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.
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.
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 Shapes Around Us
Students will make connections between realworld objects and the attributes of twodimensional shapes.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!
Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a realworld problem is correct using context and computational skills.
Running the Race with Equivalent Fractions
Students will relate positions on a relay track to a number line. Through discovery, the students will be able to identify and represent fractions and equivalent fractions on a number line.
Avoiding Common Subtraction Errors
Students will perform an error analysis of common subtraction errors related to the standard algorithm.
Make a Hit with Decimals
Students will compare and order decimals using baseball batting statistics. Through discovery, students will determine the top six out of eleven players to be recruited for the school’s baseball team, present their findings, and explain reasons for their orderings. From students’ explanation, strategies for ordering decimals will be determined and used to adjust subsequent lessons.

This resource provides vertical alignment charts for the revised mathematics TEKS.
Representing Whole Number Quantities
This activity provides an opportunity for students to represent whole numbers with pictures.
Determining the Perimeter of a Polygon (Series and Activity 1)
This activity provides an opportunity for students to investigate the perimeter of polygons.
Parallel and Intersecting Lines
This activity provides an opportunity for students to build an understanding of parallel and intersecting lines.
