1. Topic Of Lesson Plan-
Solving One-Step Equations
2. Lesson Content-
3. Goals And Expectations-
1.The learner will perform operations with numbers and expressions to solve problems.

4. Objectives-

1.. After instruction the student will be able to solve equations for a single variable.
2.The student will be able to correctly solve math problems involving order of operations.
3.The student will be able to use the inverse operation to solve equations.
5. Materials and Aids-
Smartboard, Dry erase boards, laptops, internet access
6. Methods Used and Procedures-

A. Introduction-

1.Anticipatory Set:
1) When the students enter after lunch, there will be directions on the smart board explaining how to get from the high school to Mc Donald’s in Wingate.
2) I will begin class by describing the following scenario. I was hoping to plan a class field trip to McDonald’s, but I only have directions telling me how to get to Mc Donald’s from the high school. So, I need your help to make sure we will be able to get back to our school without getting lost. With a partner, your task is to help me solve this problem by reversing the directions.
3) The students will work collaboratively for about five minutes.
4) We will compare answers as a class. Using a map on the overhead as a visual, I would have a student volunteer attempt to direct me back to school while I followed along on the map. The map would help to clearly illustrate any errors in their directions.
5) We would then discuss how they went about solving this problem, coming to the conclusion that the easiest way to figure out the directions would have been to work backward and to make the directions opposite, such as turn left instead of right, or head north instead of south. This idea of reversing and using opposites, would tie into solving equations.

B. Development-

1.Model how to use inverse operations in solving linear equations in the form x + a = b
twice. First teacher-led, then student-volunteer-led. From this, students solve a
series of equations that are in the form x + a = b on their own.

C. Practice-

1.I will give students a couple minutes to attempt these problems at their seats on their dry erase boards, and then have a student volunteer to show the solution on the board.

D. Independent Practice-

1.Students will be allowed to go to various websites provided to practice one-step equations. Each website interactive game will give feedback for correct and incorrect answers.

E. Accommodations For Students-

1.Students will be allowed to ask for assistance once first attempting the problem. Each student will be provided a calculator. Students will select their own website using their comfort level for the game as a decision factor.

F. Checking for understanding-

1.During warm up,note-taking, and guided practice, the students will be asked for thumbs up, side way or down to assess whether the concepts are being mastered. During the closure, the students verbal feedback will also give a clear assessment.

G. Closure-

1.Wrap up by orally reviewing the key points of the day’s lesson and focusing the students in on the concepts that were most important for them to grasp.
7. Evaluation-
1.Unit test.
