131. Pythagorean Theorem 071008
...thagorean theorem. E. CLOSURE Today we reused our knowledge of area and perimeter again, but this time for a figure for which we did not know all the side lengths. How did we find the missing side length? What is the Pythagorean theorem? For the remainder of this block, we are going to review some polynomial work. F. ASSESSMENT  TSW apply the Pythagorean theorem to triangles with missing lengths in order to solve perimeter and area questions. (DOK 2  Algebra I, 4.b) Informal: TTW monitor student progress by verbally checking (M) for understanding of the Pythagorean theorem(C). Formal: Students will take a test...

138. Systems of Linear Equations 071408
...slopeintercept form? You can graph it. That graph contains all of your answers to what x and y equal. Today we are going to learn how to solve linear equations using graphical and algebraic methods, and whether or not they even have a solution and how many they have. But before we can move on from polynomials and area and perimeter, we have to go over a few last things. D. PROCEDURE 1. TTW hand back all the tests and other grades that have not yet been returned. TTW explain the grading procedure for select questions from Friday's exam, and explain to the students what the teacher wants to see in a full, correct a...
