Math lesson for 6th grade for teaching inequalities. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
NEW 2.0 version contains 3 lessons, including the original, assembled into modules. Guzinta Math: Order and Absolute Value focuses on comparing and ordering rational numbers, such as whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and absolute values of rational numbers.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about comparing and ordering rational numbers, estimating the magnitude of fractions, and absolute value--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.
In this lesson, students have the opportunity to practice estimating the magnitude of fractions using a blank number line.
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 third module includes a coding lesson, demonstrating sorting and Python's list comprehensions. Students are encouraged to write their own programs to sort numbers in order from least to greatest, or, using the keyword argument reverse=True in the sorted() function, from greatest to least.
