• Subject: Math

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

3. Does Paper Have Volume?

• Resource ID: TXLS029
• Subject: Math

Students will be involved in a problem-solving 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.

4. Just Graph It!

• Resource ID: TXLS030
• Subject: Math

Students will be involved in a problem solving lesson in which they are to visually represent previously collected survey data.

5. • Resource ID: TXLS031
• Subject: Math

Students will self-discover how to multiply mixed numbers by using background knowledge of estimation, computations, and real world application of a recipe.

6. Interpreting Division with Remainders

• Resource ID: TXLS004
• Subject: Math

Students will be given various one- and two-step 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.

7. Distributive Property

• Resource ID: TXLS010
• Subject: Math

Students break an array apart to represent the sum of two multiplication facts, showing the distributive property.

8. Young Architects

• Resource ID: TXLS062
• Subject: Math

Students will explore area by finding square footage of the “dream home” they designed. They will use any method with which they feel confident, using skills that have been previously taught.

9. Humpty Dumpty's Mystery Fall

• Resource ID: TXLS056
• Subject: Math

Students will listen to the story of Humpty Dumpty and share what they know about the nursery rhyme character. Then, they will help solve the math mystery of Humpty Dumpty and determine the number of broken eggs by finding the missing addend.

10. Discovering the Ratio of Pi

• Resource ID: TXLS031A
• 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.

11. Dividing Fractions

• Resource ID: TXLS033
• Subject: Math

Students will model dividing unit fractions and whole numbers.

12. Modeling and Solving Two-Step Equations

• Resource ID: TXLS012
• Subject: Math

Students will use various materials to create models of two-step equations. Then, they will take an equation, create their own model, and solve for the variable from the model.

13. Making Ten is Easy as Pie!

• Resource ID: TXLS021
• 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.

14. Learning the Two-Step Equation

• Resource ID: TXLS038
• 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.

15. Equations and Inequalities

• Resource ID: TXLS034
• Subject: Math

Using a graphic organizer, students will write and solve a one-variable, two-step equation using the distributive property. They also will draw a picture and justify their solution.

16. Area of Composite Figures

• Resource ID: TXLS012A
• 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.

17. Compound Probability: Independent vs. Dependent Events

• Resource ID: TXLS044
• 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.

18. Volume of Triangular Prisms

• Resource ID: TXLS045
• Subject: Math

Students will use hands-on manipulatives to discover the connection between the shape of the base and the height to determine the volume of a prism.

19. It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking

• Resource ID: TXLS052
