Student expected response 
Do Now (8:30 – 8:40)/(10:00 –10:10) 
· Teacher walks around to greet students and check in with students about their do now and homework 
· Students complete 2 review/2 current unit problems independently 
HW Check 
· Teacher walks around to help/spot check student HW 
Students correct homework from board with problems shown. Students will ask questions in order to review misunderstood questions 
Mental Math (8:40 – 8:50) /(10:10 – 10:20) 
· Teacher reads and reveals a series of 6 problems – helping students to think of strategies to help students solve the problems · Teacher pulls sticks (cold call) to have students answer the questions 
· Students answer questions mentally, if stick is called they can answer and explain their answer choice. 
Mini Lesson (8:50 – 9:25)/(10:20 – 10:55) 
Opening: · Review inverse operations · Review three guiding questions: o What is the variable? o What operation is being performed on it? o What is the inverse operation? Intro: · Last week we started to solve onestep equations. As you remember, a onestep equation is an equation in which you need to do just one operation in order to know what the unknown’s value is. · Today we are going to continue to work on onestep equations but we are going to work with multiplication and division equations. · Review different ways that multiplication and division can be written – Multiplication: with parentheses/with the variable and coefficient written right next to each other Division: with a division sign or as a fraction – numerator is the dividend and denominator the divisor · Inverses: x and division. · Review using the inverse to solve a onestep problem. · Show an example (one division, one multiplication) to the students – have students focus on the steps Guided: · think pair share –what are the three questions to ask your self when solving a onestep equation. · With students solve an additional onestep multiplication and division equation · First equation should be with whole numbers, then with fractions (and negative integers) · Review the steps Independent: · Students will independently work on solving equations. · Students will move to working in pairs to solve equations · Pull advance group to work on multiplication/division equations with fractions ex: 2/3 d = 30 Closing: · What is the inverse of multiplication? Of division? · What are the three questions you should ask your self when solving these questions? · What are the steps to solving a onestep equation.


Skills Time (9:35 9:50) /(11:0511:25) 
· Hands on equation materials – students work in pairs – whisper level voices.
