###
Centers in Subtraction

**Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts. **

###
More Super Duper Math

**Students will gather objects to compare quantities and justify their answers pictorially and verbally. They will use their vocabulary posters and accountable talk menus to discuss with their partners. **

###
The Picture Graph Party

Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

**Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Vertical Alignment**

Click below to learn about the TEKS related to the unit and Research Lesson. The highlighted student expectation(s) is the chosen focus for the Research Lesson.

###
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 equa l 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.**

###
Going Beyond with Number Bonds

Students will use number bonds to compose and decompose numbers to 10.

###
The Shapes Around Us

Students will make connections between real-world objects and the attributes of two-dimensional shapes.

###
Interpreting Scatterplots

Given scatterplots that represent problem situations, the student will determine if the data has strong vs weak correlation as well as positive, negative, or no correlation.

###
Making Predictions and Critical Judgments (Table/Verbal)

Given verbal descriptions and tables that represent problem situations, the student will make predictions for real-world problems.

###
Collecting Data and Making Predictions

Given an experimental situation, the student will write linear functions that provide a reasonable fit to data to estimate the solutions and make predictions.

###
Writing Expressions to Model Patterns (Table/Pictorial → Symbolic)

Given a pictorial or tabular representation of a pattern and the value of several of their terms, the student will write a formula for the nth term of a sequences.

###
Math on the Farm

**In learning stations, students compose and decompose numbers up to 10, in more than one way, using objects, pictures, story mats, tens frames, and number bond mats.**

###
Quadratics: Connecting Roots, Zeros, and x-Intercepts

Given a quadratic equation, the student will make connections among the solutions (roots) of the quadratic equation, the zeros of their related functions, and the horizontal intercepts (*x*-intercepts) of the graph of the function.

###
Applying the Laws of Exponents: Verbal/Symbolic

Given verbal and symbolic descriptions of problems involving exponents, the student will simplify the expressions using the laws of exponents.

###
Using the Laws of Exponents to Solve Problems

Given problem situations involving exponents, the student will use the laws of exponents to solve the problems.

###
Formulating Systems of Equations (Verbal → Symbolic)

Given verbal descriptions of situations involving systems of linear equations the student will analyze the situations and formulate systems of equations in two unknowns to solve problems.

###
Solving Quadratic Equations Using Graphs

Given a quadratic equation, the student will use graphical methods to solve the equation.

###
Determining the Meaning of Intercepts

Given algebraic, tabular, and graphical representations of linear functions, the student will determine the intercepts of the function and interpret the meaning of intercepts within the context of the situation.

###
Predicting the Effects of Changing y-Intercepts in Problem Situations

Given verbal, symbolic, numerical, or graphical representations of problem situations, the student will interpret and predict the effects of changing the *y*-intercept in the context of the situations.

###
Solving Linear Inequalities

The student will represent linear inequalities using equations, tables, and graphs. The student will solve linear inequalities using graphs or properties of equality, and determine whether or not a given point is a solution to a linear inequality.

###
Direct Variation and Proportional Change

The student will use a variety of methods inculding tables, equations and graphs to find the constant of variation and missing values when given a relationship that varies directly.
