|Subject Area||Honors Math|
|Unit of Instruction||Expressions and Equations|
Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• use a variable to write an algebraic expression that represents a real-world situation when a specific number is unknown.
• develop expressions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division from real-world problems.
• explain what the equality and inequality symbols mean and determine if a number sentence is true or false based on the given symbol.
This week we will continue our expressions unit and develop ideas of equivalent expressions and inequalities. Students will be completing notes, notebook activities, and Mathspace to practice these concepts.
We will have an assignment this week on equivalent ratios. This assignment will be available on MathSpace and will be due 12/18/17
“One-Step Equation Homework” Due 12/18/17
If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.
Students are able to complete additional practice on both MathSpace and IXL.
