Removing Invasives

This unit integrates math, science, and language arts standards and is designed for collaboration with a marine science community partner. Students will continue to develop fluency in solving and interpreting linear equations and inequalities through the use of tables and graphs. They will encounter issues dealing with invasive species, fishing restrictions, and overpopulation throughout the unit. The unit culminates in a task where students advocate for the value of a volunteer.
This curriculum is still under review by faculty. Units identified as Under Review have been submitted by educators. While they are available to view now, they are currently being reviewed by our curriculum committee for addition to this site.
