Aim / Teaching Point / Lesson Potential Student Misconceptions


Objective
How can we use key words to  Students might confuse the order of the subtrahend
translate algebraic expressions, and the minuend when presented with the term “x
equations and inequalities? less than y”. Writing the
expression/equation/inequality one step at a time.
 Students have difficulty relating “at least” or “at
most”. Substitute with an everyday life example with
which they can relate. “You have to be at least 17 to
drive a car. Can you drive at 17? Can you drive when
you’re more than 17? Can you drive when you’re less
than 17?”

Warm Up: When students enter the room they will see a board
of post it notes with different “Math Code Words”
Add Subtract
printed on them. They will be asked to go pick a post-it + -
from the board and place it in the correct box on a
chart. Boxes are labeled with the four operations and Multiply Divide
equation and inequality. Boxes will also be labeled with × ÷
the corresponding symbols. Students will be
challenged to talk to their group to determine where Equation Inequality

Teaching / Modeling Questioning
1. I will model an inequality for the students. “Five Let’s figure out what “at least” really
plus triple a number is at least forty-three.” 3n + 5 ≥ means. If you have to be at least 43
43 inches to ride the Bizarro coaster at
2. Students will engage in guided group practice for Great Adventure.
the following problem:  Can you be = to 43 inches?
“Bob is four years younger than double  Can you be less than 43
his sister’s age (a). If Bob is 16, how old inches?
is his sister?”  Can you be more than 43
With their groups they will be asked to: inches?
 Underline the key words.
 Match each word with a sign/symbol.
 Use the numbers/variables/signs/symbols to
write equations.
Active Engagement & Link
What will Active Engagement involve? What will the
students e doing, and how will they do it?
What Link will you make between what the students
have done and what they will do in the work time?
Work Time Work Time Grouping & Management
Each student will get a task card for them to work on Work Time / Conference groupings (if
with the help of their group. There are three levels of applicable) are:
cards which correspond to the three levels of functioning
of the students in the room. Homogeneous

Low level Groups
Skill: How to match words with operations when you have non-traditional key words.
Strategy: Equate to real life. Substitute a question (if you’re younger than me, is your age more

or less than mine?)

Mid Level Groups


Skill: Finding the correct order for the minuend and the subtrahend as well as other “flip-
flopped” operations.
Strategy: Write it separately after each phrase. One bite at a time.

High Level Groups


Skill: Expressing the distributive property in inequalities.
Strategy: Look for the words “sum”, “product”, “quotient”, “difference”. Try to solve it out.
