If you are new here, I would love to share with you a few of our most popular posts and features!

First, there is a breakdown of the Algebra 1 CCSS content on the right hand side bar. You will be able to look for great teaching ideas and plans there. Here is thelink to Unit 1 to get you started. While you are there be sure to sign up for the free, Unit 1 Bonus Pack!

Second, here are a few links to our most popular posts. Many teachers find the the Common Core Assessment Examples helpful. Teachers that are working on organizing the Algebra 1 CCSS the Semester Skills Lists are very useful. Many teachers also like help with technology in the classroom, if this is you, the Kahoot tutorial and introduction will be perfect.

Again, I am so excited you are here. Please feel free to contact me at anytime!

The Common Core State Standards do not allow us, as teachers, the luxury of a checklist. Each standard has to many components. This is my attempt to be sure that I am teaching each standard to the full extent that is expected and that will help my students be successful.

A.CED.1 Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.*

To break this down, I began listing all the components students would need to understand to master this standard. I checked sample problems and online resources to be sure that I was not overlooking anything.

I then assigned everything on this list to a unit, being sure nothing gets missed. You will notice on my lesson plans for each unit I will only list the part of the standard being covered to help keep my focus on the skills for that unit and how they are part of my Big Picture Lesson Plan.

In a nutshell, the Common Core Standard A.CED.1 is asking students to be able to create and solve equations in one variable to answer questions.

Please feel free to take a look at these Common Core sample problems, all A.CED.1, and see how they will progress in difficulty throughout the Algebra 1 course.

Algebra is a major component of math that is used to unify mathematic concepts. Algebra is built on experiences with numbers and operations, along with geometry and data analysis. Some students think that algebra is like learning another language. This is true to a small extent, algebra is a simple language used to solve problems that can not be solved by numbers alone.
