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 teacherled, then studentvolunteerled. 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 onestep 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,notetaking, 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.
