Target 1​

Lesson Type:

Critical Thinking

:

Logical Reasoning

Use reasoning to solve logic puzzles.

Supporting targets:
1:

Use the given information in a problem to identify the correct answer.

2:

Use the given information to determine which is not the correct answer.

3:

Follow given rules to solve problems.

4:

5:

Grade:

4th

Vocabulary:

Set, Data, Category

Activities:

  • Played a game called "Set" which requires players to build a set of 3 cards that satisfy requirements.
  • Studied and analyzed cards that portray images with 4 different categories/features--shape, color, shading, and quantity.
  • In "Set," students build their 3-card stacks in such a way that each feature, when looked at individually, are all the same or all different.
  • Developed strategies for organizing and processessing information given.
  • Practiced deductive reasoning to eliminate cards that could not be part of a set.

Target 3

Lesson Type:
New
Algebra
Sequence
Use arithmetic to define a sequence and calculate the next unit in a series.

:

Supporting targets:
1:

Study a given arithmetic sequence to determine what rule explains the sequence (i.e., 2-4-6-8-10…each number is the sequence gets bigger by 2).

2:

Understand that a pattern can be described by stating the rule that it is following.

3:

Write an arithmetic rule to explain a given sequence.

4:

Understand that there are several arithmetic patterns present in Pascal’s Triangle.

5:

Grade:

4th

Vocabulary:

Pascal's Triangle, Sequence, Pattern

Activities:

  • Reviewed the given information to deduce the possible pattern rules that would best determine what numbers would come in the next rows of Pascal's Triangle.
  • Studied and discussed the other patterns that could be found within the diagonals.
  • Recognized that Pascal's Triangle is symmetrical so only half of of the values need to be solved for.
