  • Refer to File Transfer for Scantron Score information
  • or the ‘unknown’ was originally referred to as ‘thing’ or ‘object’ of couple of derivatives of translation you end with a shortened version ‘x’. Also noted that the Greek word ‘xenos’ is the word for unknown or stranger also shortened to x.
  • Checkor X if you would like me to work through or skip the next three slides. You can use these slides as a starting point for your direct instruction and family support.
  • One variable (kind) = one dimension
  • Open or ClosedLeft or Right
  • Point out inequalities have more than one solution Call out open dot on graph
  • You can review this slide on your own time, however it explains the math behind ‘Flipping the Sign’
  • Error Analysis
  • Solve or write the inequality

Ms Math Summit Day 2 V4 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. MS Math SummitDecember 2009
  • 2. Math Challenge
  • 3. Scantron Reflection
    On the whiteboard: share your thoughts about taking the Scantron Performance Series Math assessment
  • 4. Personal Needs Reflection
    Did you come to any conclusion about your own personal development needs in Mathematics?
    List your thoughts in the chat window.
  • 5. Scantron Data
  • 6. Math is a Journey
    • Build your Toolbox
    • 7. Connect what you like
    • 8. Connect what you know
    • 9. Embrace how you learn
    • 10. Practice
    • 11. Share
  • Rules of the Road
    • Stay on the Road
    (don’t create your own path or make up math as you go)
    • Obey the Law (don’t break any math rules)
    • 12. Arrive on Time (leave early if you take the long way)
    • 13. Travel Comfortable
    (use the tools you’re comfortable and confident)
    • Check Your Location
    (check your work – is your answer reasonable and accurate? Did you answer the question?)
  • 14. Building Your Toolbox
    • Your math toolbox includes the tools, resources, formulas, rules, strategies and tricks, you learn and collect, during your journey.
  • 15. Lesson Objective
    Solve and Graph single variable equations and inequalities
    Toolbox Vocabulary: Toolbox Rules:
    Equation/Inequality Addition Property of Equality
    Equivalent Equations Multiplication Property of Equality
    Transformations Reciprocal
    Simplify Product Rules
    Replacement Set
    Reverse or ‘flip’ inequality signs
    Open Dot or Closed Dot
  • 16. Getting Started
    Why X?
  • 17. Solving Equations – the same but different
    Which tool do you grab from your toolbox?
    • Do you guess and check?
    • 18. Do you use Transformations of Addition and Subtraction to isolate the fraction?
    • 19. Do you convert your fraction to a decimal?
    • 20. Do you use Transformations of Multiplication and Division to remove the fraction?
    • 21. Do you graph or use a table of values?
    From this:
    To this:
  • 22. Solving Equations – Mel’s Route
    • Given
    • 23. Transformation by Multiplication
    • 24. Simplify
    • 25. Transformation by Subtraction
    • 26. Simplify
    • 27. Transformation by Multiplication
    • 28. Solution
    Is the equation true when
    x = – 14?
  • 29. Solving Equations – Mel’s Route Graphed
    Only one solution satisfies this equation.
    Is the equation true when
    x = – 14?
  • 30. Solving Equations – Checking Mel’s Route
    Is the equation true when x = – 14?
    • Given
    • 31. Substitute (replace) x with – 14
    • 32. Divide with Product Rule
    • 33. Simplify with Product Rule
    • 34. Simplify by addition
    • 35. Solution
    Is the equation true when x = –14? YES 
  • 36. No Really! Inequalities - the same but different
    From this:
    What is the same?
    What is different?
    How will the solution change?
    What might trip us up?
    To this:
  • 37. Solving Inequalities – Mel’s Route
    • Given
    • 38. Transformation by Multiplication
    • 39. Simplify
    • 40. Transformation by Subtraction
    • 41. Simplify
    • 42. Transformation by Multiplication – flip the sign
    • 43. Solution
    Is the inequality true when
    x < – 14?
  • 44. Solving Inequalities – Mel’s Route Graphed
    Is the inequality true when
    x < –14? Are their one, none or many solutions? Is –14 included in the solution?
  • 45. Solving Inequalities – Checking Mel’s Route
    We already know –14 is not included, so now choose an easy number left of –14 and substitute (replace) and solve.
    By selecting –20 and solving, we learn numbers left or smaller than –14 are true solutions of this inequality.
    Many solutions satisfy this inequality. Values less than but NOT including -14 are all solutions.
  • 46. Why Flip the Sign?
    This example requires Transformation of Multiplication and Division. When working with inequalities, and using this transformation we’re instructed to ‘Flip the Sign’. Here’s the math behind the request:
    This shows when an inequality is multiplied by –1, the inequality is reversed.
    is the same as:

  • 48. Now What’s Wrong?
    Look at the problems below. Indicate if the problem is algebraically correct, explain your answer.
    Look at the problems below. Select points on number line to check the solution and accuracy of the graph. Explain your findings.
