This is a task from the Illustrative Mathematics website that is one part of a complete illustration of the standard to which it is aligned. Each task has at least one solution and some commentary that addresses important asects of the task and its potential use. Here are the first few lines of the commentary for this task: For a science project, Sammy observed a chipmunk and a squirrel stashing acorns in holes. The chipmunk hid 3 acorns in each of the holes it dug. The sq...

In CK-12 Middle School Math Concepts Grade 8, the learning content is divided into concepts. Each concept is complete and whole providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Theme-based concepts provide students with experiences that integrate the content of each concept. Students are given opportunities to practice the skills of each concept through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and explore more practice. There are also video links provided to give students an audio/visual way of connecting with the content.

Often students are confused about where to start when solving a multi-step equation. In this lesson the equation is labeled as a party. The 'host' is labeled (x) with remaining operations being labeled according to their relationship to the host (friends, family, acquaintances, etc...). Technology assignments are used as one method to assess student understanding.

Students will review the definition of 'like terms' and combining like terms. …

Students will review the definition of 'like terms' and combining like terms. They will then learn to apply this to adding polynomials. Students will have an opportunity to work practice problems as they are viewing a PowerPoint presentation of the lesson. They will be adding polynomials using both the horizontal method and the vertical method.
