Expanding Algebraic Expressions

Students learn how to expand algebraic expression from a set of brackets.  As learning progresses they find the sum and difference of two or more sets of brackets with positive and negative terms.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to expand a pair of brackets with a constant on the outside.
  • Most students should be able to expand two pairs of brackets and simplify the result.
  • Some students should be able to expand two pairs of brackets one with a negative on the outside.

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]
