Students are expected to solve systems of equations problems in this lesson. They are given the opportunity to discuss and solve problems in the way they deem best. They do this in groups so that others may offer their ideas as well and the group members can scaffold each other. They then share their strategies with the class so that everyone can see the different ways of solving the problems. Everyone's knowledge and input is valued and taken into consideration. Answers to problems are then graphed so that all students can see the information in a new way. The problems are pulled from everyday situations so that students can see why the information is relevant. This seems like a great lesson!

This lesson incorporates methods that promote several different learning styles. It used videos, pictures and a project where students create molecules. They even add pictures of their creations to the class website and then discuss their role in the ecosystem. They use several different technology forms, such as online activities, interactive periodic table, and online modules to learn to learn about macromolecules. Many other technology rich activities are also included.

Technical Remarks:

Could website and video links be included? I would be very interested in exploring them.
