Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans
Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.
Students will engage in an activity that allows them to explore the different parts of percents: part, whole, and percent, and develop conceptual understanding of percents through the Concrete, Representational, Abstract (CRA) method of instruction.
Organizing Olympic Outcomes
Students will explore frequency tables, dot plots, and stem and leaf plots by creating different representations from a given set of data points.
Roll With It
Students will experience a hands-on lesson regarding ratios. While doing this, students will deepen their understanding of the concepts of ratios.
Place Value Party
In learning stations, students prepare for a birthday party by using their knowledge of place value to compose, decompose, and represent numbers using standard, word, and expanded forms.
Strike a Pose
The students will solve two-step equations through modeling, expressing algebraically, and writing out the steps to their solutions.
Can We Get There?
Students will calculate the rate of change and y-intercept from a real-world problem represented in a graph, a table, and/or an equation. They will then display and present their findings to the class.
No Interest If Paid in Full: How Much Do I Owe?
Students will write a linear equation from a real-world situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.
Decomposing Number Exploration
Students will decompose a number up to 20 using manipulatives and graphic organizers.
Which One Doesn't Belong? Proportional vs Non-Proportional Relationships
Students will make connections as they examine proportional and non-proportional relationships represented in functions including tables, equations, graphs, and verbal descriptions and think critically to determine which one does not belong in a set and why.
Proving Triangles Congruent Using the Side-Side-Side and Side-Angle-Side Postulates
Students will prove: Two triangles are congruent using the Side-Side-Side (SSS) and Side-Angle-Side (SAS) postulates.
Hopping into Real-World Ratios
Students will listen to a book read aloud called If You Hopped Like a Frog that introduces students to proportions. Students will then create word problems for the different animals and their proportions in the story.
Planting the Seeds of Perimeter
Students will create planters that meet specific perimeter dimensions. The students will need to determine the number of sides and the perimeter for their planter.
Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.
Independent and Dependent Variable in Tables and Graphs
Students will use information in a real-world scenario to create a table or graph, translate the meaning of the table or graph, and identify the independent and dependent quantities.
The Shapes Around Us
Students will make connections between real-world objects and the attributes of two-dimensional shapes.
Exploring Number Sense
Students will use manipulatives and a number path to identify numbers one less than or more than a given number.
Comparing Box Plots and Dot Plots
This lesson is a 90-minute lesson that can be delivered in one block or split into two 45 minute lessons. The first part of the lesson engages students in a notice/wonder activity that is designed to help students begin to question how data is represented in box plots and dot plots. The second part of the lesson is designed for students to compare data in box plots and dot plots and identify truths and untruths about the representations.
Telling Time to the Minute
The lesson requires students to match times to the nearest five-minute interval using an analog clock, digital clock, and time written in words. Students will sing a song, show and write the time to the nearest minute, and tell time using analog watches.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
