At CedarBridge Academy where excellence is valued, we cultivate Bermuda's achievers CedarBridge Academy Lesson Plan for Student Achievement 2010 -2011 Teacher: Damyon Ray Department: Mathematics Date: Oct 11th – 22nd , 2010 Course: Integrated Math I Unit: Geometry & Measurement Topic: Vectors 1. What is the curriculum standard / objective? Students will be able to write vectors as an ordered pair, add and subtract vectors, and be able to apply their knowledge of vector geometry to solve various real world problems. 2. What do I want students to know (content & concepts) and be able to do (skills) by the end of the lesson? (Objectives) LESSON 1: Students will be able to write Vectors as ordered pairs and use the correct vector notation to represent these vectors. LESSON 2: Students will be able to add and subtract vectors and also multiply a vector by a scalar. LESSON 3: Students will be able to understand the relationship between parallel and perpendicular vectors. LESSON 4: Students will be able to use their knowledge of vectors to solve appropriate vector geometry problems. 3. How will I formatively assess students’ knowledge of content, concepts and skills? Students will be formatively assessed daily with mis-conception checks and homework on the perspective lesson. Students will also be assessed with questioning and answering sessions, discussion of real-life issues, and reviewing of class work related to the lesson. September 2010 4. How will I summatively assess students’ level of mastery of the content, concepts and skills? Students will be given a cumulative assessment at the end of the unit. 5. What are the key vocabulary words that I want students to be able to use during this lesson? Vector – a quantity with direction and magnitude (size). Parallel Lines – two lines that never meet and are always the same distance apart. Perpendicular lines – two lines at right angles to each other. Midpoint – the middle point of a line Collinear – points lying in a straight line 6. Describe the sequences of events in the lesson. (Focus on a high level of student engagement and remember to ask yourself if you have included the (1) Do Now activity; (2) a Motivate and Activate activity; (3) Opportunity for movement; (4) Reading & Writing activities; (5) Review; (6) How students will get written information on the content, concepts and skills; (7) Checks for understanding; (8) Gender-based activities (9) Technology (10)Research based instructional strategies; and (11) a Closure activity.) September 2010 LESSON 1 Solve simple linear equations – simplifying expressions 1) DO NOW Solve 1. 2(x – 4) ; 2. 15( -4a + 6) Discuss solution to DO NOW 1. 2x - 8; 2. -60a + 90 2) MOTIVATE AND ACTIVATE Brief discussion on removing brackets. Remind students: o That the term outside the bracket multiplies each term inside the bracket. o Multiplying integers (x) like signs = +ve; (x) different sign = -ve. They can only add like terms. Numbers added to numbers and like variables added with like variables. 3) MOBILITY Students will come to the promethean board to show correct solutions to the worked examples. 4) READING AND WRITING Students will be given word problems solve. 5) REVIEW Teacher and students will review comprehensively the material covered in the Unit and in the lesson and analyze the connections between the new information covered. 6) AQUIRY OF INFORMATION ON THE CONTENT, CONCEPTS AND SKILLS Students will take notes in class Practice various types of problems Discover applications through group work and other methods of instruction 7) CHECKS FOR UNDERSTANDING 8) GENDER BASED ACTIVITIES 9) TECHNOLOGY 10) RESEARCHED BASED INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES 11) CLOSURE ACTIVITIES 12) GUIDED PRACTICE The teacher, then the teacher and students, will solve sample problems using VIP (visual instruction plans). 13) INDEPENDENT PRACTICE Students will solve problems and also come to the Promethean Board. 14) MOBILITY 15) READING AND WRITING September 2010 16) GENDER ACTIVITIES Students will groups by gender during independent practice. 17) TECHNOLOGY Teacher and Students will do demonstration on the Promethean Board. 18) CLOSURE & REVIEW Review the steps involved when removing brackets and collecting like terms. 7. What homework assignment will I give to students? 8. (What questions do I want answered about my teaching and or student learning during the lesson?) Reflections September 2010
