## Monday, December 8, 2014 - EE.5 - I can solve equations involving multiplication and division.

**Bell Work**

**Classwork**

**(1) Graded classwork returned. Bell Work from last week graded over completion of 23 problems.**

**"Solving Addition and Subtraction Equations"**

**graded for accuracy of solutions and organized work. Students were reminded to turn in their corrections today in case they weren't finished last Friday.**

**(2) Review how to solve equations involving multiplication and division. Remember to isolate the variable by using inverse operations. Complete**

**"Hexagonal Flowers."**

**Some classes and students were able to self-assess their work. Students who had 100% accuracy, turned their work in for Mrs. Heidesch to review. Students who did not have 100% received time in class to correct the problems missed.**

**Homework**- Finish correcting "Hexagonal Flowers" showing organized work as demonstrated in class. Get a jump start on tomorrow night's homework by completing "Solving Equations with Decimals." Organized work is not required. Complete the crossword puzzle to check your solutions.

## Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - EE.5 and 7 - I can solve real-world math problems by writing and solving equations using any of the four operations.

**Bell Work**

**Classwork**

1st and 2nd Period:(1) Corrections for "Hexagonal Flowers" were collected. For each equation, students must show the same operation and term being performed on both sides of the equation in order to isolate the variable. (2) Complete "Linear Word Problems" in small groups. Guided practice given for problem 1 which is posted below. Work for each problem should include: - an unknown value being represented by x.
- an equation where you have to balance the quantities (isolate the variable); try to write more than one equation if possible
- labels for all terms in the equation
- how to solve the equation (using inverse operations)
- summary for the solution (complete sentence; be descriptive)
You can use the facts given to solve for the unknown value, but how do you write an equation where you have to show the quantities being balanced?Use the fact family to rewrite the equation 3 other ways. Replace what you were solving for, 17, the weight Derek must lose, with x. Wrap up each problem by summarizing the solution:
Derek must lose 17 pounds to be able to enter the 145 lb wrestling weight class. |
3rd and 4th Period:(1) Self-assessed "Hexagonal Flowers." Time was given to correct problems missed. For each equation, students must show the same operation and term being performed on both sides of the equation in order to isolate the variable.
(2) Complete "Solving Equations with Decimals."
(3) Complete "Linear Word Problems." See notes from 1st and 2nd period to the left.
3rd and 4th Period Homework - Finish "Hexagonal Flowers" and "Solving Equations with Decimals." |

**1st and 2nd Period Homework**- Finish "Linear Word Problems."

**Classwork**

1st and 2nd Period(1) 1st Period reviewed the Reading and Writing Algebraic Expressions Quiz that was returned this past Monday. Come to tutoring to retake this quiz. (2) Complete "Set it up" task.
(3) Review possible equations and solutions to "Linear Word Problems."
(4) Begin Holt sets of writing equations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Homework - Catch up on corrections for "Solving Addition and Subtraction Equations," "Hexagonal Flowers," and "Solving Equations with Decimals." No new homework. |
3rd and 4th Period(1) Reading and Writing Algebraic Expressions Quiz was returned and reviewed. Come to tutoring to retake this quiz. (2) Questions answered over "Solving Equations with Decimals." (3) Began "Linear Word Problems." Create equations that must be balanced to solve for the unknown value. You can start by solving the problem using facts given. The answer is the variable. Use the inverse operation of what was used to solve the problem to create an equation that must be balanced. Problem 1 - How much weight must Derek lose to enter the 145 lb weight class in wrestling?Label each term in the equation. Ask yourself if the problem you have created makes sense.
Use the fact family for 162 - 145 = 17 to create other equations for this problem.
Use a variable to represent the unknown value you were solving for in the problem. The last three equations must be balanced to solve for "x."
Notice that all equations can be used to solve for x, the amount of weight Derek wants to lose in order to qualify for the 145 pound wrestling weight class.
Homework - Catch up on corrections for "Solving Addition and Subtraction Equations," "Hexagonal Flowers," and "Solving Equations with Decimals." No new homework, but you can work ahead with "Linear Word Problems." |

## Thursday, December 11, 2014 - EE.5 and 7 - I can solve real-world math problems by writing and solving equations using any of the four operations.

**Bell Work - Start on homework. Write an equation that must be balanced (inverse operations must be used).**

**Classwork**

(1) Complete Holt sets and self-assess in group: writing equations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Use the inverse operation of the operation used to solve for the unknown value to write an equation that must be balanced.
