This is a set of colorful, child-friendly, posters that you can put on your Math bulletin board or Word Wall. These posters are designed to fit the NGSSS curriculum, but will align with many Common Core standards. This set is designed to align with the series Go Math! for 5th grade, the division unit.
Personally, I keep these up for the entire unit. I start by putting the posters up several days before we start the unit. This gives students a chance to preview the content. They know to expect that I'll ask questions regarding the posters on the first day of the unit. They often refer to these (and are encouraged to do) regularly during math lessons.
The "Chapter 4" page in the PDF corresponds with Go Math. However, I added two pages at the end. One page states the learning goal as "Algebra: Operations and Equations". The last page just says "Learning Goal" and leaves space for you to write in your own.
Posters inform on:
- identifying base and exponent
- how to evaluate exponents
- order of operations
- balancing equations
- isolating vairables
- solving equations with variables for: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
- "checking" work
Feel free to use the pages you see fit. One size may not fit all. =)
