### Unit: Math Bits

**Hour 1: Math Bits - Differentials**- Differentials
- Zapping with d

**Hours 2-3: Math Bits - Variables and Representations***Small Group Activity: Exploring the Partial Derivative Machine*- Partial Derivative Machine dictionary

**Hour 4: Math Bits - Energy and Integrals***dU*- Numerical Integration

**Hours 5-6: Math Bits - Derivatives and Chain Rules**- Chain Rules
*Small Group Activity: PDM Derivatives*

- Chain Rule Diagrams

**Hour 7: Math Bits - The Elevator Cycle***Small Group Activity: The Elevator Cycle*

- Some notes on how Math Bits might change:
- The elevator/cycles problem is now done below, so can be dropped
- There are two surfaces activities that fit well with Math Bits
*Thermodynamic States*(I would do this one before starting the PDM)*Covariation in Thermal Systems*(I would do this one on Friday as a bridge back to Thermodynamics)- We also have
*Quantifying Change in Thermal Systems*which is quick and could go anywhere or be left out (it is primarily a contour map activity).

- Something else probably needs to be dropped. I would probably recommend Numerical Integration (or at least it can be minimized), though the ideas here should be brought back for the elevator cycle activity, which looks to have 2 hours below which is more than we gave it.
- Other surfaces activities that fit well below:
*Heat Capacity of Water Vapor**“Squishability” of Water Vapor*
