Target 1​

Lesson Type:

Review

Number Operation

:

Computation

Solve multi-step problems within 1,000 (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division).

Supporting targets:
1:

Solve problems that have more than one operation.

2:

Understand that the order of operations must be followed to evaluate expressions.

3:

Understand that calculating in the wrong order can result in a wrong answer.

4:

Define PEMDAS – Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

5:

Correctly identify the order of operations and use them to simplify expressions.

Grade:

4th

Vocabulary:

Order of Operations, Addition, Subtraction, Division, Multiplication, Exponents, Parentheses

Activities:

Students were given equations on the board and listed the order of operations required to solve the problem on their whiteboards.

 

Students were given a list of problems to solve and put in order. Whoever was able to solve and put the numbers in order first won a prize.

Target 2

Lesson Type:
Review
Number Operation
Number System
Use understandings of positive and negative number order to determine the value of a given space on a number line.

:

Supporting targets:
1:

Understand that a number line is a spatial representation of quantities.

2:

Understand that numbers have an unchanging order, so even if a number is not written on the number line (it still has a space).

3:

Indicate an integer on the number line.

4:

5:

Grade:

4th

Vocabulary:

Number Line, Sequence, Integers, Plot

Activities:

Students used answers from the previous activitiy to plot them on a number line. The number line was drawn for them, and they used post-it notes to indicate placement of their answers on the number line.

Target 3

Lesson Type:
Number Operation
Operational Relationships
Use properties of operations as strategies for solving problems.

:

Supporting targets:
1:

Understand that the Distributive Property of Multiplication allows for numbers to be separated into parts (multiply a sum by multiplying each addend separately and then adding the products).

2:

Understand that multiplication is commutative, and division is not commutative.

3:

Understand that a factor can be broken apart and the parts can be multiplied by the other factor and still result in the same product.

4:

5:

Grade:

Vocabulary:

Distributive Property. Array, Multiplication, Factors, Commutative

Activities:

Students made arrays using blocks. Students divided the arrays in order to determine where factors could be divided and distributed.

 

Students wrote simplified and expanded forms of multiplication equations on whiteboards in correspondence with their arrays.
