Big Idea:: Students will need a strong background in distributive property when simplifying expressions. This is a great lesson to fill in gaps with students who may lack understanding with distributive property.
Big Idea:Let’s go from bananas and apples to variables and constant terms. Students will transfer their understanding in combining every day objects to simplify a scenario to simplifying mathematical expressions.
Big Idea:Let’s get hands on! Students will use classroom items to help determine when and how to combine like items. This will transition to deeper understanding in combining like terms mathematically.
Big Idea:This pre assessment will help you develop a well tailored unit to fit the needs of your students. You may choose some or all of the problems from the pre assessment, you may also add to the assessment questions as you see fit.
Big Idea:SWBAT see the impact of the vocabulary student resource over their understanding that they created in the expression and equation vocabulary mini unit. Let's see if they pull it out on their own, practicing MP 5.
Big Idea:This is a great build up lesson toward solving 2 step 2 variable equations. Students will use a variety of mathematical practices in order to grapple through real world problems involving solving 1 variable 1 step equations.
Big Idea:Let's use prior understanding! We will use our understanding of order of operations, and operation of integers to solve algebraic expressions with one variable and multiple operations and integer substitution.
Big Idea:With or without the calculator, students will need a strong understanding of order of operations to grapple through these expressions. Pump it up a bit and see what they can do without the calculator first.
Big Idea:Students will draw heavily on mathematical practices 1 and 2 to help navigate through text in order to solve multi-step, real world word problems, involving different forms of rational numbers.
