Students will determine an appropriate tabular/graphic/formulaic linear solution given 3 sets of data points.

Just Graph It!
 Resource ID: TXLS030
 Grade Range: 3
 Subject: Math
Students will be involved in a problem solving lesson in which they are to visually represent previously collected survey data.

How Does the Cookie Crumble?
 Resource ID: TXLS031
 Grade Range: 6
 Subject: Math
Students will selfdiscover how to multiply mixed numbers by using background knowledge of estimation, computations, and real world application of a recipe.

Interpreting Division with Remainders
 Resource ID: TXLS004
 Grade Range: 4
 Subject: Math
Students will be given various one and twostep word problems and asked to interpret the remainder. Students will use foldables and anchor charts to determine under which category (“Drop the Remainder,” “Add One to the Quotient,” “Share the Remainder,” or “The Remainder is the Answer”) the question will fall. After completing that portion of the lesson, students will solve division problems and determine which type of remainder question they are working with. They will use Plicker ^{©} cards to display their answers so the teacher can have immediate formative assessment data.

Distributive Property
 Resource ID: TXLS010
 Grade Range: 3
 Subject: Math
Students break an array apart to represent the sum of two multiplication facts, showing the distributive property.

Dividing Fractions
 Resource ID: TXLS033
 Grade Range: 5
 Subject: Math
Students will model dividing unit fractions and whole numbers.

Modeling and Solving TwoStep Equations
 Resource ID: TXLS012
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Students will use various materials to create models of twostep equations. Then, they will take an equation, create their own model, and solve for the variable from the model.

Making Ten is Easy as Pie!
 Resource ID: TXLS021
 Grade Range: 1
 Subject: Math
Students will practice composing 10 by interacting with a counting story, playing a dice game with ten frames and response sheets, and participating in a small group to extend the learning with three addends.

Learning the TwoStep Equation
 Resource ID: TXLS038
 Grade Range: 3
 Subject: Math
Students will physically represent an array, a strip diagram, and an equation before working collaboratively in small groups to create these three models using a word problem.

Equations and Inequalities
 Resource ID: TXLS034
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Using a graphic organizer, students will write and solve a onevariable, twostep equation using the distributive property. They also will draw a picture and justify their solution.

Comparing Fractional Parts
 Resource ID: TXLS043
 Grade Range: 2
 Subject: Math
Students will participate in wholegroup and smallgroup instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and handson 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.

Does Paper Have Volume?
 Resource ID: TXLS029
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Students will be involved in a problemsolving lesson to determine if paper has volume, find the volume of a piece of paper and a ream of paper, and determine how many pieces of paper will fit inside their classroom.

Discovering the Ratio of Pi
 Resource ID: TXLS031A
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Students will discover the ratio of pi by relating the circumference to the diameter of various circles. Students will use this ratio to approximate the formulas for circumference.

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.

Area of Composite Figures
 Resource ID: TXLS012A
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Students will progress through performance tasks to strengthen their understanding of composite figures. During the performance tasks, students will refer to blueprints to find missing dimensions and solve for composite area.

Volume of Triangular Prisms
 Resource ID: TXLS045
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Students will use handson manipulatives to discover the connection between the shape of the base and the height to determine the volume of a prism.

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.

Area of Composite Figures
 Resource ID: TXLS039
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
Student groups will work collaboratively using the appropriate formulas to find the area of simple figures and combine the area of each shape to find the area of composite figures in realworld situations.

Time Using the Z Method
 Resource ID: TXLS042
 Grade Range: 4
 Subject: Math
In small groups, students will calculate elapsed time using the Z method. This method helps students better understand the importance of start time and end time when performing elapsedtime calculations.
