**LESSON PLANS:**

**PLEASE NOTE: Lesson plans are subject to change at any time based on the progress of the classes and what is best for all students. **

**DCA 2.2 Objectives: **

####

#### Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.A.1Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.A.2Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related.

*For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that "increase by 5%" is the same as "multiply by 1.05."*
#### Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.B.3Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.

*For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation*.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.B.4Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.B.4.ASolve word problems leading to equations of the form

*px* +

*q* =

*r* and

*p*(

*x* +

*q*) =

*r*, where

*p*,

*q*, and

*r* are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach.

*For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?*
