1. Solving One-Step Equations Lesson Plan
Solving one-step equations may sound simple, but for many students they're a challenge. Teach how words translate words into a math problem with clear steps and several examples. Finish up with an activity.
2. Graphing Linear Equations Lesson Plan
In this lesson, students will practice converting between the slope-intercept and standard forms of linear equations. Then, students will graph linear equations using two common procedures that each start with the standard form.
3. Solving Word Problems with Multiple Steps Lesson Plan
This lesson plan will help your students learn how to solve word problems with several steps. Students will watch a video lesson and work to solve word problems and justify their answers.
4. Negative Exponents Lesson Plan
Use this lesson plan to teach your students about negative exponents. Students will watch a video defining the term and showing how to write fractions and decimals as exponents. Plenty of guided and independent practice, along with activities and a quiz, make learning last.
5. Nonlinear Functions Lesson Plan
Teach your students about nonlinear functions with this helpful lesson plan. They will view a video lesson, take a related quiz, and take part in a fun activity that will reinforce concepts.
6. Solving Problems with Money Lesson Plan
Solving word problems presents a challenge for some students, but incorporating real-world applications often makes learning easier and fun. In this lesson, students will watch a video, answer discussion questions, complete an activity, and take a quiz.
7. Calculating Permutations Lesson Plan
Educate your students on how to calculate a permutation with this helpful lesson plan. They will watch a video lesson about permutations, participate in a hands-on activity, and take an accompanying quiz on permutations to reinforce concepts.
8. 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.
9. Polynomials Activities for High School
Learning about polynomials is a crucial part of algebra in high school. This lesson offers a series of activities that allow students to access different learning styles and strengths as they absorb these concepts.
10. Solving a Rational Equation Lesson Plan
This lesson will help students learn how to solve rational equations. They will watch a video lesson, measure their understanding with a short quiz, and work to evaluate, analyze, and solve rational equations.
11. Rational Expressions Activities
Teaching your students about rational expressions does not have to be dull or done using rote instruction! The activities in this lesson will help bring your math pedagogy to life.
12. Math Fair Project Ideas for 9th Grade
Math fairs are non-competitive opportunities for a student to solve problems that require mathematical thinking. The following are project ideas for a ninth-grade math fair.
