Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!
Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a real-world problem is correct using context and computational skills.
Who Ate More - Fractions on a Number Line
In this activity, students will consider a real-world scenario requiring them to compare two fractional amounts using a number line. Through the use of the number line and peer collaboration, students will recognize equivalency in the two fractional quantities and effectively communicate their understanding of this concept.
Glaciologist in Action (Lab)
Students participate in a hands-on lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
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.
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.
From Dogs/Not Dogs to Prisms/Not Prisms
Students will work in pairs, groups, and independently to sort and classify 2D and 3D shapes using formal geometric language. Students will have opportunities to explore the work of other groups to expand their thinking and find new ways that shapes can be sorted and classified. Students will engage in multiple conversations using accurate geometrical language to ask questions, explore a variety of reasonings, and share generalizations about shapes.
When Life Gives You Lemons
Students create input-output tables to find numerical patterns and relationships in the real world through the process of making lemonade.
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.
Who Ran the Farthest?
Students determine by using fractions which fourth-grade teacher ran the farthest.
Students will represent fractions in multiple ways, such as pattern blocks, fraction strips, and number lines.
Frontier Days Heros Solve Division Equations to Unite our Nations
Students will be able to creatively and confidently solve one-and two-step problems involving multiplication and division, including interpreting the remainder. In addition, students will be working collaboratively by using critical thinking and activating prior knowledge to solve math operation skills in a real-world situation.
More Super Duper Math
Students will gather objects to compare quantities and justify their answers pictorially and verbally. They will use their vocabulary posters and accountable talk menus to discuss with their partners.
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.
Understanding Multiplication Using Cell Phone Plans
Students will multiply to compare cell phone plans in order to determine the best deal and to connect the standard algorithm to other multiplication strategies and place value in the real world.
Planting the Seeds of Perimeter
Students will create planters that meet specific perimeter dimensions. The students will need to determine the number of sides and the perimeter for their planter.
The Picture Graph Party
