Lesson Plans and Creative Lessons for any Integrated Algebra Course

Students are put into groups and each group is given one card from the sheet attached. Each card contains a different clue to the number the students are investigating. Groups are allowed to read their cards out loud, but they may not show their cards to any other group. By talking to all of the other groups, each student will be able to find the mystery number.

In this assignment you will study what happens to the solution of a system of two equations in two unknowns when one of the coefficients in the system is changed. The calculations are highly repetitive and you might want to consider creating a program for the TI 83 or using Excel to solve the systems.

This is a version of the classic board game BINGO. But instead of simply reading out the numbers, the caller gives a math clue to a number that appears on the BINGO board. This is a great way to review a wide array of algebra topics, from percents, to mixture problems, to solving equations.

Students are given a worksheet to build skills that will help with solving equations and systems of equations. This sheet involves no numbers, just symbols, so that students are not distracted by the nomenclature of algebraic expressions, and can focus on building equation solving intuition. The columns of problems get increasingly more challenging as they go on. It is suggested that the students work on the more difficult problems in pairs or small groups.

This problem presents students with a scenario involving admission to an amusement park. Students choose between four different admission rates, and then must justify why they selected the rate that they did.

A fun little puzzle that shows how two wrongs can add up to be a right.

This lesson uses the context of a rummy game in order to illustrate how to perform operations with signed integers. It also discusses several other ways of understanding this concept without directly stating the rules. (worksheet)

introduces calculator strategies for the regents exam

Introduces backsolving and pick a number strategies to solve regents problems

Students will make both qualitative and Quantitative Venn Diagrams

A worksheet to practice simplifying algebraic expressions with exponents. Engages students by having them match a celebrity's stage name to their birth name.

This lesson explores the famous question of whether it would be better to recive one lump sum of money or a small amount that is doubled many times in order to introduce exponents.

A worksheet composed of simplifying, solving systems, and inequalities

Use these blank x & y axes for your students to graph on.

Students examine a set of cogs and make guesses as to which direction they will turn in and how many times they will rotate. Students use a specific case to make a general statement about any number of rotations.

A puzzle of a problem that challenges students intuition about how an escalator should work. Tricky.

An assortment of good mixture problems to encourage good problem solving skills.

Two problems that are good for developing number sense and problem solving skills.

Exponent Worksheet that includes Scientific Notation

Worksheet on factoring, quantitative comparisons and exponents

Workshhet on Factoring Quadratic equations and difference of squares.

This is a PowerPoint going over factoring, quantitative comparisons and exponents.

This is a practice test for the New York State regents for Integrated Algebra. Solutions are posted under Intergrated Algebra sample New York Regents 2007 Solutions

These are the solutions to the previously posted Integrated Algebra sample New York Regents 2007.

This is a list of webpages that are sorted by the lesson for teachers use for review in class.
