Product Description
Don’t judge a PowerPoint by its cover, check out the preview.

Materials included in this lesson:

1. A PowerPoint lesson that imitates what you would normally write on the board. This will give you freedom to walk around the classroom to observe student understanding while presenting the lesson. The PowerPoint also displays what you normally say but rarely write on the board meeting the needs of visual learner.

2. An activities worksheet to go along with the PowerPoint. This will meet the needs of the kinesthetic learners, allow you to observe student participation in the lesson, and give students a reference for when they complete their homework.

3. A homework assignment geared to help students master the concept, not be overwhelmed with a large number of problems or copying each problem before applying the concept.

4. A note to parents to help them understand the reasons behind the lesson, what the lesson is on, and the expectations of the student. Remember, keeping the parents on board is crucial to enhancing students’ learning experience.

Lattice Addition is a non-traditional strategy for adding three or more whole numbers and one of three strategies that may be used for adding three or more whole numbers. I suggest you introduce your students to all three different strategies and practice each one. But in the end, students should be given the opportunity to choose the strategy they like best. Even better, they need to understand that they do not need to use the same strategy on every problem and different strategies work better on different problems. The goal of using a multi-dimensional approach to math is to develop the student’s ability to analyze a situation, make a decision on a strategy to use, and solve the problem. This multi-dimensional approach will help create problem solvers and not just robots that can only do what they are told.
