In this two step equations worksheet, students solve 14 word problems in short answer format. Students write a linear equation and solve given a word problem.
Students demonstrate how to solve various algebraic equations. In this pre-algebra lesson, students work in teams and use Borenson's Hands-On Equations materials to solve algebraic equations.
In this equations worksheet, students problem solve and calculate the answers to ten pre algebra equations. Students show each step of their work.
In this pre-algebra decimal learning exercise, students complete a total of 28 problems performing multiplication, division, subtraction and addition of decimals and fractions. 
In this pre-algebra learning exercise, students answer questions on basic algebra vocabulary to complete a crossword puzzle.  The one page interactive learning exercise contains eight clues and is self checking.
In this pre-algebra addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers worksheet, students add or subtract fractions in the first 10 problems. They write the answers in simplest terms. They add or subtract mixed numbers in the last 10 problems.
Explore problems with this sixth through eighth grade mathematics lesson plan. Learners investigate solving linear equations using pictures. The kinesthetic and visual use of the pictures and symbols is designed to help them develop a concrete understanding of an abstract concept.
Give your class a list of multiplication and division sentences that contain both positive and negative integers. Have them analyze them to see if they can discover the pattern with the signs. From these patterns, help them develop the rules for the operations. As a reinforcement activity, the class participates in a relay race; each individual in a row of learners completes a problem and passes it back for the next person. 
Talk about delicious math! Pupils solve problems involving rational numbers and analyze real-life problems to find solutions in a pre-algebra class. They discuss the sections of a Hershey's bar in terms of fractions and decimals before taking notes and examining how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions.
Students explore multi-step equations. In this pre-algebra/algebra I lesson plan, students use the TI-nspire computer algebra system to check the steps they used to solve multi-step equations and equations with variables on both sides.
Students read and discuss two poems for meaning. In this language arts/math lesson plan, student count the number of letters in the poem, and then count the number of vowels and consonants. Additionally, students discuss how to turn their counts into percentages.
Students research to find a piece of artwork that contains a parabola shape. They trace the shape three times onto a coordinate plane and find the equation of each graph. The artist is also cited and each student writes a brief biography of the artist in their own words.
Eighth graders determine which numbers are rational numbers. In this number lesson students answer a series of questions related to natural and whole numbers as well as integers and rational numbers. Students work cooperatively in groups.
Students practice writing number sentences. After reading real world problems, they describe the same situation by writing a number sentence. Students use algebra tiles, or counters, to demonstrate the use zero pairs in solving equations. They use a building mat to model adding and subtracting integers.
In this algebra activity, students rewrite word problems using algebraic terminology and solve problems dealing with ratios. There are 12 problems with an answer key.
In this algebra worksheet, 11th graders solve word problems using algebraic equations. There are 8 word problems with an answer key.
In this solar flare reconstruction worksheet, students read about the 'saturation' point of satellite detectors when solar flares are at their most intense phase of brightness. Students are given x-ray flare data and they re-plot the data to estimate the peak of intensity. They create 2 exponential functions to fit the data and estimate the peak intensity and time. Students use calculus to integrate one of the functions and calculate the total energy radiated by the flare.
Students investigate the area of squares and circles. In this geometry instructional activity, students calculate the area and probability of simple events. They work on a laptop using Safari.
In this proportion word problem worksheet, students read real-life problems and solve proportions. This four-page worksheet contains 18 problems. Answers are provided on the last page.
In this word problem worksheet, students read story problems, write equations to match the problem and solve the equations. This four-page worksheet contains 14 problems. Answers are provided on the last page.
