Courts of Measure
Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.
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.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
Students will work in small groups of two to three on a structured challenge around circuits which includes requirements such as including using a switch or a conductor. They will then use that knowledge to work on a collaborative challenge to solve a relevant problem related to elephant poaching. Students will create a containment system that will have an alarm system, a lighting system, and a way to pass through. Finally, they will review the other projects and discuss similarities and differences in the design.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Math on the Farm
In learning stations, students compose and decompose numbers up to 10, in more than one way, using objects, pictures, story mats, tens frames, and number bond mats.
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).
Camping with Fractions
Students will create equivalent fractions using measuring cups to make a trail mix and use the fractions to find the total amount of different ingredients.
Comparing Box Plots and Dot Plots
This lesson is a 90-minute lesson that can be delivered in one block or split into two 45 minute lessons. The first part of the lesson engages students in a notice/wonder activity that is designed to help students begin to question how data is represented in box plots and dot plots. The second part of the lesson is designed for students to compare data in box plots and dot plots and identify truths and untruths about the representations.
Splashing into Addition and Subtraction Problem Situations
In learning stations, students will work independently and collaboratively to solve real-world mathematical problems.
Students will explore biodiversity concepts through several activities including a video, a card sort, think-pair-shares, food webs, and four corners.
Comparing and Representing Teen Numbers
The students will choose a cup with manipulatives and build that number using a tool of choice. The students will compare their number with a shoulder partner using math language or comparative language and will write in their math journal using a sentence stem and drawing their justification.
Drumming Up Some Sound Energy!
Students will explore sound energy by creating their own drums using a variety of materials. Then, students will listen for the loud and soft sounds that each of the drums creates.
Measurement Properties for 2-D and 3-D Shapes
Students will be able to use a problem-solving model, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications when solving problems involving two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. Students will integrate content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.
