Unit Title: Linear Equations Name: Melanie Trevino


Content Area: Algebra Grade Level: Eighth
CA Content Standard(s)/Common Core Standard(s):
Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
7. Solve linear equations in one variable. a. Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no
solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent
equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers). b. Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients,
including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

Big Ideas/Unit Goals:

Students will be able to solve linear equations with one variable. Students will be able to solve equations with a different variable instead of the normal x variable.

Unit Summary:

Students will be able to use different methods to solve linear equations. Students will be able to utilize Venn diagrams, graphs, and note to help them solve these problems.
Students will be allowed to use a graphing calculator for certain lessons to help them recheck their work or work backwards to get the equation. Student will be assessed by
quizzes, assignments, and exams to test their knowledge of the unit.

Assessment Plan:
Entry-Level: Formative: Summative:
Mini Quiz: to understand how much knowledge Guided Notes: Solve practice problems. Create A Problem: Student must be able to make up
students have on this topic. Webercise: Be able to graph online. their own problem, solve it, and include a graph.
Worksheet: Be able to graph without a calculator. Exam: Solve a series of linear equations and graphs
Graphic Organizer: Work with another student to with no calculator, notes, or books.
