Reflection: ELL Students Writing Algebraic Equations to Represent Real-World Scenarios (One-Step) - Section 2: Intro to New Material


The next several lessons in this unit can be difficult for my lowest readers.  Annotation is an important tool to help them make sense of the problems.  I also provide students with a graphic organizer that contains key words they should look out for and a space where students can add to the lists as we progress through the lessons.  Generally, I don't push kids to memorize key words, as I want them to make sense of what is happening in the problem, but this support for my lowest-reading students helps to give them an entry point into what can be difficult problems.

Writing Algebraic Equations to Represent Real-World Scenarios (One-Step)

Unit 8: Equations
Lesson 5 of 11

Objective: SWBAT write and solve one-step equations to represent real-world and mathematical problems.

Big Idea: Students will translate verbal expressions into algebraic equations to represent real-world problems starting by correctly identifying the variables and operations in the situation.
