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.
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.
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.
Math Problem Solving CAN DRIVE good problem solvers!: 1st grade CAN Drive
Students will help the principal collect cans for a can food drive. The students will be able to solve math word problems using the UPS✓ (UNDERSTAND what the problem is asking, make a PLAN, SOLVE the problem, and then CHECK to see if the answer makes sense) song/strategy, draw to show their work, and write a number sentence to go with their problem.
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.
Building Stamina During Stations
Students will participate in differentiated stations based on counting coins, comparing values, and purchasing items within various wants and needs. Students will self-assess their stamina development throughout the lesson.
Decomposing Number Exploration
Students will decompose a number up to 20 using manipulatives and graphic organizers.
Graphs and More Graphs Oh My!
Students will gather data based on a game and create the four types of graphs (pictograph, frequency table, bar graph, and dot plot).
Understanding Mathematical Word Problems
The student is expected to represent word problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers up to 20 using concrete and pictorial models and number sentences.
Students will understand the different representations of graphical data, through reading, listening, and comprehension of a word problem so they can devise a problem solving plan that addresses the entire problem.
Multiplication at the Market
Students will solve one-step multiplication problems using concrete objects, pictorial models, arrays, and equal groups.
Planting the Seeds of Perimeter
