Estimation 180 an estimation activity for each day of the year. Help student develop number sense and problem solving skills. Number Sense on the Number Line.doc shows how to place numbers on a number line to develop a awareness of the relative size of numbers. Also includes semantic feature analysis which facilitates comparing and contrasting. A sample is provided for number sets and types of equations. "Algebra on the Number Line" Mathematics Teacher December 2010 pages 379-382 has an article on using a number line for algebraic values. Several pages of worksheets are provided.

coordinate axis activities.doc Make your classroom, gym, or outdoor area into a coordinate grid and have students locate points, walk a specific slope, form point of an equation

Moving Bones worksheet.doc Students walk slow, walk fast, run, walk backwards as they record the time at each position. Points are graphs, slopes and velocity are determined to help students discover the relationship between slope and velocity.

Polar Coordinates This video and blog post promotes have students actually move around to plot polar points.
