Algebraic Reasoning These plans are for 13 days of instruction. This unit is about practicing one and two step problems with all operations. Students apply what they learned about one step problems to working with problems that require multiple operations. Students use number lines, strip diagrams and equations to solve problems. Students begin decomposing non- overlapping figures and apply what they know about finding the area of an irregular shape. Students begin working with input output tables to determine additive or multiplicative relationships. They use expressions or equations to represent the pattern. Students will also review summarization of data and use this data to solve one and two step problems.
TEKS that are new: 3.5E, 3.6D, 3.8B. The rest of this unit is adding on to previous units with a focus on the second step in problem solving.
I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. There are 15 skills in this unit! A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit. A teacher tracking sheet is included to make small group instruction easier!
Each day contains objective, learning targets, materials, whole class teaching activity, guided math activity and closure with an exit ticket and answer key for most days.
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:
2 Math Huddles (Math Talk)
Mini Lessons (Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement and Link to Ongoing Learning)
Games in this unit include:
2 Truths and a Lie (input/ output)
Scavenger Hunt Area with QR Codes
Escape Room Problem Solving- No locks required!
1-2 step problem solving task cards with graphs
SCOOT Finding Area (from unit 4)
This unit is designed to print and go! I keep mine in a binder. You can put each day and all of the materials for that day in one sheet protector.
I hope this unit helps you get started with Guided Math- you can't beat $1.15 per day for a complete unit!
