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. Algebraic Expressions Games & Activities
Algebra can be a lot of fun if you make the effort to engage students. A way to do that is to play games and involve students in activities. Here are some ideas to get you started.
3. Inequalities Lesson Plan
Easy to read and understand, and full of examples and simple steps, this lesson plan will help you teach your students how to solve inequalities in a snap. Guided and independent work samples included, as well as a fun follow-up game.
4. 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.
5. Math Drills for Algebra
Math drills are a great way to give your students consistent algebra practice that doesn't feel quite so repetitive. There are many options for math drills; check out some of these ideas.
