__Common Core Standard__

8.EE.C.7: Solve linear equations in one variable.

____

__Student Objectives__

__I can define and identify real numbers.__

I can define infinite in my own words.

Given an equation, I can prove it has one solution, no solution, or infinite solutions.

__Students will match expressions and equations to corresponding word problems as well as solve several multi-step equations.__

Bellwork

Bellwork

__Lesson__(Special Solutions)

1. The teacher will go over the bellwork.

2. The class will go over the answers to the homework.

3. Smartboard graffiti: The teacher will write x+1=3 on the Smartboard and ask students to solve it. The teacher will write other one and two step equations on the Smartboard and ask students to solve them. The teacher will ask students to look at the problems and discuss what they have in common. If necessary, the teacher will direct students to consider how many answers/solutions each problem has (answer-one).

4. Smartboard graffiti: The teacher will ask students to come up and write an equation with one answer/solution on the Smartboard.

5. Smartboard graffiti: The teacher will write x+1=x+1 on the Smartboard and ask students to name a number that can take the place of x and make the statement true. Students will each be assigned a value for x and asked to prove it makes the equation true. The teacher will write 2x +3x -5=5x - 5 on the Smartboard and ask students to name a number that can take the place of x and make the statement true. Students will each be assigned a value for x and asked to prove it makes the equation true. Students will be asked what these two equations have in common that allows each of them to have an unlimited (infinite) number of solutions. (answer-equal quantities on both sides, ie. a true statement). The teacher will stress that we can do anything we want to an equation as long as it is done to both sides. The teacher will demonstrate how the variables drop out leaving the same numbers on both sides.

6. The teacher will write m-5=m+5 on the Smartboard. Students will be asked to solve for m. The teacher will ask how many solutions can be found

for this equation (answer-none)? The teacher will write 2m + 6 = 2m + 8 on the Smartboard. Students will solve for m. The teacher will ask how many solutions can be found for this equation (answer-none)? The teacher will ask students to discuss what is similar about these two equations. (answer-the variables drop out leaving unequal quantities on each side, ie. a false statement)

7. Scaffolded notes/Journal entry: definition of solution, infinite and real numbers, examples of equations with one solution, no solution, no solution

8. Guided practice-"Special Solutions" worksheet, evens, #1-6.

__Closing__

Students will complete a special solutions matching exit ticket.

__Homework__

-Study vocabulary terms and definitions on list 2. There will be a quiz on Monday, November 3.

-Tomorrow there will be a quiz over writing expressions and equations.

-Students will complete the "Special Solutions" worksheet, #1-6 odds, and #7-10 all.

Lesson

Lesson

1. The class will go over the bellwork.

2. The class will finish the scaffolded notes for equations with special solutions.

3. Students will circulate to 3 "stations" in the room. At each station, a large sheet of paper with the heading no solution, one solution, or infinite solutions will be posted. Each student will create and write an example of each type of equation. There will be a class discussion about the examples students generated.

(The following portion of the lesson was not completed on Wednesday and has been carried over.)
