This unit is about using all operations in problem solving. Students work with Math Huddles or Math Talks in real world problem solving situations. Students will learn about fixed and variable expense and calculate profit. Students will also learn about representing patterns in input output tables using sequences, generating rules and creating tables based on a rule.
I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress and make working in a PLC easier. There are 9 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. You can use the Learning Targets to get ideas on Intervention and Enrichment skills.
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:
- Mini Lessons
- Teaching Point
- Active Engagement
- Link to Ongoing Learning
