I created this anticipation guide to use as both an activating strategy and as a summary tool. I will be using it this week with my low level algebra students. I have tenth graders that are taking their second year of algebra. Last year I went right into solving equations, but I decided that they needed to review the rules for integer arithmetic before we begin. This is a one page document that is designed for reproduction. I ask students to evaluate 19 arithmetic statements and decide if each is true or false. They do this before and after the lesson and have to explain the reason for any changes in their answers. This helps me satisfy the writing in mathematics requirement at my school.
