Algebra I Sprints in Exponents


Math Shifts (Blank Chart):  Graphic organizer used to view each shift (Focus, Coherence, Fluency, Deep Understanding, Application and Dual Intensity) in terms of what each shift says, what it means for instruction and assessment.

Math Practices (Blank Chart):  Graphic Organizer used to view each mathematical practice to identify meaning and envision its usage at any grade level.

Math Sprints

Math Sprints form the NYS Math Modules for Grades 1-8 Created by Bill Davidson:  Bill Davidson's templates are word documents that can be used to design your own sprints.  Problems in each sprint are sequenced from easiest to hardest.  The expectation is that students give their personal best for 1 minute.

Math Sprints - Grade 6 

Math Sprints - Grade 7 

Math Sprints - Grade 8 

Math Modules (CA BOCES)
Math Modules are student workbook pages, pulled from the teacher module posted on Engage NY.  The student workbooks are split into sprint exercises and lessons, by grade level and module.

Algebra 1 Module 1: Relationships Between Quantities and Reasoning with Equations and Their Graphs (engageny):  In this module students analyze and explain precisely the process of solving an equation.  Through repeated reasoning, students develop fluency in writing, interpreting, and translating between various forms of linear equations and inequalities and make conjectures about the form that a linear equation might take in a solution to a problem.  They reason abstractly and quantitatively by choosing and interpreting units in the context of creating equations in two variables to represent relationships between quantities.  They master the solution of linear equations and apply related solution techniques and the properties of exponents to the creation and solution of simple exponential equations.  They learn the terminology specific to polynomials and understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers.
