Reviewer Comments:

This is a published resource by TOMT, the journal of the Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics (OCTM). This resource includes two great ideas for real life activities: Enlightenment 2020 and Is that Ticket Fair. Specific instructions or data sheets for activities are not included so research and development time need to be completed before either activity can be done in classroom; consulting/incorporating science teacher may make project easier to accomplish. A more in-depth explanation of the Enlightenment 2020 activity is found (in pdf form) http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_BobandGeorge/InvestigationBackpack01Enlightenment2020?bc=;Coll_BobandGeorge.InvestigationBackpack Is that Ticket Fair? content includes solving a system of equations involving linear and quadratics. This activity involves looking at timing of red lights and how tickets are distributed by police. This resource provides a great connection for older students getting ready to take drivers license exam.
