Hey everyone, I am new to the community, just joined with hopes that I could get some ideas for a demo lesson next week! I have two demo lessons on the 13th, and I will be using the same demo lesson for each. Both districts focus on hands on and engaging activities for students, so I want to make sure that whatever I do is FUN and as hands on as possible. I will be teaching a group of 7th-going-into-8th graders, and all I was given was that it should be an "introductory algebra" lesson. I will have a half hour for the lesson. So...any ideas?? I did my student teaching in 7th grade, so I have somewhat of an idea of what my kids would be capable of in 8th grade algebra, but I'm still not entirely sure what I should do. Should I do solving two step equations or is this too simple? Functions or is that too complex? I don't have a textbook from either school to work with (not that I need it, but it might give me a better idea of where they start off with 8th grade algebra or where they left off at the end of 7th). Thank you in advance!!
