Lesson Planet

#### Sidewalk Patterns

Sidewalk patterns ... it's definitely not foursquare! Learners investigate patterns in sidewalk blocks, write an expression to represent the pattern, and then solve problems using the expressions.

Lesson Planet

#### Patchwork

Sew up learning on writing rules for patterns with an assessment task that has pupils investigate the number of triangles needed for cushions of different sizes. They then use the data to generate a rule for a cushion of any size.

Lesson Planet

#### Sidewalk Stones

One block, two blocks, white blocks, gray blocks. In the high school assessment task, learners investigate patterns of sidewalk stones to develop a quadratic expression for each colored block. Young mathematicians then use the expression...

Lesson Planet

#### Table Tiling

How many total tiles does it take to tile a table top? Learners apply geometric concepts to determine the number of tiles needed for a specific square table top, and then use the result to create expressions for the number of tiles...

Lesson Planet

#### Problem Solving

School subjects connect when your young scholars use math to edit English. Math allows you to convert an entire paragraph into a simple equation or inequality. Examples encourage learners to write expressions, equations, and inequalities...

Lesson Planet

#### Analyze and Solve Linear Equations

Solve any issues you have with solving linear equations. Learners solve linear equations in one variable, starting with two-step equations, in the first chapter of a 10-part eighth-grade workbook series. They then progress to equations...

Lesson Planet

#### Interpreting Parts of Expressions

Express yourself! An engaging lesson includes a variety of activities that introduce expressions. Learners use everyday word expressions to convert to mathematical expressions before applying scoring options in football to write...

Lesson Planet

#### Creating Linear Inequalities in One Variable

Just when a young mathematician starts to feel comfortable turning word problems into linear equations, shake things up and throw inequalities in the mix. This excellent, instructive presentation takes the steps for solving an equality...

Lesson Planet

#### Deciphering Word Problems in Order to Write Equations

Help young mathematicians crack the code of word problems with this three-lesson series on problem solving. Walking students step-by-step through the process of identifying key information, creating algebraic equations, and finally...

Lesson Planet

#### Practice: Word Problems

Congratulations, you've just hit the word problem jackpot! Covering an incredible range of topics from integers and fractions, to percents, geometry, and much more, this collection of worksheets will keep young mathematicians busy...

Lesson Planet

#### Variable and Verbal Expressions

Your learners will practice their math translations with this worksheet that focuses on algebraic expressions. See if they can go from sentence form to numerical and back again using the different operations and exponents.

Lesson Planet

#### Kitchen Floor Tiles

An interesting way to look at the kitchen floor is to count the number of tiles in the border. Fred starts with four white floor tiles and writes an expression for the number of tiles needed for the colored border. Algebra learners are...

Lesson Planet

#### Delivery Trucks

Algebra learners are to make sense of two different-sized sand trucks and the number of trips each truck makes. The resource lists four different expressions based on the size of each truck and the number of deliveries the trucks make....

Lesson Planet

#### An Integer Identity

Challenge algebra learners to use the difference of cubes to solve this problem. Once your charges have taken out the factor (a - b), combined the like terms and set them equal to zero, the problem becomes a factorable quadratic...

Lesson Planet

#### Gotham City Taxis

Taxi! Have your travelers figure out how far they can go in a taxi for $10.00. They must account for the mileage rate and tip in their calculation. They can set up a table or make an equation to solve for the exact mileage they can...
