Lesson Plan Description
Fourth Grade 1 hour math lesson addressing Operations and Algebraic Thinking: multiplicative comparisons (4.OA.A2). This lesson includes: key terms, helpful student notes for reference, guided and independent practice of concepts and a short exit slip for an optional assessment at the end of the lesson. Students will be able to distinguish between additive comparison and multiplicative comparison. Solve word problems by multiplying or dividing numbers. They will also be able to solve word problems using drawings and equations with a letter for the unknown variable.
