Target 1​

Lesson Type:

Continuation

Algebra

:

Sequence

Use arithmetic to define a sequence and calculate the next unit in a series.

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).

3:

Define multiplication and division patterns.

4:

Write an arithmetic rule to explain a given sequence.

5:

Write a pattern based on a given rule.

4th

Vocabulary:

Pattern, Sequence, Arithmetic rule, Unit, Series

Activities:

1. Students were given a set of numbers. They needed to solve the pattern, whether it be addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division.

2. Students needed to show the patterns in the numbers. They wrote the rule that describes the pattern. Then, they used the rule to write the next 3 numbers in the pattern.

Absent Students:

Target 2

:

1:

Understand there are many ways to multiply multi-digit numbers.

2:

Explain how different methods produce the same product (how each method is doing the same thing).

3:

Use the standard algorithm for solving multi-digit multiplication equations.

4th

Vocabulary:

Multi-digit, Lattice Method, Standard Algorithm, Base number, Product

Activities:

1. Students were given a variety of multiplication problems that dealt with multiplying by 10, 100, 1,000. They realized that they could just multiply the base numbers by 1 and then add the zeros in the 10, 100, or 1,000 to the end of the base number.

2. Students learned the Lattice Method to multiply multi-digit numbers. Then, they checked it by using the standard algorithm method.
