Caryn Loves Math  (TpT Seller) re: Solving Systems of Linear & Quadratic Equations Lesson Plan, Pt. II
Thanks. I will show this to my teaching partner and see if it what she wants for our final project. We have 4 teachers each teaching 1 to 2 classes of Algebra 2. The other teachers would only use the one page would you require me to purchase 4 licenses (that is IF everyone wants to use it.) Next Question, is this a word file so I can adjust it to fit our needs?

Hi again, the file is a pdf, but I am in the process of adding the word files to all of my products. I will add the Word file to this lesson when I get home from work today (about 4 p.m. EST). Thanks, Joe

Caryn Loves Math  (TpT Seller) re: Solving Systems of Linear & Quadratic Equations Lesson Plan, Pt. II
I am interested in ....Activity II: Modeling/Literacy Applying the Solution to a System of Quadratic and Linear Equations to a Real-World Situation from this packet. But before I purchase I need to make sure it is what I am looking for. Can you upload a more complete preview. I need to see the questions and worksheet to make sure it works. We are looking for an activity to use as a chapter project (instead of a test).

Hi Caryn, I have attached one of the examples to the preview. I hope that answers your questions. Best, Joe

Hi,

I work in nyc and I'm having difficulties teaching high school geometry (11th grade) to students with special needs. If you can provide me with with any assistance I would appreciate it.

Joe Fraioli  (TpT Seller)
Hi,

Many of my students have special needs as well. If you have a SmarrtBoard, I think that's a great tool to teach geometry since it's so visual. I try to color code different steps and record the steps and play them back on the board (using the recording tool). Some students like going up to the board to work out a problem.

If you don't have a SmartBoard, I try to limit my time at the board because my special needs students (as do yours, I'm sure) have shorter attention spans and require more individual attention. For that reason, I try to use more, shorter activtities so that students are always busy and can transition to the next activity, while those that need more time can continue with their current activity. For example, instead of say, a worksheet with 10-12 exercises, I split them up into worksheets with 3-4 exercises that are very similar, or share a common theme.

Some geometry topics scream for manipulatives. For example, whenever I do transformations, I always cut out the figures and have students physically move them around a coordinate plane to show how the transformation affects the figure.

I'm in Brooklyn, and I have a special ed teacher in my room for a few periods and she is very helpful working with the students individually, but some special ed teachers can be math-phobic and need a little "push" to help out. I know how frustrating it can be when you're in the class alone and there simply isn't enough time in the period to work with every student. It really helps having a co-teacher or push-in. Otherwise, an after-school tutoring session would be great for special needs students.

I hope that helps a little, but I get the feeling that you've probably already heard/used my suggestions. I haven't posted many geometry lessons on TpT because they take a while to type up and format, but I hope to post some freebies before June.

mlrodgers re: Writing the Equation of a Line from a Graph Lesson Plan
Good day! I cannot download your lesson plan. I keep getting this message: 504 Gateway Time-out. The thumbnails look great!

Joe Fraioli  (TpT Seller)
Hello mlrodgers, sorry to hear that you're having trouble downloading the file. My only advice would be to keep trying. At least 600 people have downloaded the lesson so far today and some left comments so I know it's available. It may be a connection or server problem. I hope that you're able to download. Joe

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an educator for 7+ years in the New York City Public School system. I teach middle and high school math and science. I have also taught journalism. I am currently teaching to at-risk students who are behind several grade levels in their math and science skills. Before I was a teacher, I was a writer and editor for two national textbook companies.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Not only do students differ in their math and science skill levels, but they also have different learning styles, so I try to incorporate different activities into my lessons so that no student feels neglected. I try to incorporate reading activities, hands-on learning, group activities and other strategies where appropriate.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In November 2013 I earned my National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) Certification in Early Adolescent Mathematics. Also in 2013, I was accepted as a Math for America (MfA) Master Teacher. I am a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State (AMTNYS), and the Society of American Baseball Researchers (SABR).
