Lesson Plan, 6-9pm, Wednesday, 6 Febrauary, 12019 HE rm. 211, SDCE, North City Campus
Instructor: Shira Destinie Jones
In our Learning Toolbox:
Pre-reading means skimming the question, or paragraph or chapter before you start to read
closely (to take notes), so that you have an idea of what you are about to read before you begin.
copy into your notes, and MindMap each (what is a Mind Map??):
equation indefinite pronouns prime factorization Process of Elimination
influential singular integer Get a “Ballpark idea”
of the likely answers
founder plural natural #, even/odd PTranslate the question
into smaller steps
astronomy specific negative number Check the solution for
tone refer to 0 State “your final
answer” in correct
6pm-6:02: Reflect on who might have invented Algebra.
Write one or two sentences explaining what an equation is, and who you think invented
equations. Why do you think so? (If you want to hear a story, write “Yes, I would like to hear a story” on
your paper, as well.) Please raise your hand when done.
Imagine you are a young girl living long ago, and what could motivate her to risk her life for
others. (Pg 15?, Tales from the Arabian Nights, D. Jo Napoli)
(Curiosity Questions: ? ?)
Why do you think the characters made the choices they did in this story?)
7pm: Stand up & Stretch!
7:00-7:07 Reading Comprehension: What does tone tell you about the author’s intentions or
By the early 600s, Muhammad, the founder of Islam, had become an influential leader.
Muslims encouraged trade, communications and developed standards and techniques for
research used today. Muslim contributions include algebra.
What tone does this paragraph seem to have: negative, positive?
What can the tone of a piece tell you about how the author may want readers to feel?
7:07 Grammar lecture: Indefinite pronouns
What is singular? What does specific mean? (that one!)
A pronoun that does not refer to a specific person/thing is an Indefinite pronoun.
A pronoun that refers to only one non-specific person or thing is a Singlular
Indefinite pronoun, but a pronoun that refers to more than one (people/things) is a Plural
Indefinite pronoun:
Indefinite pronouns:
Singular Plural Depends on reference
anyone, anybody, everyone,
everybody, no one, nobody,
someone, somebody
few some, all
either, neither both any
each many none
one several most
Nobody is going to like
Both of those books are
great gifts.
All of my mind is focused.
Either book is a great gift. Both books are great
All of my ideas are fantastic.
Do first question together, then online Indefinite pronouns exercise, Khan Academy (or request paper)…
7:15 Continue with Language Arts work from folders until 7:45; Break if desired, from 7:30-7:45
7:45 Math review warm-up Question: ? Ask any math questions!!!
Work on your mathematics from folders…
8:20: Stand up, stretch, and think about 0: is it a number?
Please write one sentence explaining what you think or imagine that zero is used for.
Why do you think we need it?
8:22 Mathematics: Operations with Negative numbers
If you wanted to subtract 10 from 17 (i.e. 17-10=x), but there was no zero, could
you do it?
Remember that 0 (zero) is not a number, but a place holder. It allows us to be
able to add and subtract, and also to tell natural numbers (or counting numbers) from negative
Like this: {…, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3…}
The entire set of negative numbers, 0, and natural numbers is called Integers.
An even number is any multiple of 2 (what does that mean?).
So then what is an odd number?
What factor does any even number always have? Why?
As an equation, that looks like x = 2 * y, if x is an even number.
How can you tell if a number has 2 as a factor?
Prime Factorization!! 🙂 Let’s factor the number 20 down to its prime
factors: 20=2*x
20=2*10=2*5*2, so the prime factors of 20 are 2 and 5.
That’s how we prove that 20 is even number.
Let’s try some more if you want to…
Other things to remember about negative numbers:
-x*-y=xy [or -x(-y)=xy, since a negative times a negative = positive]
-x*y=xy [a negative times a positive = negative]
Do online Negative numbers exercise on Khan Academy or request paper…
8:40 Exit Questions: 1. From where did Europe get Algebra?
2. How do you know that 40 is an even number?
3. What is -8*3?
4. What are the prime factors of 15?
8:45 Turn in Exit Slip, Dismissal
