FREE MATH LESSON - “Algebra Unit 1 Free Demo Lesson: Variables and Expressions”

by Funrithmetic
7th - 9th Grade

This is a free lesson (Lesson 1.1, Variables and Expressions) from my Algebra Unit 1: Equations. Note: The digital version is not included in the free version.

Here's more about the Equations Unit:

Start your year off right with this comprehensiveengaging unit over equations! This unit includes all you need to teach your students what they need to know about equations!

What are some features of this unit?

  • The notes are in easy-to-use Cornell style, with "color-able" vocabulary words for a little bit of fun to keep students engaged (and to help improve memory)
  • The student handouts/homework sheets are aligned with each lesson, and one is a fun color-by-number!
  • A thorough study guide helps prepare students for the assessment
  • The quizzes and final assessment are editable if you want to make your own or multiple versions for your classroom
  • Lesson overviews prepare you beforehand! They include CCSS references, pacing suggestions, vocabulary, student "I can" statements, introduction and summary activities, and homework assignments.
  • Writing in Math journal prompts for each lesson get students thinking critically about math and provide an excellent cross-curricular opportunity. Don't worry, I've included a rubric too!
  • A completed teacher's edition is color-coded so you can easily find answers and see exactly what the students do and don't have in their version.

Going digital? No problem!

  • I've included a page with individual links to digital versions of the guided notes, homework, writing prompts, quizzes, study guide, and assessment. These are set as background images in Google Slides (the writing prompts are in Google Forms). These are linked individually so that you can easily assign them using Google classroom.

Topics covered in the unit are:

Lesson 1.1: Variables and Expressions

Lesson 1.2: Solving Equations by Adding or Subtracting

Lesson 1.3: Solving Equations by Multiplying or Dividing

Lesson 1.4: Solving Two-Step and Multi-Step Equations

Lesson 1.5: Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides

Lesson 1.6: Solving for a Variable

Lesson 1.7: Solving Absolute-Value Equations

Lesson 1.8: Rates, Ratios, and Proportions

Lesson 1.9: Applications of Proportions

With the paper and digital format of this unit, you can be flexible in your teaching and instructional delivery! See the preview for a sample of various pages from the unit.
