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.
Balancing Act
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.
The Shapes Around Us
Students will make connections between realworld objects and the attributes of twodimensional shapes.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!
Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a realworld problem is correct using context and computational skills.
Demystifying Remainders
This lesson will introduce fourthgrade students to the concept of a remainder and the meaning of a remainder in the context of a word problem.
Running the Race with Equivalent Fractions
Students will relate positions on a relay track to a number line. Through discovery, the students will be able to identify and represent fractions and equivalent fractions on a number line.
Avoiding Common Subtraction Errors
Students will perform an error analysis of common subtraction errors related to the standard algorithm.
The Picture Graph Party
Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

Adding Fractions on a Number Line
Students will work collaboratively in small groups to create number lines, and then use those number lines to model a realworld situation.

Interpreting Division with Remainders
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.
Make a Hit with Decimals
Students will compare and order decimals using baseball batting statistics. Through discovery, students will determine the top six out of eleven players to be recruited for the school’s baseball team, present their findings, and explain reasons for their orderings. From students’ explanation, strategies for ordering decimals will be determined and used to adjust subsequent lessons.

Time Using the Z Method
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.

What's on the Menu?
Students will practice solving one and twostep problems in a simulated realworld situation by calculating the costs of different Thanksgiving dinners.
