This expressions and equations lesson teaches students how to simplify expressions with roots. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will simplify a variety of expressions with roots. This lesson focuses on students recognizing perfect squares and cubes in order to simplify expressions.

This number sense lesson focuses on simplifying radical expressions. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students read the radical expression and identify the radicand. Then, they find the prime factors of the radical expression and rewrite it as the product of prime factors of the radicand. Finally, they simplify the radical expression and interpret the solution. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.

This reasoning with equations and inequalities lesson teaches students how to solve linear inequalities in one variable. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will solve linear (first degree) inequalities, interpret the solution set and express it graphically on a number line.

This seeing structure in expressions lesson teaches students how to factor quadratic equations in the form ax^2 +bx +c where a =1. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will factor quadratic equations and check their results or determine the equation cannot be factored.

This seeing structure in expressions lesson teaches students how to factor quadratic equations in the form ax2 +bx +c where a ≠1. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will use an algorithm to factor more difficult quadratic equations and check their results or determine the equation cannot be factored.
