Standard(s) Taught

Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.

Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
a. solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x ÷ q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers.
b. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• write a simple inequality to represent the constraints or conditions of numerical values in a real-world or mathematical problem.
• explain what the solution set of an inequality represents.
• show the solution set of an inequality by graphing it on a number line. • recognize that inequalities have infinitely many solutions when the values of x come from a set of rational numbers.

• compare algebraic solutions to arithmetic solutions
• construct and solve two step linear equations from real-world problems.
• explain the steps used in solving the equation
• identify the sequence of operations used to solve a problem.
• construct and solve two step linear inequalities from real-world problems
• explain how the solution set relates to the problem
• explain when and why it is necessary to change an inequality symbol.
• explain when/why an open or closed dot is used on a number line.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   Z9, AA4, AA5, BB2, BB7

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) None 

Additional Resources

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
