## Math, Language Arts and Properties of the Real Number System

## Overview of Lesson

The ebook,

__The Real Number System__will be used to review the number sets that make up the real numbers. This teacher-created book will be shared with the class, both through their Chromebooks and projected on the board. Students will use this book as an example to create an ebook for the properties most commonly used in Algebra 1.## Standards - Mathematics

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2.A

Introduce a topic; organize complex ideas, concepts, and information to make important connections and distinctions; include formatting (e.g., headings), graphics (e.g., figures, tables), and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2.B

Develop the topic with well-chosen, relevant, and sufficient facts, extended definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples appropriate to the audience's knowledge of the topic.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2.C

Use appropriate and varied transitions to link the major sections of the text, create cohesion, and clarify the relationships among complex ideas and concepts.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2.D

Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to manage the complexity of the topic.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2.E

Establish and maintain a formal style and objective tone while attending to the norms and conventions of the discipline in which they are writing.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2.F

Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the information or explanation presented (e.g., articulating implications or the significance of the topic).

## Learning Activity 1

- As a class, we will use the ebook
__The Real Number System__to review the number sets that make up the real number system. - Students will use Storyjumper to create an ebook to review the following properties:
- distributive
- associative property of addition, multiplication
- commutative property of addition, multiplication
- multiplicative and additive identities
- multiplicative and additive inverses
- zero product
- reflexive
- symmetric
- transitive

- Students will be divided into groups and assigned one property. Each group will research the property, define it and give examples using different number sets.
- Class will be directed to Storyjumper. As a group, students will design one or two pages for our class ebook.
- Upon completion, this ebook will be shared with all classes.

## Learning Activity 2

- This activity will span the entire school year. Students will be divided into groups. Each group must choose one curriculum topic from the list provided in September and create an original ebook on Storyjumper. Each group will have two weeks to create and present their ebook. Books should be modeled after the teacher-created example. One group will create and present their book each month, with all books completed and presented by June.
- Each book must be at least six pages long.
- Students should include equations, images, text and materials that will help explain their topic.
- Anything used from the internet must be properly credited.
- Text should be checked for proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
- Each group will be responsible for presenting their book to the class.
