Students will learn ways to add using the associative property of addition. Students will view a PowerPoint presentation to introduce associative property of addition.
In this lesson students will be given the opportunity to practice using mathematical vocabulary to describe a set of data. Following data collection students will also create a graph using the computer.
In this lesson, students will work collaboratively to solve subtraction word problems. Students will solve distance word problems to find the difference between any 3-digit number and 1,000.
Students will collect examples of various statistical instruments and form an electronic scrapbook. These materials will be gathered from electronic sources in addition to periodicals and other print resources.
In order to practice basic sewing skills, students must be able to read and use a ruler for a variety of tasks. In this hands-on lesson, students will work collaboratively to demonstrate their mastery of how to read "English" units of measurements (inches). Students will learn how to read both 1/8" and 1/16" measurements through the use of yardsticks, rulers, and flexible measuring tape. This lesson can be used as part of a unit or as a remediation for students who will be using a ruler on assignments and projects.
In this introductory lesson to money management for teens, students will use everyday math skills to comparison shop a variety of products. Students will learn several ways to save money, including using store discounts, coupons, and unit pricing to determine the better deal. This is Part I of a series on becoming a wise consumer.
In this lesson, students will learn how to become a wise consumer by creating a budget based on needs and wants. Students will create a weekly budget with a variable income using the interactive app MWB: My Weekly Budget available on iTunes. Other budgeting spreadsheets will be suggested.
During this lesson, students will investigate how to "clear up" the "Traffic Jam." They will be using large manipulatives (their bodies), small manipulatives (carpet squares), and technology (the Java applet) to find the relationship among numbers and patterns. The carpet square will be used as "car lengths", while the students use their bodies as "vehicles" to try to find the minimum number of moves required to clean up the "Traffic Jam"!
As a part of the online collaborative unit, Westward Ho!, students will work in cooperative groups of 4-5 students to decide what items they need to take on the Oregon Trail, determine the cost of the items, and complete a ledger to inventory (keep up with) items used on the trail. Information will then be used as part of a multimedia slideshow journal describing the journey.
During this lesson, students will learn why numbers are rational or irrational. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written in the form a/b. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed in the form a/b, where a and b are integers.
When you go to camp, you expect to have a great time and learn a lot. The Camp Add 'Em Up lesson series is designed to guide a first grade student through development of addition and subtraction strategies through patterning. This lesson has the unique element of offering the learning pages in Spanish for students who are bilingual or for the teacher who would like to integrate Spanish language elements into lessons. Creative learners and technical learners have options included within each lesson as extension activities.
At Camp Add ÔEm Up itŐs time to or Ň2Ó find patterns in the environment. Students will work in pairs as they build understanding of how to count by 2Ős. Students will use digital cameras to capture Ň2ŐsÓ in their classroom (2 shoes, 2 hands, 2 feet, 2 eyes, etc.). Students will create patterns of 2Ős using paper blocks and/or Unifix cubes. Students will demonstrate their understanding of 2Ős and their creativity by creating a PhotoStory of found or created pairs. Students will also use a 100Ős chart and look for visual patterns.
Camp Add 'Em Up is a series of lessons for first grade students. Students will use prior knowledge of friendly numbers (two number combinations that make a "10") and "adding on" as they master the ability to add three numbers. In this lesson, students will use manipulatives as they explore adding numbers to make sums up to 20. The Hundreds chart handout used in this lesson has English and Spanish number words which will accommodate students who wish to explore a second language or to aid Spanish ELL students.
Students will conduct guided research on the Navaho code talkers and briefly discuss their impact on WWII. Students will also be introduced to other forms of cryptology and use number pattern skills to crack their own code and create a numerical code for classmates to crack.
Students will calculate the diameter, circumference, and ratio of a real world object. Students will create an electronic slideshow to illustrate the process of determining the diameter, circumference, and ratio of these objects.
In this lesson students will visit different websites in order to decide the best mode of transportation from their home town to New York City. Students will graph the results and write a persuasive paper.
Through a mixture of online exploration, and teacher instruction, students will discover how the degenerate forms of the conic sections are formed and will be able to identify the degenerate case of each conic section.
Through a mixture of online exploration, and teacher instruction, students will discover how parabolas are formed and will be able to use the key components from a graph (vertex, focus and directrix,) to generate the equation of a graph.
Through a mixture of online exploration, and teacher instruction, students will discover how Hyberbolas are formed and will be able to use the key components (center, vertices and the asymptotes) to generate the equation of a graph.
