One and Two Step Equations Test - Section 2: Explore

Looking at the results from today's test, Two Step Mastery Graph and Two Step Tracker Comparison, overall I am very pleased. I set mastery for this test at 90% and near mastery at 85%, thus any student below 85% fell in the remedial level. My third block is my inclusion group, so it is not suprising to me that there was a higher percentage of remedial scores in that class. I am going try and pull those students in during our morning time to reteach equations using Hands On Equations. I feel good that students will be able to move forward now to solving word problems involving one and two step equations.

# One and Two Step Equations Test

Lesson 10 of 22

## Objective: Students will be able to set up and solve one and two step equations.

#### Launch

*10 min*

**Opener **As students enter the room, they will immediately pick up and begin working on the opener – Instructional Strategy - Process for openers. This method of working and going over the opener lends itself to allow students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, which is **mathematical practice 3**.

**Learning Target: **After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. For today's lesson, the intended target is “I can set up and solve one and two-step equations.” Students will jot the learning target down in their agendas (our version of a student planner, there is a place to write the learning target for every day).

**One and Two Step Equations Test:** Today's test consists of 20 problems, and I will utilitze Mastery Connect to assess the results and give immediate feedback to students. To get problems right, students will need to pay close attention to precision (**mathematical practice 6**) - are they using the correct inverse operations? Have they determined the correct sign of the term they are working with? Did they attempt to check their answers? Given that this is a test, students will need to persevere with problems until they can reach a solution (**mathematical practice 1**). A few questions on the test will require students to reason quantitatively given real world applications (**mathematical practice 2/4**).
