###
Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents

This lesson helps students understand two foundational exponential properties: The Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents. Students will collaborate to formulate a rule for these properties. Ultimately, students should conclude that when the same bases are being multiplied, exponents will be added; and when the same bases are being divided, exponents will be subtracted. As the lesson progresses, students will apply these rules to simplify expressions of various difficulties.

###
Finding Clues to Solve Equations and Inequalities

**Students will solve one variable two-step equations and inequalities using a variety of materials while working independently and collaboratively in learning stations.**

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Strike a Pose

The students will solve two-step equations through modeling, expressing algebraically, and writing out the steps to their solutions.

###
Rational Number Stations

**Students will visit two different stations and work as a group to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.**

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Centers in Subtraction

**Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts. **

###
Solving Equations and Inequalities

Students will be divided into four groups and work on their assigned task to become an expert. They will match vocabulary terms with definitions and examples, use the “Pass the Pen” strategy to create and solve equations or inequalities, or write a real-world problem for an equation given. The experts will then teach these concepts to their peers.

###
Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans

**Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.**

###
Courts of Measure

Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.

###
Express Yourself

Students determine which expression is a truth or a lie by generating equivalent expressions.

###
Keep Your Balance!

**Students are introduced to solving one-variable, one-step equations using addition and subtraction through models and hands-on activities. The students will learn the substitution method of checking answers.**

###
Perfecting Percents

Students will engage in an activity that allows them to explore the different parts of percents: part, whole, and percent, and develop conceptual understanding of percents through the Concrete, Representational, Abstract (CRA) method of instruction.

###
More Super Duper Math

**Students will gather objects to compare quantities and justify their answers pictorially and verbally. They will use their vocabulary posters and accountable talk menus to discuss with their partners. **

###
Perfectly Proportional Percents

Students will collaborate to explain verbally how to solve percent proportions and scaling while showing their thinking.

###
Particular Polygons

Students will be able to classify 2D figures by analyzing their attributes.

###
Transformations of Absolute Value Functions

Given an absolute value function, the student will analyze the effect on the graph when f(x) is replaced by af(x), f(bx), f(x – c), and f(x) + d for specific positive and negative real values.

###
The Picture Graph Party

Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

###
Trip to the Theme Park

Students will work on a real-world based project in class involving multiplication of decimals requiring budgeting skills.

###
Modeling and Solving Two-Step Equations

Students will use various materials to create models of two-step equations. Then, they will take an equation, create their own model, and solve for the variable from the model.
