Special Needs Population: Learning Disabled in high school regular Math Classroom Goal of Lesson: Solve Algebraic equations using factoring.
Standards Addressed: This satisfies the Illinois state standard 8.A.4b as described. 8.A.4b Represent mathematical patterns and describe their properties using variables and mathematical symbols. Materials:
3 x 5 or 4 x 6 cards
3 x 5 or 4 x 6 box
Teacher will guide students in learning how to factor Trinomials properly. Classroom Setting:
The students will work at their own desks for some of the activities and others will be at the computer. Adapted Plan: Students will be assigned seats in the computer lab. Purpose: This will limit distractions for certain students who are not able to handle them. Students may need to be placed away from the door, etc. There is more of a chance of someone coming in than in a normal classroom due to students having study halls and needing to use the computers for assignments. Prewriting
Activity 1A: Before we begin the lesson, the students will be given worksheet 1A. This worksheet is designed to have the students recall previous knowledge that will be relevant to this lesson. It requires that the students recall information and looking over previous text sections and notes.
Activity 1B: The students will be provided with a list of vocabulary words. They will be required to put each word on a separate 3 x 5 or 4 x 6 card. The students will also need to look up the definition of the word in the back of the textbook. Using the definition, they will restate it in their own words and use it in a sentence on the notecard as well. Each notecard will be put in their 3 x 5 or 4 x 6 box. This box is used so they can look up words while reading the text if they need to review what the word means. To do this easily, they will be required to have all words alphabetical in their box....
