###
Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents

This lesson helps students understand two foundational exponential properties: The Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents. Students will collaborate to formulate a rule for these properties. Ultimately, students should conclude that when the same bases are being multiplied, exponents will be added; and when the same bases are being divided, exponents will be subtracted. As the lesson progresses, students will apply these rules to simplify expressions of various difficulties.

###
Lines of Symmetry

Students will work collaboratively with a partner to discover what is a line of symmetry.

###
Centers in Subtraction

**Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts. **

###
More Super Duper Math

**Students will gather objects to compare quantities and justify their answers pictorially and verbally. They will use their vocabulary posters and accountable talk menus to discuss with their partners. **

###
Composing and Decomposing a Number

In this lesson, students will learn how to compose a number with base 10 blocks, decompose a ten, and then compose the same number a different way.

###
Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans

**Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.**

###
Are You Part of Our Family?

**The teacher will introduce Fact Families through literature. Students will create and represent various Fact Families within 10.**

###
The Picture Graph Party

Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

###
Up, Up, and Away

Students will determine an appropriate tabular/graphic/formulaic linear solution given 3 sets of data points.

###
Balancing Act

**Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equa l before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.**

###
Laws of Exponents

Students will discover the laws of exponents using problem-solving skills.

###
It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking

Students will experiment with choosing tools to measure around a previously created pet habitat in preparation for choosing appropriately sized food bowls. Students will use a graphic organizer to record tools chosen and to explain why those tools were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.

###
Going Beyond with Number Bonds

Students will use number bonds to compose and decompose numbers to 10.

###
The Shapes Around Us

Students will make connections between real-world objects and the attributes of two-dimensional shapes.

###
Interpreting Scatterplots

Given scatterplots that represent problem situations, the student will determine if the data has strong vs weak correlation as well as positive, negative, or no correlation.

###
Making Predictions and Critical Judgments (Table/Verbal)

Given verbal descriptions and tables that represent problem situations, the student will make predictions for real-world problems.
