I helped the class as a whole group get started. MM1 Unit 2 Just Jogging Learning Task.pdf

Unit 3 Amusement Park Task - This task focuses on the incenter, orthocenter, circumcenter, and centroid of a triangle. I used this as a summative assessment. MM1 Unit 3 Amusement Park task.pdf MM1 Unit 3 Amusement Park task worksheet.pdf

Unit 5 Even vs. Odd Functions - This is a learning task, developed from the "Logo Symmetry" task in the Frameworks. MM1 Unit 5 Even vs Odd Functions.Merritt.Jordan.pdf

Unit 6 Quadrilaterals Revisited - This task reviews the properties of quadrilaterals learned in Unit 3 and reinforces the newly learned concept of the distance formula.MM1 Unit 6 Quadrilaterals Revisited Learning Task.pdf

**Mathematics II**

Unit 1 Here - Catch! - This is the first Protein Bar Toss task. Most of this task was used as a learning task. I graded problem #7 for accuracy.MM2 Unit 1 Protein Bar Toss Learning Task.pdf

Unit 2 Create Your Own Traingles/Discovering Trig Ratios - This learning task combines two of the Frameworks tasks.MM2 Unit 2 Create Own Triangles - Discover Trig Ratios Tasks.pdf

Unit 3 Circles Project - This is a summative assessment for the Circle unit.MM2 Unit 3 Circles Performance Task PROJECT LIST.pdf MM2 Unit 3 Circles Performance Task RUBRIC.pdf

Unit 4 Backward Math - Developed from Task 2 of the Frameworks. I used this as a summative assessment. I helped them with the first two problems. MM2 Unit 4 Task 2 BACKWARD MATH.pdf

Unit 5 Characteristics of Pieceside Functions - This is a worksheet I created using Geometer's Sketchpad. MM2 Unit 5 Characteristics of Piecewise Functions.pdf

Unit 6 Arm Span vs. Height - Students worked in groups to complete. I used it as a summative assessment. MM2 Unit 6 Arm Span vs Height.pdf

**Mathematics III**

Unit 1 Okefenokee Food Web - This task requires students to create a matrix given a vertex-edge graph. At the end of the task is a writing assignment. My students really enjoyed this one. I used it as a summative assessment. They were allowed to work in groups of 3-4. An Okefenokee Food Web task.pdf

Unit 2 - At the beginning of this unit, I reviewed previously learned function families and their characteristics with my students. This sheet was a summative assessment I used after reviewing quadratics.You remember quadratics dont you.pdf

Unit 3 Investiagting the Properties of Logarithms - This task is in Unit 4 of the Frameworks. I felt it made more sense to teach it in Unit 3 with the rest of the logs. It is a learning task.MM3 Unit 3 Investigating the Properties of Logarithms.pdf

Unit 4 Solving Equations and Inequalities - I did not teach Unit 4 from the Frameworks as its own unit. I taught solving polynomial functions in Unit 2, and solving exponential and logarithmic functions in Unit 3.

Unit 5 Conic Sections - This task introduces students to writing equations of circles in general conic form. It is adapted from the Unit 5 Frameworks.All About Circles task.pdf

Unit 6 Data Analysis - The two attached tasks are from the same Frameworks same. I used the first one (Let's Review Standard Deviation) as a learning task and a Math III Support grade. The second task (Show Me You Remember Standard Deviation) was used as a summative assessment for a Math III grade.Lets review standard deviation.pdf Show Me You Remember Standard Deviation.pdf
