Lesson Plan Description
This bundle of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Operations and Algebraic Thinking: multiplicative comparisons (4.OA.A2). These lessons include: key terms, helpful student notes for reference, guided and independent practice of concepts, and an activity to reinforce the concept of solving word problems using multiplicative comparisons, tape diagrams, and manipulatives.
- Segment 1: collaborate with partners, practice the “language” of math, distinguish between additive comparison and multiplicative comparison, solve word problems by using drawings, equations, multiplication or division and solve for unknown variable
- Segment 2: practice solving word problems using drawings, tape diagrams, equations, multiplication or division and solve for unknown variable
- Segment 3: demonstrate their understanding of the multiplicative comparison by creating word problems and using manipulatives to illustrate their solutions and complete an exit slip to help you determine next instructional steps
These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
