Lesson Plan Description

Do your 5th graders need help with the algebraic symbols?  Grab this comprehensive bundle of 3 lessons to use an introduction or a review.  Your students will:

  • Segment 1: collaborate and use key vocabulary in strategic, purposeful note-taking partnerships in order to review and practice distinguishing between parentheses, brackets, and braces and apply previous knowledge about the order of operations (PEMDAS) to new situations
  • Segment 2: evaluate and solve numerical expressions with parentheses, brackets, and braces
  • Segment 3: design their own examples of  numerical expressions using these symbols and demonstrate their understanding of this skill by playing an interactive game and complete an exit slip to help you plan your 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.
