Solving Equations with Parentheses
In this 3 day mini unit, 3rd grade students will learn about solving an equation with parentheses.
Day 1- students learn and practice as a whole class solving equations with parentheses.
Day 2- students take a quick pre-quiz to determine their comfortability solving equations with parentheses. Students are then grouped into one of three groups to provide either re-teach the material, clarify misunderstandings, or push students to think more deeply about the content. The third group, to challenge their understanding, will make educational videos to teach others in the class. The second group, after meeting with the teacher to clarify misunderstandings, will use a rubric to review the videos and provide feedback.
Day 3- students watch videos to review then take a similar post-quiz to determine if all students have gained an understanding of solving equations with parentheses.
