Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans
Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.
No Interest If Paid in Full: How Much Do I Owe?
Students will write a linear equation from a real-world situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.
Working with Literal Equations
The lesson will provide a conceptual basis for illustrating the parallelism between solving multi-step equations and translating literal equations into solutions for specified variables.
To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
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.
Students will collaborate to solve a word problem involving rates of change using their prior knowledge and create a graph and/or table showing their work.
