Writing Algebraic Expressions
21st Century Lessons Writing Algebraic Expressions Lesson 2

Warm Up OBJECTIVE: SWBAT write algebraic expressions using grouping symbols and the phrase less than. As well as write written expressions from algebraic expressions. Language Objective: SWBAT speak with a partner about translations between algebra and English. Sally made 20 more shots than Kevin, k. Write an algebraic expression to represent how many shots Sally made. k+20 20+k or 2) Damon bought a bin of 68 sour candies. He ate c candies. Write an algebraic expression to represent how many candies Damon has left. 68 – c (Time on this slide - 5 min) Time passed 5 min In-Class Notes Read the slide to the class for them to answer or have them read silently. Clicking will reveal the answers. Preparation Notes The goal of this slide is to review what students have learned in the previous lesson, or their knowledge of writing algebraic expressions. 3) What were the key words that helped you write the algebraic expressions for the problems above? Agenda

Marvin’s Math Explore- Marvin’s Math: Part 1 Pick a number , add two
, multiply by five. What was everyone’s result using 18? Great! Everyone’s response is 100. This is my numerical expression using the number 18. (Time on this slide – 4 min) Time passed 15 min In-Class Notes Read the slide as it appears. Give students about 2 minutes for their turn and talk. The discussion leads into the next slide. May need to review what a numerical expression is. Preparation Notes The goal of this slide is get students thinking about what to do in writing expressions when you have to add first. Read the slide as it appears. Be sure to explain why the answer in 100 in case some students obtain an incorect answer. Give students about 2 minutes for their turn and talk. The discussion is on the next slide. Turn and talk: Is Marvin’s expression correct? Explain your reasoning. Agenda Agenda 5

Turn and talk: Is Marvin’s expression correct? No! What do we need to do in order to make this expression equal 100? Hint Numerical Expression. (Time on this slide – 3 min) Time passed 18 min In-Class Notes Read the slide as it appears. Read the question in the slide. May need to use the hint depending how students answer the questions. Show the correct expression. Preparation Notes As students finish their discussion on whether or not Marvin’s expression is correct, ask for volunteers to share their thoughts. Read the slide as it appears. Review that Marvin is incorrect due to the fact that he didn’t follow the order of operations. A hint is given if students need more prompting on what can be used when trying to add first. Depending how your students answer the question, you may not need the hint. Show the correct expression for students to copy in their notebooks. Be sure to emphasize the purpose and importance of the grouping symbols. This is a great opportunity for the students to visually see the difference of using grouping symbols and how they can change the value of the expression. Agenda

Turn and talk: Is Marvin’s expression correct? No! What do we need to do in order to make this expression equal 100? Since we have to add first, what can we use to show that we want to perform addition FIRST? In-Class Notes This is a hidden slide for the hint. Numerical Expression Agenda

Pick a number, add two, multiply by five. Numerical Expression If 10 is picked If 1 is picked Our goal is to write this as an Algebraic Expression. (Time on this slide - 4 min) Time passed 22 min In-Class Notes Read slide as it appears. This will show the process for thinking about how to write an algebraic expression. Once the Algebraic Expression appears in the slide, prompt students what can we use to represent any number. Preparation Notes The goal of this slide is to show the process of writing Marvin's Math into an algebraic expression. Advancing the slide will show the process of choosing different numbers to help visually see that only number changes. Once the goal appears, prompt students by asking, “What can replace all these different numbers with?” “What in math represents an “unknown”?” Agenda

Explore- Marvin’s Math: Part 1 Algebraic Expression
Our next goal is to write this as an Written Expression. Let’s break it down into 2 parts. How do you think we should write as a written expression? The word sum prompts you to add first. The sum of a number and two. Next we combine the two parts. The sum of a number and two, times five. (Time on this slide - 4 min) Time passed 26 min In-Class Notes Read the slide as it appears. May have to prompt students to think of ways to translate (x + 2). Continue with the slide. Preparation Notes Read the slide as it appears. This is designed to scaffold how to write more challenging algebraic expressions. When asked to write a written expression, students may want to actually use the wording “parentheses”. Also, may need to review the definition of the word. Should students come up with this, this is an opportune time to explain that are other ways to express the word “parentheses”. Go through the slide as it appears. To help with writing (x + 2), take some suggestions: Ask students how they would write it. Record answers on side board if possible. From the previous lessons, they will come up with several answers. If students do not use the word, “sum of”, ask, “How can we write this using the word, sum?” then continue with the slide. Note: Throughout this lesson, students may come up with other ways to write the expression than what is presented in the lesson. It is encourage to not dismiss student’s thinking and encourage more ways and have discussions around them. Agenda

OBJECTIVE ALERT Practice problems Explore- Marvin’s Math: Part 1
Algebraic Expression Written Expression The sum of a number and two, times five. Practice problems Ex. 1 Write a for written expression The sum of a number and four, divided by ten (Time on this slide – 5 min) Time passed 31 min In-Class Notes Read slide as it appears. Keep in mind may have different responses than the ones provided in the slide. Discussion should be had for all responses given. Preparation Notes The beginning of the slide shows the algebraic expression and the written expression side by side. The goal of this slide is to have students practice as a whole class. Keep in mind there are a couple of ways to translate the expressions, which if a brought up by students should be discussed. The translation provided is not the only one to be used or discussed, but most likely will be the common one used by students. Example 2 provided two different examples as you want to stress that a number next a variable, (or quantity) in this case, means to multiplication. Ex. 2 Write an for algebraic expression Four times the difference of a number and six or Agenda

Explore –Marvin's Math: Part 2
Marvin knows 30 fewer math tricks than his friend. Here is the showing the number of tricks Marvin knows. written expression 30 less than x Here are 2 possible Algebraic Expressions. a) b) Which is correct? Lets go back to our basics to figure it out… (Time on this slide - 2 min) Time passed 33 min In-Class Notes Read slide as it appears. The discussion for this example on the next slide. Preparation Notes The purpose of this slide and the next slide is to introduce “less than”. However, to keep the consistency of Marvin the Magician, we chose this problem, therefore, “fewer” is the appropriate word. Clarification that fewer means less than is crucial for the next slide. Read the slide as it appears. Have student decided which expression they think is correct. Do not correct or discuss any possible reasoning. (This will take place in the next slide.) Agenda

1. What is 30 less than 50? What did you do to get your answer? 2. What is 30 less than 72? 42 3. What is 30 less than 56? 26 Turn and Talk: When you see “less than” in a written expression, what is important? 4. What is 30 less than x? x - 30 (Time on this slide - 5 min) Time passed 38 min In-Class Notes: Read the slide as it appears. Advance the slide to see the answer and the process. Before starting number 4, ask students questions similar to: Why is #4 different than the other problems? What is difficult in #4? Does the process change from problems #1-3 to #4? Finish the problems then continue with the slide to have a discussion about the understanding of “less than”. Preparation Notes: The goal of this slide to clarify the misunderstandings of “less than”. (Be sure to connect the terminology to fewer than as well). Read the first question aloud to the students. Be sure to encourage them to write a mathematical expression that represents the written expression. The teacher can type in the numerical expression or write it on the slide. Continue with the next two problems. The fourth question is meant to challenge students to follow the process they used in the first three problems. Some questions to prompt student discussion: Why is #4 different than the other problems? What is difficult in #4? Does the process change from problems #1-3 to #4? Advance the slide to discuss what is important when you see the word “less than?” (The numbers are switched). Be sure to have students share their results incase some students struggled with this.
