###
Mission Possible—The Hierarchy of Polygons

The students participated in three missions that required them to independently classify two-dimensional quadrilaterals in a hierarchy of sets and subsets using a graphic organizer based on their attributes and properties.

###
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.

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
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.

###
Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents

This lesson helps students understand two foundational exponential properties: The Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents. Students will collaborate to formulate a rule for these properties. Ultimately, students should conclude that when the same bases are being multiplied, exponents will be added; and when the same bases are being divided, exponents will be subtracted. As the lesson progresses, students will apply these rules to simplify expressions of various difficulties.

###
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.

###
Trip to the Theme Park

Students will work on a real-world based project in class involving multiplication of decimals requiring budgeting skills.

###
Tinkering with Remainders

**Students will use division to create a remainder scenario using materials provided.**

###
Interpreting Remainders

**Students will solve division word problems including problems where they are required to interpret a remainder.**

###
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 real-world situation.

Balancing Act

Given a prompt, students will solve a multi-step equation using concrete and/or pictorial models.

###
6.08 Bonus Video: Law of Sines—The Ambiguous Case

The Law of Sines can be used to solve for sides and angles of oblique triangles. However, in some cases more than one triangle may satisfy the given conditions. We refer to this as an ambiguous case.

###
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.**
