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. **

###
Who Ran the Farthest?

Students determine by using fractions which fourth-grade teacher ran the farthest.

###
Frontier Days Heros Solve Division Equations to Unite our Nations

Students will be able to creatively and confidently solve one-and two-step problems involving multiplication and division, including interpreting the remainder. In addition, students will be working collaboratively by using critical thinking and activating prior knowledge to solve math operation skills in a real-world situation.

###
Are You the Rule?

Students will be able to understand how to determine the numerical relationship of numbers in a function table.

###
Fraction Pizza PART-y

The students will add and subtract fractions with like denominators using a real-world scenario problem about pizza dough.

###
Can You Multi-Step?

This lesson is designed to allow students to use strip diagrams, standard algorithms (long division), partial product, partial quotient, or area models to solve multi-step equations.

###
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.

###
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!

Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a real-world problem is correct using context and computational skills.

###
Multiplication Matters: Justifying Mathematical Reasoning in Problem Solving

Students solve one-step and multi-step problems, including multiplication and remainders, by engaging in a real-world story problem, using a graphic organizer of their choice.

###
Types of Science Investigations

Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.

###
Experimental Design

Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.

Save the Factory!

Students will design an experiment to test the outcome of friction in force and motion. The students will create an inclined plane demonstrating their knowledge of mechanical energy and the effects of gravity on an object. Students will use previous knowledge of friction to complete their task of stopping their object. Critical thinking skills will be the focus of the lesson as students will have to utilize their scientific problem-solving skills to make decisions regarding their experiment.

###
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.**
