**2.8**Students understand various mathematical procedures and use them appropriately and accurately.

MA-8-AT-U-3Students will understand that algebra represents mathematical situations and structures for analysis and problem solving. | MA-8-AT-S-VEO1Students will apply order of operations to evaluate and simplify algebraic expressions.
| MA-08-5.2.1Students will evaluate and simplify algebraic expressions applying the order of operations. ## DOK 2MA-08-5.2.2Students will describe, define and provide examples of variables and expressions with a missing value based on real-world and mathematical problems. MA-08-5.3.1Students will model and solve single variable, first-degree real-world and mathematical problems (e.g., 5x + 2 =x + 22, x – 4 < -60). ## DOK 2 |

MA-8-AT-U-4Students will understand that real-world situations can be represented using mathematical models to analyze quantitativerelationships. | MA-8-AT-S-VEO3Students will describe, define and provide examples of variables and expressions with a missing value based on real-world and/or mathematical situations. MA-8-AT-S-EI4Students will model and solve real-world problems with one- or two-step equations or inequalities (e.g., 4x + 2 = 22, x – 4 < -60). | MA-08-5.1.2Students will represent, analyze and generalize simple first and second degree relationships using tables, graphs, words and algebraic notations, and will apply the relationships to solve real-world and mathematical problems. ## DOK 2 |

**Resources, Media and Technology**

- PC’s will be used to gather information and calculate budgets
- Smartboard will be utilized to facilitate instruction
- An overhead projector will be used to display power point display
- Power point will be utilized to facilitate instruction
- Calculators will be used to assist students ability to navigate lesson in allotted time

** **** **** ****Procedures**·

Students will use the web to explore career choices ( www.salary.com Monster Salary) and the salary associated with these careers·

Students will draw a monthly budget based on their research using http://www.mappingyourfuture.org

- There will be an instructional power point that will contain step by step instructions for completing the group tasks
- Students will create a budget of how their money is going to be spent
- Students will share their budgets on the smartboard

#### Assessment Plan

- Students must turn in their budget and it will be graded based on their ability to develop and solve the equations as well as their ability to make reasonable decisions as to what should be bought.
