Strand: ALGEBRA - Creating Equations (A.CED)

Create equations that describe numbers or relationships. Limit these to linear equations and inequalities, and exponential equations. In the case of exponential equations, limit to situations requiring evaluation of exponential functions at integer inputs (Standards A.CED.14).

Standard A.CED.4

Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. For example, rearrange Ohm's law V = IR to highlight resistance R.

  • Common Math Formulas
    A list of common mathematics formulas.
  • Introduction to the Materials (Math 1)
    Introduction to the Materials in the Mathematics One of the The MVP classroom experience begins by confronting students with an engaging task and then invites them to grapple with solving it. As students ideas emerge, take form, and are shared, the teacher orchestrates the student discussions and explorations towards a focused mathematical goal. As conjectures are made and explored, they evolve into mathematical concepts that the community of learners begins to embrace as effective strategies for analyzing and solving problems.
  • Module 4: Equations & Inequalities - Student Edition (Math 1)
    The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math One Module 4, Equations and Inequalities, students use units in combinations to define new variables for use in modeling with equations and inequalities, and interpret expressions that are the result of combining units.
  • Module 4: Equations & Inequalities - Teacher Notes (Math 1)
    The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math One Module 4 Teacher Notes, Equations and Inequalities, students use units in combinations to define new variables for use in modeling with equations and inequalities, and interpret expressions that are the result of combining units.
  • Module 5: Systems of Equations & Inequalities - Student Edition (Math 1)
    The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math One Module 5, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, has two learning cycles, built around a common story context that is used throughout the module. The first learning cycle begins by making the representations, tables, graphs, equations, and diagrams, needed for the rest of the module available.
