###
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.

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Centers in Subtraction

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

###
Solving Equations and Inequalities

Students will be divided into four groups and work on their assigned task to become an expert. They will match vocabulary terms with definitions and examples, use the “Pass the Pen” strategy to create and solve equations or inequalities, or write a real-world problem for an equation given. The experts will then teach these concepts to their peers.

###
45-45-90 Triangles

To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.

###
Finding Clues to Solve Equations and Inequalities

**Students will solve one variable two-step equations and inequalities using a variety of materials while working independently and collaboratively in learning stations.**

###
When Life Gives You Lemons

**Students create input-output tables to find numerical patterns and relationships in the real world through the process of making lemonade.**

###
Who Ran the Farthest?

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

###
Express Yourself

Students determine which expression is a truth or a lie by generating equivalent expressions.

###
Keep Your Balance!

**Students are introduced to solving one-variable, one-step equations using addition and subtraction through models and hands-on activities. The students will learn the substitution method of checking answers.**

###
Perfecting Percents

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.

###
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.

###
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. **

###
Perfectly Proportional Percents

Students will collaborate to explain verbally how to solve percent proportions and scaling while showing their thinking.

###
Working with Literal Equations

The lesson will provide a conceptual basis for illustrating the parallelism between solving multi-step equations and translating literal equations into solutions for specified variables.

###
Using Theoretical and Experimental Probability to Make Predictions

Given an event to simulate, the student will use theoretical probabilities and experimental results to make predictions and decisions.

###
Understanding Multiplication Using Cell Phone Plans

Students will multiply to compare cell phone plans in order to determine the best deal and to connect the standard algorithm to other multiplication strategies and place value in the real world.

###
Strike a Pose

The students will solve two-step equations through modeling, expressing algebraically, and writing out the steps to their solutions.

###
Rational Number Stations

**Students will visit two different stations and work as a group to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.**

###
The Picture Graph Party

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