Math teaching resources by Carole Fullerton
In this resource for teachers of Grades 3 through 5 students will engage with lessons designed to support deep learning of number. These open-ended and directed tasks focus on representing and describing, comparing and ordering numbers to 100 000, as well as explorations of decimal numbers to thousandths.
Measurement experiences make up a big part of this series of tasks -- the metric system is featured in lessons on linear measurement (mm, cm, m, km), perimeter (cm, mm), area (square cm and square m), mass (g, kg) and capacity (mL, L).
The operations (adding and subtracting large numbers as well as decimals ones) are also addressed in this volume. Lessons at the grades 4 and 5 level focus on multiplication of 1 by 2 and 3 digits as well as 2 by 2 digit factors using the distributive property (an area model).
Assessment tasks tap into students' understandings of these numbers and their application in the real world.
Set up in a developmental continuum intended to facilitate the teaching of combined grades, this 352 page volume is certain to contain material to meet the needs of all learners.
When you buy the book online, you also get access to almost 40 pages of digital files and resources, which will be emailed to you as a downloadable pdf!
