length of your class period, and the age and ability of your students. There is ample opportunity for differentiation. 2. Assign a reasonable number of problems to be worked on for homework in preparation for class discussion. (See Notes to the Teacher.) Talk may veer off in any number of directions, as you guide the class to look for connections between ideas. This is, of course, an essential part of the process. 3. Copy the appropriate pages of the handout, marking the problems to be completed for homework. Alternatively, you can copy and paste the problems for each assignment onto a handout of your own. 4. In class each day, discuss each problem in turn, having students present their work and asking them questions about their reasoning. Give students time to ask questions until you are satisfied that they understand the basic concepts underlying the problems. 5. To conclude the lesson, ask students to think about the invention of the automobile and to list the jobs that were eliminated or greatly reduced when the automobile replaced horses as a primary means of transportation. (Horse breeders, blacksmiths, livery stables operators, farmers of hay and oats, carriage makers, stagecoach drivers, saddle makers.) Were any jobs created as a result of this invention? (Assembly line workers in automobile manufacturing plants, gas station operators, highway construction workers, auto mechanics, motel staff, fast food and convenience store workers.)
