This math set is tied directly to the fifth grade common core OA.2.
This set is the perfect tool to teach your students the second Operations and Algebraic Thinking standard in the common core. By completing the activities in this set, your students will understand how to write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.
Included in this download are:
-5 Math Tasks for cooperative learning
-5 Exit Tickets for individual assessment
-I can statements for clear learning objectives
This combination of teaching strategies fosters whole-brain teaching and helps students learn and retain the common core curriculum.
The math tasks in this product differ from conventional math tasks. Information is missing from each task to teach your students how to apply the standard’s concepts in real-world settings. For example, a question might ask how many legs the students saw while on a field trip to the zoo. The students would then have to reasonably estimate how many animals they saw, how many legs on each animal, and how many legs they saw in total. Your students might all get a different answer but as long as they do the math correctly, the final answers can be different.
Students can work individually, in small groups, or in partnerships to complete the math tasks given. They will use skills such as rounding, estimating, multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting, guess and check, drawing pictures, using equations etc. to solve these problems. They can then share their work with the class and explain their thinking.
The exit tickets are a quick way for students to show what they know and for the teacher to assess their lesson. It also gives a quick snapshot of the material covered that day and who needs to be retaught.
I Can Statements:
The I Can statements help guide the math lessons. They are in kid friendly language so the students know exactly what they will be learning.
