### Solving Inequalities

- Lesson plan -

Solve inequalities by adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Graph solutions on a number line. Solve contextual problems using inequalities.

### Order of Operations

- Lesson plan -

Review understanding of order of operations and apply order of operations to solve number problems.

### Patterns & Functions

- Lesson plan -

Extend, describe, and create numeric patterns. Use words and symbols to describe rules for functions and use the rules to solve simple problems.

### Word Problems

- Lesson plan -

Identify necessary information, missing information, and unnecessary information when solving math word problems.

### Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring

- Lesson plan -

Use algebra tiles to model factoring trinomial expressions. The final section of the lesson covers solving quadratic equations by factoring.

### Patterns & Tables

- Lesson plan -

Solve problems by extending the pattern, finding the rule and using tables.

### Order of Operations with Exponents

- Lesson plan -

Evaluate expressions with exponents using order of operations. Given the answer, insert parentheses into an expression.

- Lesson plan -

Students will estimate to judge if answers are reasonable in addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication problems.

### Estimation

- Lesson plan -

Estimate sums and differences.

### Scale Drawing

- Lesson plan -

Solve problems involving scale drawings and scale models; find scale factors.

### Simple Problem Solving Strategies

- Lesson plan -

Introduce simple solving problem strategies including looking guess and check, drawing a picture, making a table and making an organized list.

### Estimation Strategies

- Lesson plan -

Use a range of estimation strategies, including: rounding, front-end, clustering, compatible numbers, in order to make reasonable estimates and to estimate efficiently.

### Solve Proportion Problems

- Lesson plan -

Solve proportion problems using rates, similarity and percents.

### Arithmetic & Geometric Sequences

- Lesson plan -

Identify and extend arithmetic and geometric sequences. Find the common differences of arithmetic sequences. Find the common ratio of geometric sequences. Find the nth term of an arithmetic or geometric sequence.

### Solving Quadratic Equations by Taking Square Roots

- Lesson plan -

Solve equations with exponents. Estimate square and cube roots.

### Greater Common Factor and Least Common Multiple

- Lesson plan -

Find the Least Common Multiple and Greater Common Factor of two or more numbers. Apply to solve word problems using LCM and GCF.
