Just in time for back-to-school: New distance learning resources are available on Wide Open School.
The high school Algebra offering from Mathalicious is a fantastic collection of real-world math lessons, each broken down into three sections; Plan, Teach, and Reflect. The Plan section has clear teacher instructions, while high-quality video clips hold students' attention. The heart of each lesson is in the Teach section, which includes a preview activity and a set of problems. In Reflect, users can post comments and share ideas. Not all of the Common Core Algebra standards are addressed, but three are covered well through these explorations of real-world math.
Have your students complete the preview activity with a partner. Ask them to write a "3-2-1 Summary" of the activity: 3 things they learned, 2 things they found most interesting, and 1 thing they still have a question about. Follow with a whole-class discussion for further exploration on the topic. Afterward, have students return to their partners to complete the lesson problems collaboratively.Continue reading Show less
Key Standards Supported
Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.
Reasoning With Equations And Inequalities
Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
Seeing Structure In Expressions
Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.
Derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems. For example, calculate mortgage payments.
