```									                                  Math 6-8 Lesson Plan (Aligned to CCSSM)
Course: Math           CCSS Standard Number(s): 6.EE. 2a & 6.EE. 6                     Day: 1-2 days

Unit # and Title: Writing and Translating Expressions                            Block(s)/Period(s): 1 2 3 4 5 6

Unit Essential Question(s):                 How are variables used in mathematics?
Why are variable expressions important to learn?
How can generating equivalent expressions help us solve problems?
Learning Target(s)                          I can translate a verbal description into an algebraic expression.
“I can statements”
I can use variables to write an algebraic expression that represents a real-
world situation when a specific number is unknown.

I can use a variable to write an expression that represents a consistent
relationship in a particular pattern (function table).
Essential Vocabulary                        Expression, Sum, Term, Product, Factor, Coefficient, Difference, Quotient, Simplify, Variable,
Constant, Algebra

8 Mathematical Practices:
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.                    5.   Use appropriate tools strategically.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.                                    6.   Attend to precision.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.         7.   Look for and make use of structure.
4. Model with mathematics.                                                  8.   Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Activating Strategy                    Begin with Shives’ power point about words that describe operations. Teacher will lead
(Opening Activity)                     discussion on the various ways that operations can be written.
Cognitive Teaching Strategies              Me/We: Teacher will then continue with the power point, leading into how to write algebraic
expressions (all 4 examples.)
Me/We/Few/You
Few: In small groups, students will work together to complete part 2 Example on page 64-65.
(TIP-Teacher input                    Groups will discuss their answers. Students will then continue to work together to solve Try

Summarizing Strategy                    Say Something: Students will verbally summarize the lesson.
(Closing Activity)
Assessment/Homework                     Students will finish page 66 for homework.
