Subject:

Math, Measurement and Data, Numbers and Operations Fractions

Type:

Half Day Lesson Plan

CCSS: 4.NF.6

Skills: use decimal notation for fractions with denominators of 100; represent a fraction and a decimal greater than 1 as an improper fraction and its equivalent ...

Description: In this fully-scripted lesson plan, students begin with visual models such as number lines and shaded grids for identifying and writing fraction and decimal amounts. Real world applications feature measuring with meters and connecting decimal amounts to money amounts. Tasks feature partner work, group work, and independent problem solving.

## Volume: Measuring Cubic Units

Subject:

Math, Measurement and Data

Type:

CCSS: 5.MD.4 , CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP1, CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP2, CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP4

Skills: Measure volume in cubic units, Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, Reason abstractly and quantitatively, Model with mathematics

Description: In this lightly scripted, half hour lesson, students use a ruler and classroom objects to measure volume. Students will try to stump their classmates by measuring a secret object and leaving its volume as the only identifying clue!

Subject:

Math, Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Type:

CCSS: 5.NF.5, CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP2, CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP4, CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP8

Skills: Interpret multiplication as scaling (resizing), Reason abstractly and quantitatively, Model with mathematics, Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Description: In this lightly-scripted lesson, 5th grade, half hour lesson plan, students use mental reasoning and collaborative discussion to explore the relationship between whole numbers, fractions, and multiplication. Students play a fun whole class game and then complete tricky problems before completing an exit ticket.

## 4th Grade Math Lesson: Number & Operations Fractions

## 4th Grade Math Lesson: Number & Operations Fractions

Subject:

Math, Numbers and Operations Fractions

Type:

1 Hour Lesson

CCSS: 4.NF4.3, Standards of Math Practices 3, 4

Skills: addition of fractions, decomposition of fractions, real-world tasks involving addition of like fractions, renaming of improper fractions as equivalent mixed numbers, the construction of viable arguments, ...

Description: In this 60-90 minute lesson plan, students will work with number and operations fractions to understand the addition of fractions as joining parts referring to the same whole. Students will decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way as well as will solve real world tasks involving addition of like fractions. Students will rename improper fractions as equivalent mixed numbers and reinforce their learning visually by modeling with mathematics. Working in a group setting and in pairs, students will construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

CCSS: NF4.6, Standards of Math Practices 3, 4

Skills: decimal notation for fractions with denominators of 10, modeling with mathematics by representing fractions on a number line, argument construction, and critiquing the reasoning of ...

Description: This 60-90 minute lesson plan teaches numbers and operations fractions to fourth grade students. Working in a group setting and in pairs, students will learn how to use decimal notation for fractions with denominators of 10 or 100, including how to represent a fraction and a decimal greater than 1 as an improper fraction and its equivalent mixed number. For example, students will learn to rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram. By modeling with mathematics and presenting their learning, students will stay engaged as well as utilize crucial skills including the construction of viable arguments and the critique of the reasoning of others.
