Grade Level Indicators (Grade 8): Patterns, Functions and Algebra (Use Algebraic Representations) Patterns, Functions and Algebra (Use Algebraic Representations)

9. Solve linear equations and inequalities graphically, symbolically and using technology. 10. Solve 2by 2 systems of linear equations graphically and by simple substitution.

NCTM Content Standards and Process Standards Alignment NCTM Content Standards: Algebra (9-12) -Understand and perform transformations such as arithmetically combining, composing, and inverting commonly used functions, using technology to perform such operations on more complicated symbolic expressions. -Write equivalent forms of equations and solve them with fluency-mentally or with paper and pencil in simple cases and using technology in all cases. NCTM Process Standards: Problem Solving: -Solve problems that arise in mathematics and in other contexts. -Apply and adapt a variety of appropriate strategies to solve problems. Connections: -Recognize and use connections among mathematical ideas. -Understand how mathematical ideas interconnect and build on one another to produce a coherent whole. Materials, Technology, and Resources: Substitution Method Worksheet for the game, and balloon worksheets (place for group’s team name with 6 balloons on each paper). Need the Antelope homework worksheet. Smart-board used for notes on the substitution method.

Differentiation / Accommodations I will place any ELL students in groups where students will help her explain her ideas on paper. All materials will be made available to students with disabilities. Special-ed students will receive more instruction from the teacher. The teacher will take more time to explain the substitution method to these students if needed. Homework Options and Home Connections All students are given the antelope worksheet to complete for homework. References: This lesson comes from a teacher’s website for algebra 1 lessons.

3) 5x – 2y = 3 y = 2x

4) 2y + x = -15 x = 3y

5) 4x + 7y = 19 y=x+9

6) y = 6x + 11 2y – 4x = 14

7) 2x – 8y = 6 y = -7 – x

8) x = 2y – 1 3x – 2y = -3

9) x + y = 3 3y + x = 5

10) 2x – 3y = -4 x + 3y = 7
