Over the years I have learned that students just are so much more engaged when they use interactive notes! Therefore I created this guided notes packet for Chapter 1 of most NY 7th grade and 7th Acc/Advanced math classes - "The Language of Algebra".
These chapter notes follow along with the lessons in Glencoe - McGraw-Hill's 7th Grade Math Accelerated 2014 textbook.
The lessons are titles as follows:
Lesson 1: A Plan for Problem-Solving
Lesson 2: Words and Expressions
Lesson 3: Variables and Expressions
Lesson 4: Properties of Numbers
Lesson 5: Problem-Solving Strategies
Lesson 6: Ordered Pairs and Relations
Lesson 7: Words, Equations, Tables and Graphs
Depending on your classroom and the students who learn in it (and also your school's curriculum map!), the number of days needed per lesson may vary. In my classroom, I provided many more examples than were needed in a given lesson so that when studying or working on homework, the students may work on some examples not done in class.
You may choose to upload this document to a smartboard or a document camera to use this with your students. You have a lot of freedom with these guided notes!
