This unit is about prime and composite numbers and order of operations and representing and solving multi-step problems algebraically. Students will use factors, arrays and area models to determine prime and composite numbers. They will learn about grouping symbols up to two levels and simplify numerical expression using the order of operations (no exponents). Students will represent and solve word problems using equations and diagrams with a letter representing the unknown.
I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. There are 5 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. 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.
- Teaching Point
- Active Engagement
- Link to Ongoing Learning
Games and Engagement Activities in this unit include:
- SCOOT 5.4B
- Scavenger Hunt 5.4B
- Mystery Challenge
- Mirror 5.4F
- Build to 100 Prime and Composite 5.4A
- Prime and Composite Sort 5.4A
- Door Cards 5.4E
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 with Guided Math by providing a whole class teach, active engagement, guided math activities and exit tickets for almost everyday- you can't beat $1.50 per day for a complete unit!
