This is an 8-week unit of instruction for an Algebra I course that covers all the generally required material for the topics of graphing linear equations, solving systems of linear equations, simple linear regression, and applying systems of linear equations to real-life situations. The unit is constructed using a Project-Based Learning approach, where the students work collaboratively to run a class business during the 8 weeks. As they move through the various stages of planning and executing the business, they learn various concepts related to linear equations and how they directly apply to predicting demand or cost/revenue information. Finally, the project incoporates technology education by having the students use Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint to report and analyze the sales results of their business.
Lessons plans and curricula for two 4 hour sessions introducing conditional tables, explanatory/response variables, percentages/ratios, a new way of thinking and TinkerPlots. This week sets the stages for the rest of the semester. The focus is on student-centered learning through data exploration, opening one's mind to alternate ways of learning and on building community.
A Collection of teaching and learning materials for the KS3 Maths Curriculum looking at Algebra.
These include Smart Whiteboard material, which have also been converted to Powerpoint, Word documents and Excel Spreadsheets
This animated PowerPoint file is intended to demonstrate the basics of how to solve simple one step Algebra equations that involve only addition or subtraction. The teacher may wish to "click through" the presentation while explaining the process step by step. The animatation may be displayed on a television or projection screen in the classroom.
