Math lesson for 6th grade teaching algebraic expressions. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
NEW 2.0 version contains 3 lessons, including the original, assembled into modules. Guzinta Math: Algebraic Expressions focuses on writing and seeing structure in algebraic expressions, and beginning work with equations and determining the solutions to equations.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about building and evaluating algebraic expressions--key concepts in 6th grade. The app includes detailed instructor notes for each guided practice problem, with notes about extending discussion around each worked example and problem.
Instructors and/or students can turn on and use the new canvas feature (with improved writing functionality) in the app to write all over the screen--take notes, highlight key terms and ideas, show work, etc.
The second and third modules include interactive models--the Variable Calculator and Distributive Property model--that are used to further support students' mastery of algebraic expression construction and interpretation.
