Ever wondered how to teach how to use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true in an engaging way to your 6th-grade students? Looking for way to cover common core standards CCSS 6.EE.B.5?
In this lesson plan, students will learn about substitution in equations and inequalities and their real-life applications. Through artistic, interactive guided notes, checks for understanding, a doodle & color by number activity, and a maze worksheet, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of using substitution to determine solutions for equations and inequalities.
The guided notes provide a structured approach to teaching the topic, integrating checks for understanding to ensure that students are on the right track. Following the guided notes, students will have the opportunity to practice their skills with a fun color by code activity, a maze worksheet, and additional problem sets.
The lesson culminates with a real-life application, where students will read and write about the real-life uses of using substitution to solve mathematical problems. This application will help students see the relevance of the topic in their everyday lives.
