1 The Other Vancouver Teacher Notes Supplies note paper and calculator Vocabulary formula This lesson is intended to have students see a purpose for rewriting formulas. They convert one way, like Celsius to Fahrenheit. Then they need to rewrite to convert the other way so they don’t have to keep solving equations. NOTE: this lesson is very long. Consider finishing the slide show on the second day. Algebra 1 by Southwest Washington Common Core Mathematics is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. 2014-2015

9 What is the temperature in the other Vancouver? Write down the predicted high and low temperatures for today and the all time record high and low temperatures for today. newspaper Use the equation to convert these temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit. Record the data in a table. °F°C Algebra 1 by Southwest Washington Common Core Mathematics is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. 2014-2015

10 Canadians go south. If Canadians go south for the winter what would they think of our temperatures in, our newspaper? Be prepared to copy down the predicted high and low temperature for today and tomorrow in our Vancouver.
