Product Description
*Update* 10/5/13
I added an "I Have Who Has" activity because my one section this year needed more practice with Combining Like Terms. The activity has 21 cards, and answer sheet for students, and directions on how to do the activity.

The skills covered in this outcome are:

• Combine Like Terms
• Solve One-Step Equations


Common Core:
A-REI.3 Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

Keystone (PA):
A1., solve, and/or apply a linear equation (including problem situations).
A1. Use and/or identify an algebraic property to justify any step in an equation-solving process.
A1. Interpret solutions to problems in the context of the problem situation.

The outcome is delivered in three lessons. Each lesson may include the following features:

• PowerPoint presentation
• Notes Guide for students
• Each Notes Guide comes in two versions.
o The first version is the “regular” one.
o The second version has a QR code that leads the students to a pencast that I created. The students can listen and watch the pencast to work ahead, as a review, or to get any notes they missed while absent.

The pencasts are a “video” of my notes and instruction. There are various ways that you could use the pencasts.

You and the students can watch and listen to the pencasts together while filling in the accompanying notes guide.

You can post the pencasts to a class website for your students to work ahead before you begin the lesson, or to listen to after the lesson in the case they need to hear another time, or for students who were absent from class.

These pencasts are great for days when you aren’t in you classroom and have a substitute teacher.

Additional Items:

• A timeline for how I taught this outcome.
• A lesson that will have your students playing piano on a virtual keyboard
• Partner Work
• Making Thinking Visible with Posters
• Color By Number Review
• Two Versions of the Assessment
• Two Versions of High Performance Questions
• Pencasts for each lesson

This Outcome was developed with Standards-Based Grading (SBG) in mind, but it can also be used for traditional grading systems.
