1. Factoring Lesson Plan
Teach your students the process of factoring in algebra with this lesson plan. Students will watch a video lesson explaining factoring in a fun way, practicing alongside the video. Discussion questions and cooperative experiences keep learning active so concepts will stick around after the lesson is over.
2. What is Factoring in Algebra? - Definition & Example
Factoring with ordinary numbers involves knowing that 6 is the product of 2 and 3. But what about factoring in algebra? In this lesson, we'll learn the essential elements of algebra factoring.
3. Factoring Activities for High School Math
Deeply understanding how factoring works and why it matters is an important part of algebraic development. This lesson offers activities that make factoring meaningful on the high school level.
4. Factoring Integers Activities
If your students know how to factor integers, they will be better prepared to work with fractions as well as complex multiplication and division. This lesson offers activities that help with factoring.
5. Factor Theorem Games & Activities
Numbers and letters don't mix, unless of course you're talking about algebra! Use the games and activities in this lesson to help make learning about the factor theorem more exciting.
6. Least Common Multiple Activities & Games
If your class is studying fractions, it's important for them to learn how to find the least common multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers. Use these games and activities to help students learn how to calculate the least common multiple.
7. Exponential Notation Lesson Plan for Middle School
This lesson will help your students understand how to use exponential notation. Students will watch a video lesson, participate in related activities/games, and take a quiz over what they have learned.
8. Greatest Common Divisor Lesson Plan
This lesson will help your students understand how to use prime factorization and Euclid's algorithm to determine the greatest common divisor. Students will watch a video lesson, participate in group activities, and take a quiz.
9. Surds Lesson Plan
Teachers, this lesson plan reviews a type of square root called surds. Students will read a lesson, practice calculating surds in a variety of formats and participate in an engaging activity to demonstrate learning.
