Title: You Scream, I Scream, We all Scream for Ice cream !
Fun and yummy lesson to do on a sunny spring afternoon. Have the students take a poll of their favorite choice of ice cream and create a bar graph showing the information.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science University, GEMS-U Project.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (2) 23: Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph. (See Appendix A, Table 1.) [2-MD10]
Title: Lost Buttons
In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students investigate subtraction more directly, beginning with the easier take away mode. They model take away subtraction with buttons and write subtraction sentences. They also work with the additive identity (0) as an addend and as a difference and find missing addends.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (2) 18: Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. [2-MD5]
