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.
Place Value Party
In learning stations, students prepare for a birthday party by using their knowledge of place value to compose, decompose, and represent numbers using standard, word, and expanded forms.
Telling Time to the Minute
The lesson requires students to match times to the nearest fiveminute interval using an analog clock, digital clock, and time written in words. Students will sing a song, show and write the time to the nearest minute, and tell time using analog watches.
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!
Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a realworld problem is correct using context and computational skills.
Cooking Up Word Problems
Students rotate through four stations, collaboratively utilizing different strategies and manipulatives to analyze, explore, solve, and generate realworld culinary problem situations.
Are You in Your Place?
Students will be able to use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers with place value.
Step Into the Problem: A Strategy for Visualizing a Math Problem
Teachers will show students a tool to help them understand a problem situation. The tool called Step into the Problem, will walk students through the steps of comprehending a problem: Read the problem, Turn and Talk, Act it Out, Notice and Wonder, and Reflect. Students will be given a problem situation and will go through the steps to show that they understand the problem situation.
Demystifying Remainders
This lesson will introduce fourthgrade students to the concept of a remainder and the meaning of a remainder in the context of a word problem.
Shop 'til You Drop
Students will identify the value of coins and determine the total value of a group of coins to select items to purchase from a given list.
Running the Race with Equivalent Fractions
Students will relate positions on a relay track to a number line. Through discovery, the students will be able to identify and represent fractions and equivalent fractions on a number line.
Ravaged Robot
Students will learn the concept of area by building a robot using manipulatives and transferring the representation onto grid paper. Then, students will determine the area of each designated body part on their think sheet.
Avoiding Common Subtraction Errors
Students will perform an error analysis of common subtraction errors related to the standard algorithm.
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 realworld situation.

Interpreting Division with Remainders
Students will be given various one and twostep word problems and asked to interpret the remainder. Students will use foldables and anchor charts to determine under which category (“Drop the Remainder,” “Add One to the Quotient,” “Share the Remainder,” or “The Remainder is the Answer”) the question will fall. After completing that portion of the lesson, students will solve division problems and determine which type of remainder question they are working with. They will use Plicker ^{©} cards to display their answers so the teacher can have immediate formative assessment data.
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.

Make a Hit with Decimals
Students will compare and order decimals using baseball batting statistics. Through discovery, students will determine the top six out of eleven players to be recruited for the school’s baseball team, present their findings, and explain reasons for their orderings. From students’ explanation, strategies for ordering decimals will be determined and used to adjust subsequent lessons.

Time Using the Z Method
In small groups, students will calculate elapsed time using the Z method. This method helps students better understand the importance of start time and end time when performing elapsedtime calculations.

Subtraction on the Move
The students will participate in a number talk focused on subtraction with the subtrahend of nine. Then they will be paired to rotate around the room working subtraction problems with and without regrouping.

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.
