Daily Lesson Plan Form


Grade Level: 11th and 12th

Campus/District: Date: October 28, 2013 Caddo Mills High School Overall Goal of Lesson: The purpose of this lesson is to assess the students over Cramers Rule, finding inverses, and using inverses to solve systems of equations. Also, we will be playing Matrix Bingo as a test review. Instructional Objectives: Students will be able to perform matrix operations, determine dimensions of matrices, find inverses of matrices, and solve systems of equations using Cramers Rule and inverses. Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills (TEKS) & ELPS: (typed out completely) (2A.1) The student uses properties and attributes of functions and applies functions to problem situations. (B) collect and organize data, make and interpret scatter plots, fit the graph of a function to the data, interpret the results, and proceed to model, predict, and make decisions and critical judgments. (2A.3) The student formulates systems of equations and inequalities from problem situations, uses a variety of methods to solve them, and analyzes the solutions in terms of the situations. (A) analyze situations and formulate systems of equations in two or more unknowns or inequalities in two unknowns to solve problems. (B) use algebraic methods, graphs, tables, or matrices, to solve systems of equations or inequalities. Key Vocabulary: Matrix, Element, Row, Column, Equal Matrices, Adding Matrices, Subtracting Matrices, Scalar, Distribute, Multiplying Matrices, Inverse Matrices, Determinants, Identity Matrix, Cramers Rule, System of Equations

Higher Order Questions: When adding and subtracting matrices, what is special about the dimensions? When multiplying matrices, what is special about the dimensions? What are the dimensions of the answer matrix when multiplying? How do you determine if two matrices are inverses? What are ways that we have used to solve systems of equations? What is the determinant of a matrix if it does not have an inverse? What are the elements that make up an identity matrix? Student Activities: (Keep in mind the following: Scaffolding, Independent or Cooperative activities, Groupings, Reading,
Writing, Listening, Hands-On/Minds-On, Connections to previous knowledge, etc)

Grading Homework, Completing a Quiz with a Calculator part and Non-Calculator part, Pairing in Groups of two, Playing Matrix Bingo as Test Review in the groups of two Modifications/ELL Strategies Anticipatory Activity for Lesson: The activities for this A modification would be to shorten the lesson is taking a quiz and then playing matrix bingo as a length of the quiz for students who need test review game. modifications. For an ELL, provide the student with definition translations in their

first language.

Time Allotted 5 min.

Teacher Input/Lesson Activity: Take attendance. Grade homework from night before. Make sure there are no questions from homework. Have students clear off desk except for pencil and coversheet. Independent Practice: Students will take a quiz. There will be a calculator part and a noncalculator part. Guided Practice: Pass out Bingo Cards and beans (game pieces) to groups. Play the game of Matrix Bingo as a review for test.

25 min

Lesson Closure: Pass out the test review for them to work on as homework. Have a quick closure review by asking questions. Have students pass up bingo cards and game pieces and 5 min put away calculators. Assessment Methods/Strategies: Students will take a quiz and play matrix bingo as assessment methods. Strategies used will be group work. There will be student-teacher interactions, as well as student-student interactions. Resources (supplies, equipment, software, etc.): ActivInspire, Promethean Board, Graphing Calculator, Bingo Cards, beans (game pieces)

Reflection: The students will first take a quiz during this lesson and then they are able to play a game as a test review. This will be the first time that students have been able to work in groups. The students may not know how to react to this and may take advantage of the situation to talk. The students will most likely use this situation to learn and play the game though so they will be able to have more activities like this in the future.
