This lesson includes a warm up (true and false equations), a worksheet with model problems and try these examples involving modeling with algebraic expressions.
Also included is a station activity. There are three stations that students can use to practice their newly learned concepts.
Station 1 - Interpreting Algebraic Expressions
Station 2 - Vocabulary
Station 3 - Writing Algebraic Expressions
There is an exit card included and a SmartNotebook file as well.
This lesson is designed for a double period. If you only have a single period with your students, I suggest that you complete the warm up, the worksheet with modeling algebraic expressions and the exit card. The station activity can then be used the next day.
