Lesson 1

Integers

Students explore what integers are and how we use them in our everyday life. The concept of a "Zero Pair" is introduced.

*assignment*

Lesson 2

Ordering Integers

Students use their knowledge of integers to explore order and value.

Lesson 3

Order of Operations

Students learn about PEDMAS, often refereed to as BEDMAS, the order in which you complete multi-step mathematical expressions and equations.

Lesson 4

Writing and Simplifying Expressions

Students learn about the basics of pre-algebra: understanding words problems, substituting and simplifying equations, and data tables.

Lesson 5

Preservation of Equality: Addition and Subtraction

Students explore how to balance addition and subtraction based equations using preservation of equality, the methodology and why it works.

*assignment*

Lesson 6

Preservation of Equality: Multiplication and Division

Students further explore preservation of equality, looking into how to balance multiplication and division equations.

Lesson 7

Table of Values

Students learn how to use a data table or a table of values to solve a series of algebraic expressions.

Lesson 8

Graphing Points

Students explore ordered pairs (graphing points) and how they are used in a Cartesian plane to plot graphs or figures.

*assignment*

Lesson 9

Graphing Patterns

Students learn how to use ordered pairs to create patterns and figures on a Cartesian plane.

*assignment*

Lesson 10

Measuring Distance

Students learn how to measure the distance between two order pairs on a single axis.

*assignment*

Lesson 11

Line Graphs

Students learn how to plot data to create a line graph, learning about the importance of the axes, scaling, and labeling.

*assignment*

Project

Cartesian Battleships

Students are hire by a company to create a new board game using Cartesian planes, Cartesian Battleships.
