Crime Scene Two Steppers: Two-step word problems using multiplication and division

Students will collaboratively solve two-step real-world word multiplication and division problems by using a checklist. Students will also solve a two-step word problem by completing a hands-on group activity.

###
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. **

###
Word problems, models and more!

**The students will engage in group activities to solve word problems with and without models as well as writing equations. **

###
Communication in Space

Students will work in cooperative groups to create an accurate arrangement of mirrors that work together to relay a laser beam from a Mars space station to Earth’s Mission Control, which will model utilizing satellites in space for communication, an accommodation necessary for manned space exploration.

###
Newton's Second Law

Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.

Motion of the Ocean | Nature Cat

Sing along with Nature Cat, Nature Dog, and their friends and learn about how the ocean currents work with this “Motion of the Ocean” song! From the Nature Cat: Ocean Commotion special.

###
How to Travel Around the World | Nature Cat

In this fun clip from Nature Cat: Ocean Commotion, Nature Dog and Sputnik form an unlikely alliance to rescue Mr. Chewinsky and in the process, they find out whether it’s possible to travel around the world using only the ocean currents.

###
Balancing Act

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

###
States of Matter Fitness

In this 3rd through 5th grade video, students use their science knowledge and apply it using physical activity! Learning about the stages of matter, solid, liquid and gas, students perform an exercise for each as the teacher calls out an object such as soup or fog.

###
Wrap It Up! Lateral Area and Surface Area of Prisms

Students will be given a net to calculate how much material it would take to cover the surface.

###
Escaping the Nucleus

**Students will work in groups to complete an escape room challenge that replicates the process of gene expression. **

###
Breakout with Linear Relationships

Through a collaborative breakout station format, students will access prior knowledge to develop a deeper understanding of the relationships of slope through proportional relationships represented by unit rate and linear non-proportional relationships. A variety of representations will be practiced through scenarios, tables, graphs, and equations.

###
Solving One- and Two-Step Addition and Subtraction Problems

Students will use strategies to break down steps in a word problem, allowing for an understanding of the vocabulary and processes necessary, to apply correct math operations, maintain correct place value, and analyze solution feasibility.

###
Covalent Bonding: Electron Dot Diagrams

Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will model covalent bonds using electron dot formula (Lewis structures).

###
Teacher2Teacher Math Video Series

This resource contain links to video resources that demonstrate strategies for teaching mathematics concepts.

###
Can We Get There?

Students will calculate the rate of change and *y*-intercept from a real-world problem represented in a graph, a table, and/or an equation. They will then display and present their findings to the class.

###
Approximating the Value of Irrational Numbers

Given problem situations that include pictorial representations of irrational numbers, the student will find the approximate value of the irrational numbers.

###
Expressing Numbers in Scientific Notation

Given problem situations, the student will express numbers in scientific notation.
