Lesson Plan Title:  Solving Equations 
Developed by:  Melissa Gackle 
Subject Area:  Algebra I 
Topic:  Solving onestep and multistep equations 
Grade Level:  912 
Time Frame:  4 days 
Lesson Summary:  Students will know properties for solving equations. Students will be able to problem solve by using equations. 
Prerequisites:  Students must understand variables, expressions, and equations. 
Standards:  912.A.2.1 Students are able to use algebraic properties to transform multistep, singlevariable, and first degree equations. 
Lesson Objectives:  Students will understand
that:
equations may be used to solve real world
problems.
solving equations may take more than one step.
Essential questions the students should be able to answer: What step do you do first when solving a multistep equations? How can you check to see if you have the correct answer? What do you do if the answer is not reasonable? 
Assessment:  Book problems (p.148149, 137
odd), (p.152153, 741 odd), and (p.159160,937odd)  VERBAL

Extra practice worksheets 31, 32, and 33 Algebra Jeopardy on teams with 5 categories. (Solving equations using addition, solving equations using subtraction, solving equations using multiplication, solving equations using division, and solving multistep equations.)  INTERPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE PROJECT Student is starting a business. They need to pick 5 products they want to manufacture. Create equations for the cost and profit of the products. Then, choose how much you want to profit in the first month, 6 months, and year. Determine how many of each product you will have to sell to get the desired profit. Review and Test

Procedural Activities:  Introductory activity where
student receives problems to work out. They will work them out any
way that they want to. This is to see how they work them out, not
using equations.  INTRAPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE AND
LOGICALMATHEMATICAL
Guide students in solving equations step by step on the board. Allow students to work together on solving equations. INTERPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE Work through equations with and without real world applications. Closing activity where students get the same problems that they worked out in the introductory activity. This time they must use equations to solve them. Compare answers to introductory activity
