•PowerPoint presentation lesson: 16 slides
This lesson covers writing equations in one variable to solve real-world problems. The equations the students will be asked to write and solve range in difficulty from one-step, multi-step, and variables on both sides. Emphasis is placed on identifying which values from the problem take a variable, which don’t, and which represent totals. A wide variety of contexts is utilized.
• Filled-in PowerPoint presentation: 16 slides
This version of the PowerPoint lesson includes the work, answers, and explanations that the students would have heard and seen during the lesson. This is a great resource to provide to students who were absent on the day of the lesson and to students who need accommodations or modifications.
• Guided notes: 2 pages
This PDF document directly follows the PowerPoint notes for this lesson. These are great for students who need accommodations or modifications. Or, provide these for all students to increase the speed of the lesson and to allow students to spend less time copying and more time participating in the lesson.
A printable version of the warm-up from the notes is also included, including an answer key. There are four warm-ups per page.
• Exit Ticket
A short, two-question “exit ticket,” is included, and the answer key is provided. These questions mirror the types of questions that students saw in the notes and can be an efficient way to gauge how well students understood the lesson. Additionally, the back side of the exit ticket asks students to rank how they feel about the concepts taught from 1-4. There are four exit tickets per page.
• Stations Scavenger Hunt Activity
A fun way for students to practice the concept taught in the lesson. This activity includes a worksheet for students to show their work on, as well as 8 problems to be solved by your students. The problems can be displayed in two different ways: either as posters hung around your classroom, or as folded tents to be placed on desks. This activity is self-checking because the answer to each problem leads students to the next problem. An answer key is provided.
• Worksheet: 7 problems
This worksheet presents 7 word problems that range in difficulty and context, similar to the types of problems students were introduced to in the notes. An answer key is provided.
• Quiz: 4 problems
This half-sheet quiz asks students to solve the same types of problems they practiced in the notes and on the worksheet. This type of quiz is great for quick, formative feedback between teacher and student. An answer key is provided. Also included are two other versions of the same quiz that can be handed back to the student with their graded quiz. The first asks students to describe what mistakes they made on their first attempt on the quiz. The second asks students to provide the correct work for each problem they made a mistake on.
