This post has been updated for accuracy and relevance as of November 2017.
As a 10th grade math teacher, one of your many responsibilities is to implement lesson plans that 1) are relevant for your individual courses, and 2) address all the core information necessary to meet state requirements. How about some help?
At Concordia, we’re big believers in public scholarship: the more educators can share with other educators, the better—hence, our love for the Internet. A quick Google search can turn up hundreds of free downloadable lesson plans; you just have to be discerning in which ones are reputable and right for you.
Start with this list below, a variety of resources to explore for 10th grade (and other levels) math lesson plans that are engaging, effective, and free.
Free math lesson plan resources
- A to Z Teacher Stuff: This site has six high school-level lesson plans for mathematics, including plans for Order of Operations, Solving for X, and Using Equations to Solve Puzzles.
