ALEX Lesson Plans Subject: Mathematics (8 - 12) 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 Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12) Title: Solving Multi-Step Equations Description: In this lesson, students will work cooperatively to solve multi-step 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 two-step 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.Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12) Title: The Art of Solving One and Two-Step Equations - A WebQuest Description: This lesson is on solving one and two-step equations. Students will watch interactive video clips that provide a step by step process to solving equations. Students will also visit interactive websites that provide games for solving equations.Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12) 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 real-world 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.   Subject: Mathematics (8 - 12) Title: It’s a Party! Solving Multi-step Equations Description: Often students are confused about ‘where to start’ when solving a multi-step 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.Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12), or Science (8 - 12) 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.
