Date: Thurs. February 21, 2013 Grade Level: 7th Grade Course Title: Math 7 Lesson #: 6 of 10

Content Standards addressed by this lesson: 7.RP.2 Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. 7.RP.3 Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them MP8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning Inquiry Questions: When would it be useful to use proportions in every day life? Evidence Outcomes: Every student will be able to: Write and solve proportions pertaining to real world situations Assessment of Evidence Outcomes: Homework: Evens on Practice 5.4 Materials Needed: Warm-Up (1 per student) Practice 5.4 (1 per student) Doc Cam Agenda for Board: Warm-Up Homework review Solving proportions Homework Procedure: Warm-Up: Instruct students to complete the warm-up independently. This warm-up serves as a review of yesterdays lesson. Walk around and monitor student progress. If necessary, help students get started. Once everyone has completed warm-up, have students compare answers with one another. Address student questions.

Homework Review: Read answers to last nights homework assignment. Require students to write the correct answers in their assignment, if they missed a problem. Ask class for problem numbers that they would like to see worked out at board. While going over questions, continually check in with students to determine where their mistakes were made. What misconceptions do they have? Use this information to guide the next part of the lesson. Solving Proportions: Pass out a Practice 5.4 to each student. Ask students where they think setting up a proportion could be useful in their life. Work on odds together as class. Project paper to front of room using document camera. Use the following tips to help students understand this concept: In proportions, its important to note that units must mirror each other in the two fractions. Create a This to that, as this is to that sentence to help determine the proportions fractions. Then, begin by setting up the proportion in words: this this (Of course, when working on a specific problem, youll fill in the that that specific words from the problem.)

While students are beginning their homework assignment, work with small group of students who need additional support. Formalize a problem solving strategy with them. Find a strategy that works best for them. Homework Evens on Practice 5.4
