Content Area Standard: EngageNY: Module 4, Topic A, Lesson 1: The Relationship of Addition and Subtraction
CC.2.2.6.B.2 Understand the process of solving a one-variable equation or inequality and apply to real-world and
mathematical problems.
Measurable Goal for Lesson: Given 8 problems, students will fill in the correct missing variable or numeral by
evaluating identities such as w - x + x = w and w + x - x = w with 75% accuracy.
Essential Questions:
- How can we represent an expression using tape diagrams?
- What effect does adding and then subtracting the same number have on an equation?
- Why is the equation w+x-x=w called an identity?
Key Vocabulary: Addition, Subtraction, Identity, Variable, Equation, and Expression
Pre-Assessment: Students completed an end of module unit exam prior to beginning the new unit including
multiple choice and free response questions. Incorrect answers were reviewed and corrected to earn partial credit

the classroom.
Last week we practiced using
tape diagrams to represent
addition problems. Your DoNow is reviewing what we

I have put an example of a
tape diagram on the board.
Once you are finished with
your Do-Now flip it over so
Ms. Solomon mark that you
have earned LiveSchool
points for completing it.

Good morning!
If necessary, reminding
students of the expectation
to sit silently and
immediately begin on donow.

Reading do-now directions


to Christian and Anthony.
Giving LiveSchool points
to students that have

Behavior:
- Behavior reminders
