Courts of Measure
Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.
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.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
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.
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!
Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and yintercept.
Fractions with MultiStep Problems
Students will be able to work collaboratively while baking to find the least common multiples of fractions with unlike denominators and create equivalent fractions, then add or subtract.
Particular Polygons
Students will be able to classify 2D figures by analyzing their attributes.
Balancing Act
Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.
The Picture Graph Party
Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

Trip to the Theme Park
Students will work on a realworld based project in class involving multiplication of decimals requiring budgeting skills.
Dividing Fractions
Students will model dividing unit fractions and whole numbers.

Give a Hoot . . . Fraction Scoot
Students will add and subtract unlike denominators using pictorial models and manipulatives. During the lesson, they will use both group and independent work to build confidence as they use a variety of formative assessments to check for understanding. The final activity in the lesson has both application of the concepts being taught and a personal reflection of understanding.
Finding Common Denominators
Students will work collaboratively to explore and sketch solutions to realworld addition problems involving fractions with unlike denominators. Students will be given the opportunity to use manipulatives and participate in group discussions to reflect on their learning.

Young Architects
Students will explore area by finding square footage of the “dream home” they designed. They will use any method with which they feel confident, using skills that have been previously taught.

Four Representations of Linear Relationships
Given one representation of a linear relationship, students will create a poster displaying the other three representations of linear relationships.
Analyzing Bar Graphs: Candy Machines
Working in groups, students will examine a bag of candy to determine if the machine that bags the candy is working properly. They will organize data on the colors of the candy in a frequency table and a bar graph. They will calculate the fraction of each color in the bag and compare the fractions to a quota set up by the factory to determine if the machine needs maintenance. Students will create a report about their findings, write a question that requires students to interpret data represented in a bar graph, and reflect in their journals.

Concert Trip to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado
Students will evaluate and interpret data from both tabular and graphical forms to create a linear equation in either the form of direct variation (y=kx) or slopeintercept form (y = mx + b). Students will then use their findings to interpret the meaning of both slope and yintercept using a realworld relationship in word form.
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.
Measurement Properties for 2D and 3D Shapes
Students will be able to use a problemsolving model, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications when solving problems involving twodimensional and threedimensional shapes. Students will integrate content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.
Going Beyond with Number Bonds
Students will use number bonds to compose and decompose numbers to 10.
