PRE AP 7TH MATH 7  December 7, 2015 
Objective (I will…)  Students will write expressions and equations for real world problems. 
Student Activities  Use whiteboards and markers to set up and solve equations. 
Assess./Evaluations  During lessons the following will be used on a daily basis to assess the instruction being given: Students will be given individual whiteboards and expo markers to work problems and flash the boards up towards the instructor to check for accuracy. Thumbs up and down and sides ways will alert the teacher of who is understanding completely, somewhat, or not at all. Standing up in chair to check for understanding. Students who can’t stand up are helped by the instructor or peers to assist them where needed so they can be successful and stand up when they’ve completed the problem. (students with disabilities will be given a bold color sheet of paper to hold up to indicate they have completed the work assigned) Shoulder check. Students will finish a problem and stand at the wall and wait for others to finish. They check each other’s work. IF a student has worked the problem incorrectly they student to their left will walk to a free area in the room and assist the student with where they made a mistake. Quizzes will be administered weekly and Test biweekly. Homework will be graded in class and gone over after grading them. Quizzes and test will be graded and handed back the next day and gone over to correct the problems students have missed. Plickers will be used to check for understanding. 
Academic Vocab.  Equation Expression Variables 
Standard   Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
 Solve multistep reallife and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.

Homework  Division of word problems and averages. 
Advisory  Work on multiplying single digit numbers with mastery of 100%~ Mrs. Fagan Be in each teacher’s room getting teachers trained and familiar with Data Director and Plickers. 
IEP Modifications  Read aloud: short stories and word problems for clarification. Give the students a hard copy and a highlighter to highlight words they are not familiar with. Monitor: ask students if they are familiar with the word expression. When they say they are not familiar I give the example that it means “math problem” Strategy: Go back over the words highlight and give examples of an easier word that they link to the new term they are not familiar with. Repetition: ask the student read the new word and associate with a word they have written above the highlighted word. Notes: Students have their notes to refer back to and use on each lesson, quiz, and test. Extended time One on one assistance Bigger font on papers 
ELL Modifications  Mountain Math Brain Work has printed version in Spanish and all ELL student have the option to both English and Spanish version. Students will be monitored, given repetition with work Mountain Math on a daily basis. All work will be translated into a Spanish version using Google Translate. Will use pair share in class and have English/Spanish speaking students paired with Spanish speakers to answer questions they have on the group work. Aids have been provided in each 7^{th} grade mathematics class to assist the teacher with the verbal translation during class time when instruction is being given. If notes are given, copies are printed and distributed. Highlighting and underlining for reinforcing of vocabulary. 
DOMAINS  Domain 4: Professionalism NMTEACH 4C: reflecting on teaching  Collaborates with colleagues to reflect on, and apply, the necessary modifications for instructional practices that address the academic and linguistic needs of all students.
 Engages in opportunities to support and mentor colleagues by sharing knowledge, information, an strategies for effective instructional practices
 Explains to students, parents, and colleagues how and why assessment data is used to inform and direct instructional practices.

Quizzes will be administered weekly and Test biweekly. Homework will be graded in class and gone over after grading them. Quizzes and test will be graded and handed back the next day and gone over to correct the problems students have missed. Plickers will be used to check for understanding. 
Vocabulary  Divison Equivalent Scale factor 
Standard   Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.
 Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.
