GRADE

6th Grade

SUBJECT

Mathematics

LESSON SUMMARY

Students will be assigned a math operation to learn and teach their group members.
Students will be exploring and learning from each other as they each create a
colorful poster of the math operation they were assigned.
In this lesson, students will be able to learn from each other. Students will be able to
explore the different meanings of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Students will be exploring the meanings with one another and begin to interpret the
different ways of expressing the same operation. Students will be using online
resources to learn and teach each other the different meanings.
This lesson asks students to explore online resources and interpret the knowledge in
their own words in order to teach their peers.

How is Theory
applied in this
lesson?

In learning by design, the students work in small groups messing around with
materials or devices that will help them understand what they need to learn to
successfully achieve the challenge. Then they get together as a class around a
specially-formatted whiteboard to share their experiences and ideas for achieving
the challenge and to articulate what they need to learn more about. We provide
guidelines on orchestrating the "messing about" activities so that students will
generate questions about the targeted science, as stated in the Georgia Institute of
Technology website. At times, students will be using whiteboards, post its, flashcards
to share their knowledge to other groups and to the classroom. Students will be
exploring together in groups, asking each other for questions before they ask an
adult in the classroom. As students ask each other the questions, they will realize
that together they have the potential to work extremely well and effectively.
Answers will come out of each other instead of the teacher. Instruction will be
geared towards group work and not individuality. Because students are able to learn
from each other, they will have the opportunity to listen to 3 different ways of
learning material, instead of just one way, the teachers. Students will also be able to
share their knowledge, perhaps online, and or in person. Group collaboration will be
heavy in every lesson in the unit.

OBJECTIVE.
What will your students be able to do?
Students will be able to explore the different meanings of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Students will be using online resources to learn and teach each other the different meanings. After sharing
their findings, students will present the information to their group. Group members will then each create a
small poster of the operation they researched.
ASSESSMENT
How will you know whether your students have made progress toward the objective?
How and when will you assess mastery?
Students will be given an exit slip at the end of class. Exit slip will be worth 4 points.
Questions for students to answer:
What was your operation?
Give two other ways to express addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
How was this activity useful to you? Did you like researching online for knowledge?
COMMON CORE
How will you address Common Core standards?

Version 1
02/16

Common Core Standards addressed in the lesson:


6.EE.2.B
Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient);
view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2 (8 + 7) as a
product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.

DIFFERENTIATION
How will you differentiate your instruction to reach the diversity of learners in your classroom?
How will you address your English Learners?
List the specific strategies you will use.
Students will be placed in groups. Students will be mixed by different math abilities and gender.
If any English Language learners are in the classroom:

Teacher or an adult will be able to facilitate a side conversation and explain activity to student.
If also possible, teacher will have key words such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division available
for student in their own language. Teacher can also allow English learners to research those key words to learn
them in their native language.
Teacher may also group student with someone who speaks the same language as them to better understand
the activity.

Mathematics
Students will be asked to interpret expressions and equations based on items that
they have brought from home. Expressions have been pre-determined since as a

sheet of paper.
Students will be introduced to the fact that the next day in class they will be working
on a video in groups. Students will have to create and teach others how to deal with
expressions and how to properly solve them. This will take most of the class time as
students try to record themselves.

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in
real- world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the
conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For
example, use the formulas V = s3 and A = 6 s2 to nd the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of
length s = 1/2.

As a group you may use:
1) PowerPoint (narrate a PowerPoint presentation on how to solve and form equivalent
expressions and equations)
2) Your own worksheet and live person explaining the process as a student records.

Keep in mind that all students must equally participate in video.


Video cannot exceed 5 minutes.
Group must explain how to solve and form equivalent expressions and
equations.
All math operations must be taught in video.
Due: in Lesson #6.
Link of video must be submitted to teacher before the class begins. Video
can also be posted to YouTube once it has been approved by teacher.

GRADE

6th Grade

SUBJECT

Mathematics

LESSON SUMMARY

Students will continue to record their group video on equivalent expressions and
equations.
Students will be able to create their own knowledge for other students to view
engaging math videos created by students themselves. Usual math videos are
boring and done by an older adult. This way, students are introduced to the idea of
creating their own knowledge.

How is Theory
applied in this
lesson?

OBJECTIVE.
What will your students be able to do?
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to have recorded an instructional video that is funny,
interesting, and very informational. Students will have all class to work as a group.
ASSESSMENT
How will you know whether your students have made progress toward the objective?
How and when will you assess mastery?
Student will have an Evaluation at the end of the class to see how well they participated with their peers in the
video recording.
COMMON CORE
How will you address Common Core standards?
Standards used in Lesson:
6.EE.2.D. 3
Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive
property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive
property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of
operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.

DIFFERENTIATION
How will you differentiate your instruction to reach the diversity of learners in your classroom?
How will you address your English Learners?
List the specific strategies you will use.
EL student may use computer to translate phrases that may be unfamiliar like equivalent equations, etc.
Teacher may also pair EL with a student whose native language is the same, if possible.
If also possible, EL student can be paired with other EL students and their group video can be in their native
language.
OPENING (10 minutes suggested)
MATERIALS/STRATEGI
How will you communicate what is about to happen? How will you communicate
ES
how it will happen?
How will you communicate its importance? How will you communicate
connections to previous & future lessons?
How will you engage students and capture their interest?
