AP Algebra 1

Monday December 5, 2016

Objective
(I will…)

I will solve systems of equations by elimination.

Student Activities

Students will collaborate on McDougal lesson 7.3. Students will use think pair share strategies to extend learning opportunities. Once they have completed their problems, groups will volunteer to write their work on the board and have students grade whether the work is completed correctly or incorrectly by using smiley faces or sad faces

Assess./Evaluations

During lessons the following will be used on a daily basis to assess the instruction being given:
Students will be given individual whiteboards and expo markers to work problems and flash the boards up towards the instructor to check for accuracy.
Thumbs up and down and sides ways will alert the teacher of who is understanding completely, somewhat, or not at all.
Standing up in chair to check for understanding. Students who can’t stand up are helped by the instructor or peers to assist them where needed so they can be successful and stand up when they’ve completed the problem.
(students with disabilities will be given a bold color sheet of paper to hold up to indicate they have completed the work assigned)
Shoulder check. Students will finish a problem and stand at the wall and wait for others to finish. They check each other’s work. IF a student has worked the problem incorrectly they student to their left will walk to a free area in the room and assist the student with where they made a mistake.
Quizzes will be administered weekly and Test biweekly.
Homework will be graded in class and gone over after grading them.
Quizzes and test will be graded and handed back the next day and gone over to correct the problems students have missed.
Plickers will be used to check for understanding.

IEP Modifications

Read aloud: short stories and word problems for clarification. Give the students a hard copy and a highlighter to highlight words they are not familiar with.
Monitor: ask students if they are familiar with the word expression. When they say they are not familiar I give the example that it means “math problem”
Strategy: Go back over the words highlight and give examples of an easier word that they link to the new term they are not familiar with.
Repetition: ask the student read the new word and associate with a word they have written above the highlighted word.
Notes: Students have their notes to refer back to and use on each lesson, quiz, and test.

ELL Modifications

Mountain Math Brain Work has printed version in Spanish and all ELL student have the option to both English and Spanish version.
Students will be monitored, given repetition with work Mountain Math on a daily basis. All work will be translated into a Spanish version using Google Translate.
Will use pair share in class and have English/Spanish speaking students paired with Spanish speakers to answer questions they have on the group work.
Aids have been provided in each 7^{th} grade mathematics class to assist the teacher with the verbal translation during class time when instruction is being given.

Reg. math 8th.

Monday, December 5, 2016

Objective
(I will…)

Students will understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.

Student Activities

Students will look for patterns and create representations from practice problems and examples from McDougal 11.4. They will use thinkpairshare strategies to extend learning opportunities. Once they have completed their problems, groups will be chosen to write their work on the board or on desks and have other students correct the problems. Students will use thumbs up, down or sideways to evaluate the work.

Assess./Evaluations

During lessons the following will be used on a daily basis to assess the instruction being given:
Students will be given expo markers to work problems on their desks for the instructor to check for accuracy. This will allow for the instructor and/or student colleagues to check for accuracy.
Students may be asked to stand when they have completed a problem in class. Students who aren’t able to stand will be given assistance or an accommodation so they can be successful when they have completed a specific problem. Students with physical disabilities will be given a bold color sheet of paper to hold up to indicate they have completed the work assigned.
Students may also show thumbs up, down and sideways to provide formative assessment allowing the teacher to know which students have grasped the concept and which may need remediation.
Shoulder check: Students will finish a problem and line up at the back wall shouldertoshoulder while others finish. I will check the first person’s work and, if correct, then they will check each other’s work in succession. If a student has worked the problem incorrectly he/she will return to a table with the student to his/her left to discover the mistake.
Quizzes will be administered weekly and a test will be given every two to three weeks.
Homework will be graded in class and reviewed as a class.
Quizzes and test will be graded and handed back the next school day. We will review the most commonly missed problems. Students needing more extensive remediation will be invited to attend tutoring before or after school.
Plickers will be used in class to check for understanding and provide instant feedback.

Students may also show thumbs up, down and sideways to provide formative assessment allowing the teacher to know which students have grasped the concept and which may need remediation.
Shoulder check: Students will finish a problem and line up at the back wall shouldertoshoulder while others finish. I will check the first person’s work and, if correct, then they will check each other’s work in succession. If a student has worked the problem incorrectly he/she will return to a table with the student to his/her left to discover the mistake.
Quizzes will be administered weekly and a test will be given every two to three weeks.
Homework will be graded in class and reviewed as a class.
Quizzes and test will be graded and handed back the next school day. We will review the most commonly missed problems. Students needing more extensive remediation will be invited to attend tutoring before or after school.
Plickers will be used in class to check for understanding and provide instant feedback.

IEP Modifications

Read aloud: short stories and word problems for clarification. Give the students a hard copy and ask them to highlight words with which they are not familiar.
Monitor: ask students if they are familiar with the word expression. If they are not familiar I will give them examples and synonyms that will facilitate understanding of the word or phrase.
Strategy: Review the highlighted words and give examples of simpler, easier words that are more familiar.
Repetition: ask the student to read the new word or phrase and associate with a word they have written above the highlighted word.
Notes: Students have their notes to refer back to and use on each lesson, quiz, and test.

ELL Modifications

Students will be monitored, given repetition with work Mountain Math or similar curriculum on a daily basis. All work will be translated into a Spanish version using Google Translate.
Will use pair share in class and have fluent English/Spanish speaking students paired with Spanish speakers to answer questions they have on the group work.
Aids have been provided for each 8th grade mathematics class to assist the teacher with the verbal translation during class time when instruction is being given.
