This is the second unit of a curriculum is for an Algebra course
. This unit is Linear Equations and Inequalities. It introduces students to graphing and solving linear equations, linear inequalities, and systems of linear equations
This Unit includes:
* A student note-taking sheet which includes: daily objective, example problems, new concepts/vocab, a blank space for notes and examples.
* A teacher version of the note-taking sheet which includes: Definitions for new concepts/vocab, key points for the lesson, and common misunderstandings that students may have in that lesson. Many also include lesson suggestions.
* Unit assessment which includes: the assessment itself, a blank student answer sheet, and an answer key.
The objectives in this unit are:
2.1—SWBAT graph linear equations in slope intercept form.
2.2—SWBAT graph linear inequalities in slope intercept form.
2.E1—SWBAT graph non-linear inequalities.
2.E2—SWBAT write an equation in slope-intercept form to represent a graphed inequality.
2.3—SWBAT graph multiple linear inequalities and determine area of intersection.
2.4—SWBAT solve real-world problems with linear inequalities.
2.5—SWBAT solve systems of linear equations by graphing.
2.6—SWBAT solve systems of linear equations by substitution.
2.7—SWBAT solve systems of linear equations by elimination.
2.8—SWBAT verify correct solutions of systems of linear equations by plugging-in.
2.9—SWBAT determine whether a system of linear equations has zero, one, or infinite solutions by graphical methods.
2.10—SWBAT determine whether a system of linear equations has zero, one, or infinite solutions by algebraic methods.
2.11—SWBAT solve real-world problems with systems of linear equations.
Depending on your needs you could use the materials as-is, pick and choose specific lessons, or use it as a resource to design your own curriculum and lessons. If you anticipate needing the whole curriculum, you can purchase all the units together
, which also includes a final exam and some introductory materials.
When I used this with my students, I bound (saddle stitch) each unit of the student note templates, 3-whole punched them, and gave them to students to put in a binder. Each day students filled wrote in their examples and notes and thus made an individual "text book". They loved it.
NOTE: The download includes a PDF and Word Document version of the curriculum. However, the PDF is the primary product. The Word document is provided as a convenience in case you would like to make edits, but was automatically generated from the PDF document and has some formatting quirks. The original documents were created in Microsoft Publisher. If you purchased this document and would like any of the original Publisher files, feel free to contact me directly.
