Lesson Objectives

## Varying Objectives for

(Differentiated Instruction-content;
Process; Product; or Environment)

Statement of Purpose

A1.ASE.2
*

## Analyze the structure of binomials, trinomials, and other

polynomials in order to rewrite equivalent expressions.

Describe the lessons activities and content to provide a clear overview of the lesson.
This lesson is apart of the factoring polynomials section of Algebra one. There are many types of
polynomials; therefore, there are multiple ways to factor. One of the ways to factor is by
grouping. This is when a polynomial has 4 terms. This lesson will show how to factor
polynomials with four terms by the grouping method. The students will practice problems with
this method and will be able to recognize when to factor polynomials by grouping.
What will students be able to do at the conclusion of this lesson? Make sure that your
objective(s) are measurable.
The students will be able to factoring out polynomials with four terms by using grouping. They
will also be able to find the GCF and divide it out of polynomials.
How will you vary these objectives for students who do not understand the material?
I will vary the objective by re-teaching during independent practice to those students who do not
understand.
How will you vary these objectives for students who have already mastered the concept?
I will vary these objectives for students who have already mastered the concepts by always
having challenging math puzzles that relate to the concept for them to do for extra credit.
How will you vary these objectives for students who are presently learning English?
I will vary these objectives by translating the assignments in worksheet. I currently do not have
any ELLs.
Why is it important for the students to learn this content?
It is important for students to learn this standard because it will allow them to master more
challenging standards in the future.
What materials and supplies are needed to help your students achieve the stated
objectives? What will the teacher need? What will the students need? What other
resources are needed? Will you use resource speakers?

I will not use resource speakers.

Anticipatory Set

What will you do to motivate the students and get their attention? What is the hook
that will serve as a focus for the lessons activities?

## Part II: IMPLEMENTATION

Pre-assessment

Teacher Modeling or
Demonstration
Guided Practice
Checking for
Understanding

I will ask the students if they have ever factored polynomials by grouping. I will also ask them if
they remember how to factor out the GCF, which is an important skill because it is a part of
factoring my grouping as well.
What will you do to show students what is expected?
I will work out on the Star Board two example problems that the student will write in their
Foldables in order for them to use the examples to follow the steps while completing their own.
What will we do together as they learn how to succeed at the new task?
I will give the students numerous problems to work out on the dry erase board. I will be able to
determine who understands the concept and who is struggling as well. This will also allow me to
determine whether or not I can move on or teach again.
What questions will you ask to determine if students understand so far? What techniques
or strategies will be used to determine if students understand so far?
I will use the Find Someone Who Can activity where the students must find another student
who can solve the problem and have them sign the paper.
What will students do by themselves to show that they have internalized the knowledge?

Independent Practice
Closure

Assessment

## Students will complete a worksheet that covers how to factor polynomials

by grouping. Factoring by Grouping Worksheet
How will you conclude the lesson and relate it to future experiences? How will you wrap
up the lesson to reinforce concepts taught during the lesson?
I will wrap up the lesson by asking the students to tell me the steps and questions to ask when
factoring polynomials with four terms. They will have an exit ticket where they must answer a
problem.
What will students do to demonstrate what they have learned?
The students will have to complete their independent handout in order to demonstrate they have
learned the standard. This will be assessed and graded.

## (Give a description and attach

to lesson plan)
Extension Activities

What can students do at home or in the classroom to apply the knowledge or skills? How
could you use your colleagues or community agencies to improve student performance?

## The students should study their interactive notebook and

complete the independent practice if needed.

How will you use technology to assist students with learning the concepts? What
technology will you use to enhance the delivery and comprehension of your content?

Technology

## Connection Across the

Curriculum

I will use the technology of the Star Board and the wireless tablet so that I can write on the board from the
back of the classroom. All the students will be able to see the board at all times during instruction. I will
also use the technology of an educational video.
How will you connect this lesson with other content areas across the curriculum? Include the
content areas as well as the arts, PE and Health.
I will include word problems during guided practice that relate to science, math, and health.

## PART III: REFLECTION

Strengths

Weaknesses
Suggestions for
Improvement

Describe the strengths of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management.
The strengths of my instructional techniques, strategies, and classroom management were my planning and
worksheets. The foldable was also very convenient because it went right along with the Power Point.
Another strength was that the students had a lot of problems to work with and to practice the skill.
Describe the strengths of student engagement.
The students were very engaged. They wanted to do more and more practice problems as well as try
problems on their own.
Describe the weaknesses of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management.
Describe the weaknesses of student engagement.
The weakness of my instructional techniques, strategies, and classroom management include not having
enough time to complete the entire lesson.
What would you change when teaching this lesson again?
Even though this was my smallest class, I would try adding an activity where the students have to interact
with one another.
