Unit 2 Equations Day 2 Lesson 2.

2: Two-Step Equations 54 minutes

Objective: Students will learn how to solve two-step equations using the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division properties of equality.

Standards: Common Core CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7a : Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers). CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.1 Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-onone, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 8 topics, texts, and issues, building on others ideas and expressing their own clearly.

ISTE: NETS Teachers 2: Design and Develop Digital Age Learning Experiences and Assessments: A. Design or adapt relevant learning experiences that incorporate digital tools and resources to promote student learning and creativity. Students 6: Technology Operations and Concepts. A. Understand and use technology systems B. Select and use applications effectively Students 2: Communication & Collaboration A. Interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media Preparation:

Set up account for each student using the Holt McDougal digital textbook if they do not already have one. Set up NoteTaker HD app on each iPad if it is not already done. Make sure all journals are in students files. Write the word Equations on the board. This is their journal topic. Post the Two-Step Equations video from onto the class website. Post homework assignment on the class website. Sharpen Pencils. Make sure there are enough Stylis for the students.

Materials: iPad for each student, stylis for each student, pencils, paper, journals, video projector, individual Holt McDougal digital textbook accounts, NoteTaker HD app. Anticipatory Set: As students enter the room, have them get their journals out of their student files and begin writing on the journal topic listed on the board; Equations. They need to demonstrate the use of mathematical literacy by using math vocabulary and picture diagrams to explain their thoughts. Journals entries may include information such as definitions, ideas, examples, comparisons, where they believe the term came from, when the first heard the term, what it relates to, and so on. Ask for a few volunteers to share their journal entries with the class. Direct Instruction: Begin by asking students if they have any questions regarding last nights homework. Correct answers can be found in the teachers edition of the Holt McDougal digital textbook. When answering questions, use the ShowMe app on the iPad that is connected to the overhead projector before moving on to the next lesson. Collect homework Teacher and students need to sign into their Holt McDougal digital textbook accounts using their iPads. Teacher will use the overhead projector to share here screen with the entire class. Introduce students to the lesson on two-step equations by reviewing the highlighted vocabulary terms on page 79 of the digital textbook and reviewing the example below it. Next, teacher will bring up the class website using their iPad that is connected to overhead projector. Scroll down to the video that says Solving Two-Step Equations. Students will watch this as a class. Before starting video all students need to be signed into the NoteTaker HD app and have their stylis ready for taking notes. Notes should be titled Solving Two-Step Equations. Play Video: Each time a key concept is stated pause video so students can take notes. Review it if necessary and then continue on. Keep repeating this process until video is complete.

At end of video have students compare their notes to their partners notes and allow a few minutes for them to make any changes, additions, or corrections. Before moving on, allow for questions.

Guided Practice: Teacher will open up the ShowMe app which will be displayed through the overhead projector for all students to see. Students should still be signed into their digital textbook and follow along. Teacher and students will work together to solve and prove problems 4, 8, 12, 13, 28, and 46 on pages 82-83 of their digital textbook. Students will continue adding notes to their NoteTaker HD page for Two-Step Equations. Throughout guided practice the teacher will call on volunteers and ask the students for help on solving the equations in order to assess their level of understanding. Independent Practice: Students will go to page 84 in their digital textbook and complete the Interactive Quiz. Students are encouraged to use their notes from NoteTaker HD. Homework: When students are finished they can choose one of two things. They can work with their partner or independently to begin their homework. Homework will be problems 15-25 odd on page 82, and 27, 31, and 47 on page 83 of their digital textbook. They need to show all work, including proof that the solutions are true. Homework will be collected as they come into class tomorrow. Closure: Teacher will do a brief review of the key terms and concepts covered today by calling on students to explain them. For example Sam, can you please explain to the class what an Inverse Operation is? Before students leave class they need to email me a copy of their notes from NoteTaker HD and put their journals back into their student files.
