### Lesson Plan Algebra

1. 1. Jill Fleming Date/Period: Subject: Math Class: 10th grade Topic: Algebra 1, Expressions, Equations, Inequalities, Linear and Quadratic Time: Between 3 to 4 weeks based on students’ process within this topic Learning Objectives The student will demonstrate an understanding of algebra by solving linear equations with one variable. Also understanding expressions, equations, inequalities, linear and quadratic functions can be represented in multiple ways. Computer software and hardware, Presentation software, Webcam, Video equipment, personal device (i.e. cell phone, tablet), iPod touch or iPads. Resources/Materials Activities There are two activities for this assignment the first is to learn about algebra. The second will be to describe the contributions made by the Babylonians, Egyptians, Scipione del Ferro, René Descartes, Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi and Arthur Cayley to algebra. Description of class 30 students-18 females, 12 males all students in this class are African American and from middle to lower class families. There are three students with exceptionalities; however, the students have been mainstreamed into classes from a young age. The students learner styles is a combination of visual and auditory thus the selection of how student’s work with be presented. Procedures Analyze algebra problems to identify the given information, create a strategy for solving each problem. Apply strategies to solve routine and non-routine problems and identify connections between algebra and the real world. To prepare for this lesson I will introduce students to algebra by providing the origin of the subject, mathematical terms, formulas and equations.
2. 2. Students will then work together in groups of five members to create in a newspaper or magazine style format what they have learned in mathematical format to include the contributions of individuals that I mentioned previously. Technology inclusion Students will work in a group with a maximum of 5 members. This lesson is to begin with an introduction to lessons involving expressions, equations, inequalities, linear and quadratic algebra this should take at least one week.. Although this is a group assignment student are still responsible for their own portion of their work and feedback to me on what is working or where assistance is needed.
