Product Description
This 5-part lesson would be a great addition to any expressions unit. See a brief description of each part below:

Problem of the Day: At the beginning of the lesson, students will take a few minutes to answer the problem of the day. Students can write their responses in a notebook, on a loose leaf sheet of paper or on the papers provided. After a few minutes, have students check the work of another classmate, or they can check their own.

Notes: Together as a class, spend some time going over the rules to simplifying expressions with multiplication + division. Guided notes are helpful for all types of learners. Students don’t have to rush to write everything down, but they are still required to pay attention so information isn’t missed.

Magic Square Activity: Magic square activities are a fun way to practice a new concept. You will begin by having the students cut out the individual squares. On the square, or another sheet of paper, have students simplify the expressions. They will look for the answer on the edge of another square. They will then line up the problem and the answer. They will continue until they have successfully formed a 4x4 square. If I am using this as a class activity, I typically just have them show me their answer at the end. If they complete it as a homework assignment, I have them glue their square to a sheet of paper.

Practice Worksheet: Students will complete the practice worksheet on simplifying expressions. This worksheet can be given as an individual assignment or students could work with a partner or in a group.

Exit Slip: In the final minutes of the lesson, have student complete their exit slip. This can be completed on a worksheet, on a loose leaf sheet of paper or on the papers provided. This is a great way to assess the level of understanding for each student in the class.
