Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!

Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a real-world problem is correct using context and computational skills.

###
Earth’s Movements

Students will work in small collaborative groups to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth as it revolves around the Sun which creates a day and night cycle.

###
Lines of Symmetry

Students will work collaboratively with a partner to discover what is a line of symmetry.

###
Fractions with Multi-Step Problems

Students will be able to work collaboratively while baking to find the least common multiples of fractions with unlike denominators and create equivalent fractions, then add or subtract.

###
Glaciologist in Action (Lab)

Students participate in a hands-on lab in which glacier (ice) effects on the Earth’s surface is demonstrated.

###
Circuit Designers

**Students will work in small groups of two to three on a structured challenge around circuits which includes requirements such as including using a switch or a conductor. They will then use that knowledge to work on a collaborative challenge to solve a relevant problem related to elephant poaching. Students will create a containment system that will have an alarm system, a lighting system, and a way to pass through. Finally, they will review the other projects and discuss similarities and differences in the design.**

###
Particular Polygons

Students will be able to classify 2D figures by analyzing their attributes.

###
When Life Gives You Lemons

**Students create input-output tables to find numerical patterns and relationships in the real world through the process of making lemonade.**

###
Composing and Decomposing a Number

In this lesson, students will learn how to compose a number with base 10 blocks, decompose a ten, and then compose the same number a different way.

###
Courts of Measure

Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.

###
Who Ran the Farthest?

Students determine by using fractions which fourth-grade teacher ran the farthest.

###
Are You Part of Our Family?

**The teacher will introduce Fact Families through literature. Students will create and represent various Fact Families within 10.**

###
Frontier Days Heros Solve Division Equations to Unite our Nations

Students will be able to creatively and confidently solve one-and two-step problems involving multiplication and division, including interpreting the remainder. In addition, students will be working collaboratively by using critical thinking and activating prior knowledge to solve math operation skills in a real-world situation.

###
Understanding Multiplication Using Cell Phone Plans

Students will multiply to compare cell phone plans in order to determine the best deal and to connect the standard algorithm to other multiplication strategies and place value in the real world.

###
Trip to the Theme Park

Students will work on a real-world based project in class involving multiplication of decimals requiring budgeting skills.

###
Tinkering with Remainders

**Students will use division to create a remainder scenario using materials provided.**

** **

###
Interpreting Remainders

**Students will solve division word problems including problems where they are required to interpret a remainder.**

###
Adding Fractions on a Number Line

Students will work collaboratively in small groups to create number lines, and then use those number lines to model a real-world situation.
