Title: Who is the Greatest?
Description:
Students will gain more conceptual understanding of comparing 3digit numbers. They will build numbers using base ten blocks and a hundreds chart and work with a partner to decide which number is greater. They will be making decisions about which place value to put the digits in to construct the greatest number.
This is a College and CareerReady Standards showcase lesson plan.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (2) 5: Understand that the three digits of a threedigit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases: [2NBT1] [MA2013] (2) 8: Compare two threedigit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [2NBT4]

Title: Using Sign Language to Write FourDigit Numbers in Words
Description:
In my experience, children love to learn and experiment with sign language. In this lesson, children will learn numbers 1100 in sign language and will use that knowledge to sign four digit numbers to be written in words.
This lesson plan was created by exemplary Alabama Math Teachers through the AMSTI project.

Title: Multiplication Facts, Facts, Facts and Some Reese's Pieces for Snack!!
Description:
This lesson teaches the basic math multiplication facts in a fun way so that students will want to remember them. Knowledge of all multiplication facts will help with learning subsequent skills in longer multiplication, division, fractions, etc.
Standard(s): [TC2] (35) 8: Collect information from a variety of digital sources. [TC2] (35) 6: Describe social and ethical behaviors related to technology use. [TC2] (35) 5: Practice safe use of technology systems and applications. [MA2013] (1) 1: Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. (See Appendix A, Table 1.) [1OA1] [MA2013] (1) 5: Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2). [1OA5] [MA2013] (1) 6: Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.
Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows
12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13). [1OA6] [MA2013] (1) 7: Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. [1OA7] [MA2013] (1) 8: Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. [1OA8] [MA2013] (1) 10: Understand that the two digits of a twodigit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases: [1NBT2] [MA2013] (1) 12: Add within 100, including adding a twodigit number and a onedigit number and adding a twodigit number and a multiple of 10, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method, and explain the reasoning used. Understand that in adding twodigit numbers, one adds tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose a ten. [1NBT4] [MA2013] (1) 13: Given a twodigit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number without having to count; explain the reasoning used. [1NBT5] [MA2013] (1) 14: Subtract multiples of 10 in the range 1090 from multiples of 10 in the range 1090 (positive or zero differences), using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method, and explain the reasoning used. [1NBT6] [MA2013] (1) 18: Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. [1MD4] [MA2013] (2) 1: Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one and twostep word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. (See Appendix A, Table 1.) [2OA1] [MA2013] (2) 2: Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. (See standard 6, Grade 1, for a list of mental strategies.) By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two onedigit numbers. [2OA2] [MA2013] (2) 3: Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends. [2OA3] [MA2013] (2) 4: Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends. [2OA4] [MA2013] (2) 6: Count within 1000; skipcount by 5s, 10s, and 100s. [2NBT2] [MA2013] (2) 7: Read and write numbers to 1000 using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form. [2NBT3] [MA2013] (2) 8: Compare two threedigit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [2NBT4] [MA2013] (2) 9: Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. [2NBT5] [MA2013] (2) 10: Add up to four twodigit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations. [2NBT6] [MA2013] (2) 11: Add and subtract within 1000 using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting threedigit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds. [2NBT7] [MA2013] (2) 12: Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100 – 900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100 – 900. [2NBT8] [MA2013] (2) 13: Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations. (Explanations may be supported by drawings or objects.) [2NBT9] [MA2013] (3) 1: Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 x 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. [3OA1] [MA2013] (3) 5: Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. (Students need not use formal terms for these properties.) [3OA5]

Title: Further Investigating Greater Than, Less Than, and Equal To
Description:
Students build upon their understanding of greater than, less than, and equal to by observing quantity and making comparison using varied instructional materials. The fish cutout, with its mouth open, represents the greater than or less than symbol; the clam cutout represents the equal to symbol. Using fish lips as a transition point, children will apply their understanding of greater, less, and equal to the standard symbols as the teacher introduces symbolic notation at an developmentally appropriate level.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 6: Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies. (Include groups with up to ten objects.) [KCC6] [MA2013] (0) 7: Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals. [KCC7] [MA2013] (1) 11: Compare two twodigit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <. [1NBT3] [MA2013] (2) 8: Compare two threedigit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [2NBT4] [MA2013] (4) 7: Read and write multidigit whole numbers using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multidigit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [4NBT2]
