  1. 1. Summer Olympics 2008 Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] A WebQuest for 9th Grade (Math: Algebra I) Designed by Kaitlyn Wilson [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page
  2. 2. Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] The summer Olympics are just around the corner and Beijing needs your help! Mr. Yao was put in charge of the volleyball and basketball events. He has almost everything completed but still needs to figure out how many trainers and workers he needs to provide each team with. Mr. Yao is also in charge of determining how much money each trainer and event worker will make. Also, both sports will be played at the Beijing National Stadium. The Stadium already has the basketball courts set up, but Mr. Yao needs to figure out how many volleyball courts can be placed inside the event center. He wants to put as many courts as he can while still giving plenty of room between each court. Your expert math knowledge is needed and Mr. Yao is anxiously waiting for your help! Here are some guidelines that the Olympic Committee gave Mr. Yao: VOLLEYBALL 1) Mr. Yao was instructed to hire 10:1 trainer to player ratio. 2) Mr. Yao was instructed to hire 15:1 event worker to player ratio. 3)Volleyball will receive 19% of the total income brought in from the Olympics which will be used to pay both the trainers and workers. Trainers will get paid 1.5 times the amount workers get paid. BASKETBALL 1) Mr. Yao was instructed to hire 8:1 trainer to player ratio. 2)Mr. Yao was instructed to hire 12:1 event worker to player ratio. 3) Basketball receives 13% of the total income brought in from the Olympics which will be used to pay both the trainers and workers. The workers get paid ¾ the amount the trainers get paid.
  3. 3.

  8. 8. Summer Olympic 2008 (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page A WebQuest for 9th Grade (Math: Algebra I) Designed by Kaitlyn Wilson [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  9. 9. Introduction (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This WebQuest is designed to examine how well students can take a story problem and turn it into math equations. This WebQuest is about the Olympics that will be held in Beijing this coming summer. The students will solve different problems that include how much pay certain workers will receive based on the entire profit the Olympics bring in. The students will also need to solve problems that involve ratios and area. This lesson should be used when the students are learning about system of equations and solving for a unknown variable from those equations. Students will need previous knowledge about setting up equations and how to solve those equations. They will also need to already know how to take a percentage of a number and ratios of numbers, as they are need to solve the problem in this WebQuest. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  10. 10. Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson is designed for a Ninth grade Algebra I Math class. The lesson also can be tied in when the students are study Asia in their History or Geography Class as China is the place for the 2008 Summer Olympics. The learners will need to have previous knowledge about solving equations for an unknown variable and how to set up equations from a story problem. Some background knowledge about ratios and percentages may also be helpful. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  11. 11. Curriculum Standards (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page <ul><li>Math Standards Addressed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard 2.1, model real-world situations using functions, equations, inequalities and matrices. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard 5.1, measuring quantities indirectly using techniques of algebra, geometry, or trigonometry. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard 6.1, use ratios, proportions, and percents in problem-solving situations. </li></ul></ul>Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  12. 12. The Process (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Please view the “student” process slide to understand the steps the students will take to solve these problems presented in the WebQuest. This lesson should take several class periods, so the students can have plenty of time to complete the given task. Class time should be used to discuss the process the students will take and to review the skills needed to complete this assignment. Students may also be assigned steps of this WebQuest as homework which can be check the following day in class to assure they are doing the process correctly and setting up the equations properly. For example, a homework assignment could be finding out how much profit volleyball and basketball both receive, which will then be used to solve for how much the trainers and event workers will get paid. This WebQuest should be done individually and each student should hand in separate final Professional Portfolios. Each student may present their Professional Portfolios to the class (the Olympic Committee), or answers may be discussed as a whole class at the end of the unit. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  13. 13. Resources (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page The only materials needed to implement this lesson are either a class set of computers so each student can view the WebQuest or a class set of this assignment printed off in color so each student will have a hard copy of this WebQuest. Students will also need access to materials such as Word Processor, printers, markers, rulers, calculators, paper and anything else they may wish to use to create their Professional Portfolios. All information needed to complete this task can be found at The Official Website Of The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Just one teacher should be enough to complete this assignment but feel free to get assistance from computer tech to start the WebQuest. Also other people my assist during the duration of this assignment, as there are many parts and tasks to complete in this WebQuest. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  14. 14. Evaluation (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Students should have a complete understanding about system of equations and solving for unknown variable when they complete this assignment. The Professional Portfolios should be done as though the students were actually presenting them to the Olympic Committee. Students should walk away with a better understanding about these subjects and how math is used in everyday life. View the Evaluation in the Student Pages to see exactly what the students are expected to do in this WebQuest. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  15. 15. Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page <ul><li>The WebQuest model is best suited for learners who can navigate the Web on their own and can read the kinds of material commonly found on the Web. We can stretch the format to reach primary-aged learners, developmental English Language Learners and special populations by creating a facilitated WebQuest, one that requires an adult or older peer to drive things. </li></ul><ul><li>In the case this situation comes up in your classroom follow these steps (A facilitator may find it helpful to print these steps off so they can be viewed while working with the student). </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When starting this assignment, make sure the student first has an understanding of what they are being asked. Do they have any background knowledge about the Olympics so they can relate to the assignment better? Do they understand what an equation, ratio or percentage is? Ask them to explain these concepts to you in their own words. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Next help them navigate through the different sites helping them find the needed information? The links that are set up on the student process page will lead directly to the page where the information can be found. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Once they have found the information needed to complete the task, have them clearly write it down on a sheet of paper where they will show ALL their work. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They will probably need extra help setting up the equations and understanding why solving for an unknown variable will give them the answer they are looking for. Explain to them that the variable is a substitution for the number until they know what that number is. Show them that if you plug in that number where that variable was, the equation will be correct. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Spend an appropriate amount of time making sure the students understands where the equation came from and how it was solved, as this is the important part of the lesson. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This page is linked to the Process segment off of the Teacher Page </li></ul>Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  16. 16. Conclusion (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This WebQuest is a great assignment to do in class since many of the students will be watching the Olympics in a few short months. This assignment also allows students to take a real life story and turn it into a math problem that they can actually relate to while also solidifying the math concepts used in this WebQuest.
