Title: Roll 'N Round to Win
Description:
This lesson is a handson, gamebased lesson. It should be part of a larger unit of study on number sense, estimation, and/or place value. The lesson involves students in a gamebased activity which gives them a concrete understanding of the relationship between number values, place value, and the accepted mathematical rule for rounding numbers.
This is a College and CareerReady Standards showcase lesson plan.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (3) 11: Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. [3NBT2]

Title: Communicating about Mathematics Using Games: Playing Fraction Tracks
Description:
Mathematical games can foster mathematical communication as students explain and justify their moves to one another. In addition, games can motivate students and engage them in thinking about and applying concepts and skills. This eexample from Illuminations contains an interactive version of a game that can be used in the grades 35 classroom to support students' learning about fractions. eMath Investigations are selected eexamples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (PSSM). The eexamples are part of the electronic version of the PSSM document. Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the eexamples are natural companions to the iMath investigations.
