Duration:
40 minutes
Rationale:
Resources:
Prior Knowledge:
• Solving simple one and two step linear
equations using algebraic techniques is an
important skill for numerically literate citizens.
•
•
•
•
•
•
• Understanding mathematical
conventions when writing algebraic
expressions
• It is important that students can distinguish
between algebraic expressions and
equations and that they understand the
significance of the ‘equals’ sign.
Equations Pre-tests (55 copies)
Equations Pre-test solutions (1 copy)
Selected exercises from 9A &amp; 9B (30 copies)
9A &amp; 9B solutions (30 copies)
Textbooks
H/w questions on whiteboard
• An understanding that pro numerals
can represent variables and values can
be substituted into algebraic
expressions
Outcomes:
Indicators:
Assessment:
• MA4-1WM
• distinguish between algebraic expressions
where pro numerals are used as variables,
and equations where pro numerals are used
as unknowns.
• Pre-tests (formative)
• MA4-2WM
• MA4-3WM
• MA4-10NA
• Whole class discussion/ questioning
when working through pre-test solutions
• Observation/ teacher questioning
during exercises
• Worked problems from exercises 9A &amp;
9B

Comments
- Does not go towards anything!
- Don’t stress if you have no idea, because we are going to cover all of this
in the next few weeks. Just give it a go!
10 min
Work through the solutions as a whole class
Collect pre-tests.
Hand out fresh copy of pre-tests to work through as a whole class. Students
can write on these as the class works through the problems.
- Don’t worry if you didn’t see it straight away. There’s a simple step-by-step
way of solving these questions. We will learn about it in the next few lessons.
- 8=3+5
- For this topic let’s get into the habit of thinking of the equals sign as ‘is the
same as’.
- 8=3+5=1+2+5=2*4
Make sure name is on test!
