###
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.

###
Who Ran the Farthest?

Students determine by using fractions which fourth-grade teacher ran the farthest.

###
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.**

###
Glaciologist in Action (Lab)

Students participate in a hands-on lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.

###
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. **

###
How Newton's Laws Apply Every Day

Students collaboratively determine how the characteristics of a real-world job correlate with each of Newton’s Laws and why that is relevant to their own lives.

###
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.

Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Can You Multi-Step?

This lesson is designed to allow students to use strip diagrams, standard algorithms (long division), partial product, partial quotient, or area models to solve multi-step equations.

###
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.

###
Multiplication Matters: Justifying Mathematical Reasoning in Problem Solving

Students solve one-step and multi-step problems, including multiplication and remainders, by engaging in a real-world story problem, using a graphic organizer of their choice.

###
Finding Clues to Solve Equations and Inequalities

**Students will solve one variable two-step equations and inequalities using a variety of materials while working independently and collaboratively in learning stations.**

Tinkering with Remainders

**Students will use division to create a remainder scenario using materials provided.**

** **

###
Interpreting Remainders

**Students will solve division word problems including problems where they are required to interpret a remainder.**

###
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 real-world situation.
