Techniques and Formulas

Solve problems involving area.

1:

Recognize area as a measurement of 2D shapes.

2:

Find the area of composite figures.

3:

Recognize that area is measured in squared units (i.e., cm2), depicting that the measurement has both height and width.

4:

Decompose a composite figure into simple rectangles to compute area.

5:

Use the formula for finding the area of rectangular shapes (A = base x height).

4th

Vocabulary:

Composite figures, area, dimensions, units

Activities:

Students worked on finding the area of basic 2D shapes such as squares, rectangles and triangles. Student then proceeded to find the area of composite figures combining two or more 2D shapes. Students will also work with various task cards asking them to find the area.    Home Exploration

Target 2

:

1:

Be introduced to a variety of computation strategies for adding within 1,000,000 and select a strategy that works best.

2:

Understand why the standard algorithm for adding is based on place-value.

3:

Understand that when adding a multi-digit number, each place-value is being added individually to create the new sum (ones are added to ones, tens are added to tens, etc.)

4:

Understand that when adding a multi-digit number, to solve start in the lowest place-value and go left.

5:

Understand how to “regroup” based on place-value understandings (i.e., ten ones can be composed into one ten – ten tens can be composed into one hundred).

4th

Vocabulary:

Regrouping, place value

Activities:

Students were given various calculation problems within that involved the concept of regrouping. Students were asked to roll dice in order to generate completely random numbers and then asked to solve the equation they created.    Home Exploration
