Big Idea:Ben’s mom gives him the option of grooming 3 horses or mowing 2 fields. Which job should Ben choose? Why? Students use their knowledge of algebraic expressions and equations to write expressions and equations.
Big Idea:Paul Pierce made 14 more points than Kevin Garnett. Let k represent Kevin Garnett’s points. Write an expression to show how many points Pierce made. If Pierce made 26 points, how many points did Garnett make? Students work on writing and solving equat
Big Idea:How can you write an equation to represent the cost, c, of renting a bike for h hours? How much would it cost to rent a bike for 3 hours from each shop? Students work with one and two-step equations.
Big Idea:For the equation y = 3x + 4, if y is 25 what must x equal? Students work with input-output tables and then work together to create equations, tables, and graphs to represent various situations.
Big Idea:What are the similarities and differences between expressions, equations, and inequalities? What do students understand? What gaps do they have in their understanding? Students review and take the quiz.
Big Idea:What are similarities and differences between these figures? What expressions represent the perimeter and area of each figure? Students combine like terms and create expressions to represent the perimeter and area of figures created with algebra tiles.
Big Idea:The area of a rectangle is x^2 + 10x. How can you represent this area as a product? Students apply their knowledge of area and the distributive property to expand and factor algebraic expressions.
Big Idea:What is going on in the problem? What are you trying to figure out? How can you use variables to represent what is going on? Students apply the skills they have learned throughout Unit 6 to complex tasks.
