5th Grade • 1 Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan Description

Practice, practice and more practice will help your 5th graders demonstrate a true understanding of addition and subtraction with mixed numbers.  Working with peers, discussing the process and results allows your students to explain the “why” of this process.  They will:

  • Collaborate and use the “language” of place value and decimals in strategic, purposeful note-taking partnerships
  • Practice solving addition & subtraction problems with mixed numbers and unlike denominators using bar models and multiplication
