1 Hook/Attention Getter
I will begin the lesson by accessing Kahoot to administer a pre-test to students. This pre test determines their level of prior knowledge of PEMDAS and following the steps to solve equations.
Students will answer the questions on the pre-test using Kahoot.
2 Direct Instruction
- Begin the lesson by reviewing the acronyms for PEMDAS as the phrase"Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" and the actual abbreviations "Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication/Division (in order from left to right), Addition/Subtraction (in order from left to right)" reminding the students that the equation must be solved in this order to arrive at the correct answer.
- Work several problems on the board for students to review this skill, making sure to include problems of all skill levels from easy to more challenging.
3 Guided Practice
Students will utilize the Khan Academy website to practice equations using order of operations.
4 Independent Practice
Students will complete an assignment where they have to accurately complete 7 out of 10 problems.
