### Target 1​

###### Lesson Type:

Continuation

Number Operation

:

Computation

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

###### 1:

Solve problems that have more than one operation.

###### 2:

Understand that the presence of parenthesis in an arithmetic equation signals for this part of the problem to be solved first.

###### 3:

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

###### 4:

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

###### 5:

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

4th

###### Vocabulary:

PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction), Order of operation, Expression, Simplify

Activities:

1. Revisited the different simple equations from adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers. Students solved simple one step problems to show their understanding.

2. After completing the simple problems, students completed harder complex multi-step problems that involved using the PEMDAS. Students needed to know what each letter for PEMDAS meant in order to solve the higher level complex problems. Problems included parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, subtraction, and or addition. For example, they needed to solve a problem such as:

(-4+8)-10+(7x2)+12=. As they solved each problem, it would get more and more complex.

## Absent Students:

### Target 2

:

###### 1:

Understand that different strategies are used for finding the median of an even and an odd set of items.

###### 2:

Find the mean of a given data set.

###### 3:

Find the mode of a given data set.

###### 4:

Understand that more than one mode is possible for a given data set.

###### 5:

Find the range of a given data set.

4th

###### Vocabulary:

Mean, Median, Mode, Range, Most common, Average, Data

Activities:

1. Reviewed each word and its definition (Mean, Median, Mode, and Range). Gave students a few simple numbers for their data to show me they understood of each term and how to solve for it.

2. After doing a few simple problems, they moved on to harder complex data. They completed an Easter activity called "Crack The Code." Students had to solve a variety of problems that dealt with finding the mean, median, mode, or range. After figuring out the answer, they needed to find their answer that would match with a letter. After doing all of the problems, they were able to unlock the message.

3. Next activity we started but didn't complete yet was students pretending to meterologist and interpreting their data they've collected. Students choose a state or country of their choice that they wanted to track that areas 5-day forecast. They needed to collect the highs, lows and precipitation for each day. Then, they needed to record it on a sheet for their data. Their next step will be to find the mean, median, mode and range for each day and each high, low and precipitation. After, they will create a display and share out.
