Title: Penny Drop That Thang!
Description:
This lesson is designed to introduce and extend students' knowledge on slope and linear equations. Students will be able to differentiate finding the slope to creating a linear equation.
This is a College and CareerReady Standards showcase lesson plan.
Standard(s): [MA2015] AL1 (912) 23: Explain why the xcoordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.* [AREI11]
Subject: Mathematics (8  12)

Title: Solving MultiStep Equations
Description:
In this lesson, students will work cooperatively to solve multistep equations online. The program will allow them to solve the equations and then check their answers. Students lacking the needed skills to complete this assignment will be given an opportunity to work cooperatively in an interactive program with algebra tiles to solve twostep equations. The students will remain in their cooperative groups and complete the problems listed on Handout 1. They will also have an opportunity to present their solutions and the process they worked through to get the solution to the class.
Standard(s): [MA2015] AL1 (912) 17: Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters. [AREI3]

Title: Wild Water Adventure
Description:
Students will learn how a system of equations can be used to find the best use of information to make decisions in realworld situations.Students will work in groups of 3s or 4s to develop a system for the best buy on tickets at a water park. The lesson is also designed to help students develop a budget or a plan when their spending money is limited. Students will find that sometimes group prices or working as a team will help them save money.
Standard(s): [MA2015] AL1 (912) 20: Solve systems of linear equations exactly and approximately (e.g., with graphs), focusing on pairs of linear equations in two variables. [AREI6]

Title: It’s a Party! Solving Multistep Equations
Description:
Often students are confused about ‘where to start’ when solving a multistep equation. In this lesson the equation is labeled as a ‘party’. The 'host' is labeled (x) with remaining operations being labeled according to their relationship to the host (friends, family, acquaintances, etc...). Technology assignments are used as one method to assess student understanding.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

Title: Density
Description:
Density is the ratio of mass to volume. Density will be introduced to students by a demonstration of coke verses diet coke. The teacher will then solve density problems for the students on the board. The class will then complete a lab on the density of plastics. After lab the students will compare results. Each group will present a Powerpoint presentation of their results.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
Standard(s): [MA2015] GEO (912) 40: Apply concepts of density based on area and volume in modeling situations (e.g., persons per square mile, British Thermal Units (BTUs) per cubic foot).* [GMG2]
