    Compound Probability: Independent vs. Dependent Events

    • Resource ID: TXLS044
    • Grade Range: 7
    • Subject: Math

    Students will review steps for solving compound probability problems through an activity involving doughnuts. Students will then determine the difference between independent and dependent events through compound probability task cards. To encourage students to work through their struggle, students will rate themselves on a scale measuring effort and achievement at the end of the lesson.

    It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking

    • Resource ID: TXLS052
    • Grade Range: 1
    • Subject: Math

    Students will experiment with choosing tools to measure around a previously created pet habitat in preparation for choosing appropriately sized food bowls. Students will use a graphic organizer to record tools chosen and why they were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.

    Comparing Fractional Parts

    • Resource ID: TXLS043
    • Grade Range: 2
    • Subject: Math

    Students will participate in whole-group and small-group instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and hands-on activities to explore fractional parts. Ultimately, students will understand that when dividing a whole into fractions, the smaller the fractional part, the greater the number of parts, and the larger the part, the fewer the number of parts.
