###
Conversations in Art

In this lesson, students will learn the critique process using description, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation. Students will create an evaluation of artwork using the critique process and communicate their understanding through written responses and discourse.

###
Lines of Symmetry

Students will work collaboratively with a partner to discover what is a line of symmetry.

###
Fractions with Multi-Step Problems

Students will be able to work collaboratively while baking to find the least common multiples of fractions with unlike denominators and create equivalent fractions, then add or subtract.

###
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.

###
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.

###
Math at the Carnival

**As students rotate through engaging learning stations, they utilize concrete objects, pictorial models, mnemonic devices, and strip diagrams to solve real-world, two and three-digit subtraction word problems, with and without regrouping.**

###
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.

###
Keeping it Concrete with Candy

Students will work collaboratively to apply and use digits, value, greater than/less than and base 10 knowledge to communicate numbers up to 1200 with a Halloween theme.

###
Perfectly Proportional Percents

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

###
One-Step Word Problems

Students participate in a teacher-created three-act task in order to solve math word problems. They reactivate their prior knowledge and determine the question to solve the main problem during Act One. Act Two engages students in a differentiated, rich task. During Act Three, students compare and discuss their work with peers outside their original groups.

###
Solve Problems using Place Value Strategies with a Carnival Theme

Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious real-world scenario to solve one‐step and multi‐step word problems. The lesson will involve solving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using a variety of strategies based on place value.

###
Comparing Fractional Parts Using Pizza

Students will compare fractional parts in a real-world situation using play dough as a model for pizza.

###
Composing and Decomposing a Number

In this lesson, students will learn how to compose a number with base 10 blocks, decompose a ten, and then compose the same number a different way.

###
Courts of Measure

Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.

###
Express Yourself

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

###
Are You Part of Our Family?

**The teacher will introduce Fact Families through literature. Students will create and represent various Fact Families within 10.**

###
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.

###
Pizza Place Value

Students compose and decompose numbers up to 1,200 in more than one way by participating in a teacher-created Three Act Task using a real-world scenario.
