Working with Literal Equations
The lesson will provide a conceptual basis for illustrating the parallelism between solving multistep equations and translating literal equations into solutions for specified variables.
Analyzing Data Using a Dot Plot
Students will construct a dot plot using data collected on the faces of a cube after it is rolled. Students will then use a key to change the data to represent a larger population.

Volume of Triangular Prisms
Students will use handson manipulatives to discover the connection between the shape of the base and the height to determine the volume of a prism.
It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking
Students will experiment with choosing tools to measure around a previously created pet habitat in preparation for choosing appropriately sized food bowls. Students will use a graphic organizer to record tools chosen and to explain why those tools were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.
Area of Composite Figures
Students will progress through performance tasks to strengthen their understanding of composite figures. During the performance tasks, students will refer to blueprints to find missing dimensions and solve for composite area.

Humpty Dumpty's Mystery Fall
Students will listen to the story of Humpty Dumpty and share what they know about the nursery rhyme character. Then, they will help solve the math mystery of Humpty Dumpty and determine the number of broken eggs by finding the missing addend.

Comparing Fractional Parts
Students will participate in wholegroup and smallgroup instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and handson activities to explore fractional parts. Ultimately, students will understand that when dividing a whole into fractions, the smaller the fractional part, the greater the number of parts, and the larger the part, the fewer the number of parts.

Compound Probability: Independent vs. Dependent Events
Students will review steps for solving compound probability problems through an activity involving doughnuts. Students will then determine the difference between independent and dependent events through compound probability task cards. To encourage students to work through their struggle, students will rate themselves on a scale measuring effort and achievement at the end of the lesson.

Polygons and Quadrilaterals
Learners will engage in higher level thinking and studentcentered activities by building on prior knowledge of geometry, actively listening to a polygon story, and applying the new vocabulary through various handson rotations.

Give a Hoot . . . Fraction Scoot
Students will add and subtract unlike denominators using pictorial models and manipulatives. During the lesson, they will use both group and independent work to build confidence as they use a variety of formative assessments to check for understanding. The final activity in the lesson has both application of the concepts being taught and a personal reflection of understanding.
Young Architects
Students will explore area by finding square footage of the “dream home” they designed. They will use any method with which they feel confident, using skills that have been previously taught.

Analyzing Bar Graphs: Candy Machines
Working in groups, students will examine a bag of candy to determine if the machine that bags the candy is working properly. They will organize data on the colors of the candy in a frequency table and a bar graph. They will calculate the fraction of each color in the bag and compare the fractions to a quota set up by the factory to determine if the machine needs maintenance. Students will create a report about their findings, write a question that requires students to interpret data represented in a bar graph, and reflect in their journals.

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.
TXRCFP: Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points for K8 Mathematics Revised 2013
The Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points Revised 2013 was created from the 2012 revision of the TEKS as a guide for implementation of effective mathematics instruction by identifying critical areas of content at each grade level.
Representing Whole Number Quantities
This activity provides an opportunity for students to represent whole numbers with pictures.
