Title: Getting Froggy Wih It
Description:
Students will solve problems using a number line. Students will work collaboratively to create a "Town" with the main street consisting of a number line diagram. They will practice counting forwards and backwards, measuring and determining distance in units on the number line.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (2) 19: Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2,… on a number diagram. [2MD6] [MA2013] (2) 19: Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2,… on a number diagram. [2MD6]
Subject: Mathematics (2)

Title: Jelly Beans Add Up
Description:
The lesson will explore counting, sorting, and graphing skills. The lesson provides students an exciting and fun way of exploring and internalizing graphing, sorting, and counting skills. Realistically, the students will discover what color jelly bean is contained more often than any other color in a standard bag of jelly beans. Moreover, students will be investigating probability. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
Standard(s): [S1] (1) 1: Select appropriate tools and technological resources needed to gather, analyze, and interpret data. [S1] (1) 1: Select appropriate tools and technological resources needed to gather, analyze, and interpret data. [MA2013] (2) 19: Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2,… on a number diagram. [2MD6] [MA2013] (2) 22: Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot where the horizontal scale is marked off in wholenumber units. [2MD9] [MA2013] (2) 23: Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with singleunit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple puttogether, takeapart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph. (See Appendix A, Table 1.) [2MD10]

Title: Exploring Other Number Patterns
Description:
In this lesson, one of a multipart unit from Illuminations, students make and extend patterns with numbers in a variety of mathematical contexts. They also explore functions at an intuitive level.
Standard(s): [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) 6: Count within 1000; skipcount by 5s, 10s, and 100s. [2NBT2] [MA2013] (2) 19: Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2,… on a number diagram. [2MD6]

Title: Hopping Backward on the Number Line
Description:
In this lesson, one of a multipart unit from Illuminations, students generate differences using the number line model. Because this model highlights the measurement aspect of subtraction, it is a distinctly different representation from the models presented in lessons one and two. The order property for subtraction is investigated. At the end of the lesson, children are encouraged to predict differences and answer puzzles involving subtraction.
