1 Anticipatory set
The teacher will set up a voice thread with the prompt of what are major factors that help you decide which job to take when given multiple job offers. The teacher will post the link to the Voice Thread in the class Schoology page. The teacher will demonstrate the three ways students can respond such as typing, video, or voice response.
The students will click on the link to open the Voice Thread page. The students will post their response and respond to their classmates posts.
2 Direct instruction and guided practice
The teacher will have posted in Schoology app the pdf that has the notes fill in page and sample problems. The students will open the link and then choose the option open in Notability. The students will save the document and the teacher will demonstrate how to write or type the information. The teacher will discuss one factor when comparing job offers is to compare the pay given. The pay may be given in many different ways such as by hour, weekly, monthly or annually to be able to compare rates the students need to be able to change the forms to comparable rates. The teacher will remind the students of how we found hourly rate before and that each pay period it changes depending on the number of hours worked. The teacher will go over what a salary job is and how the pay stays the same. The teacher will go over different paycheck periods such as weekly, semimonthly, biweekly, and monthly. The class will do sample problems together. The teacher will show the students how to highlight using Notability. They are to highlight the key information in the problems.
The students will open the note document in the Notability app. They will take notes either typing or writing the information that the teacher goes over. The will highlight the key information while solving the sample problems. They will check their answers with their partners.
The teacher will introduce the part of the final project they will work on today. The teacher will demonstrate how to use the JA Build Your Future app to find the salary of jobs of interest. The students will draw a paper that has either semimonthly, biweekly, monthly, or weekly pay periods. For the assessment, the students will have to record the salary and show what they will receive for the paycheck during the period.
The students will use the JA Build Your Future app to find three careers of interest and record their salary down. The students will record the salary for the pay period they received.

Reasoning With Equations And Inequalities
Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
Use the method of completing the square to transform any quadratic equation in x into an equation of the form (x – p)2 = q that has the same solutions. Derive the quadratic formula from this form.
Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for x2 = 49), taking square roots, completing the square, the quadratic formula and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation. Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as a ± bi for real numbers a and b.
Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.
