  • Activities/Tasks:
  1. Teacher takes Role as students pass out and fill out Info Sheets
  2. Teacher defines Algebra 2 – Compare/contrast with previous classes
  3. Whole-class instruction: Teacher reads/explains PROWL and reviews dress code using student planners and class policy as references. "What is Mr. Leeson's favorite letter?" ("O")
  4. Class (with teacher participating as well) plays the Live Multiple Choice game - moving to A,B,C,D to answer Icebreaker questions posted on Pro Board.
  5. Teacher Introduces Classroom procedures: seating assignments, turning in work, and reviewing HW, fire escape, ...

Jan 08 Introduction to Algebra 2 and Solving for x

  • Standards:
  • Learning Outcome(s):
  • Vocabulary:
  • Activities/Tasks:
  1. Whole-class instruction: Teacher reads/explains Class Policy, PROWL, and school rules. Review Classroom procedures: seating assignments, turning in work, and reviewing HW, group problems, etc.
  2. Whole-class instruction: Discuss/define Tier 2 terms that help introduce the course, in notes. List the "Order of Operations". Review how and WHY to solve for x.
  3. Cooperative: Each group is handed a list of problems that must be solved. To review Algebra 1, they should help each other so that each student can solve each type of problem in the future.
  • Formative/Summative Assessment: Teacher Asks Oral Questions throughout class, to gage student understanding and to determine pacing
