Lesson Plan

Wallpaper Woes Money Math: Lessons for Life: Students hear a story about a middleschool student who wants to redecorate his bedroom. They measure the classroom wall dimensions, draw a scale model, and incorporate measurements for windows and doors to determine the area that could be covered by wallpaper. Students then hear more about the student's redecorating adventure and learn about expenses, budget constraints, and tradeoffs. 
Are You Ready for a Hurricane?: This activity allows students to determine the types of items that should be in a hurricane survival kit, use a budget and calculations to determine the items to include in the kit and gain an understanding of hurricanes and the need to prepare for them. 
Diving deeper into division: This lesson introduces students to dividing with 2 digit divisors Students are asked to apply strategies that they learned in dividing with 1 digit divisors such as partial quotients or breaking numbers apart using the distributive property. 
What Are They Thinking? Understanding Division: This lesson uses a discovery approach to exploring the meaning of division. The students will utilize math practice standards as they analyze math solutions and explain their own solutions. Since the lesson analyzes division, it is a sound lesson to use to check student understanding before introducing efficient division algorithms. 
Rank Our Pressure Cleaners: This MEA asks the students to decide on a pressure cleaning machine that will provide the Sidewalks and Roof Cleaning Services Incorporated company with the best value for their money. Students are asked to rank order of pressure cleaning machines in term of consumer rating, gallons per minute (GPS), pounds per square inch (PSI), cleaning units (CU), whether it is gasoline or electric operated, price, and amount of time the pressure cleaner takes to clean 10 square feet of surface area. Students must provide a "Best Value" pressure cleaner to the company owner and explain how they arrived at their solution. 
Patty's Party Planning: Students will help a party planner determine which party location is the best one to use for this situation. They will calculate the cost of the banquet hall rental based on the number of people, number of tables and hourly rental of the location by using division and multiplication. 
Getting Dry: This MEA asks the students to compare hand drying products based on: initial cost, replacement cost and absorbency. Students will provide the "top choice" to the principal of the school and explain how they arrived at the solution. In the twist, students will be asked to consider the environmental impact of the products and reevaluate their conclusions. 
Stand Up and Cheer: This MEA asks the students to compare items to be given to fans attending a college homecoming football game.
Students will use multidigit multiplication and measurement conversion while comparing data on the items. They will also take into account fan reviews of the items which should create interesting student discussions. 
Easy as Pie Division!: This is a handson lesson to show the relationship between division and multiplication. It provides a different method for solving long division that my students love. 
Which Sweets for the Bakery?: This MEA gives students the opportunity to use real world data to rank proposed product lines from most likely to be profitable to least likely to be profitable. There are two sequential tasks; the second task adds a component of complexity to the original task. Students will apply multiplication and division skills in problem solving, write a procedure with gradeappropriate organization and conventions, and participate in group collaboration to complete this task.

Evan's Family Vacation: Evan needs your help convincing his parents to rent a car for their family's vacation to Washington D.C. His parents are thinking of traveling in the families old SUV that has no air and horrible gas mileage. Students will be asked to estimate each rental car's gas costs along with the weekly rental fee to rank the choices. In the twist, the students will be given safety information and must decide how to change their procedure with the new information. 
Make a Funny Partial Quotient Division Story: This lesson introduces students to the area model and the partial quotient model to solve division problems with 2digit divisors. Students are asked to apply both strategies to solve funny division problems that they help create by inserting information that is left blank in the story problems.

Make It Fun: Division with Standard Algorithm: In this lesson, the teacher is demonstrating how to transition to solving division problems using standard algorithms. The students will begin by solving the problems using the distributive property, place value model and partial quotients and the teacher will help them make the connection to the standard algorithm using the demonstrations and guiding questions. 
Dividing for Equal Groups: Given situational stories, students will use base 10 blocks to model division in order to solve problems. Stories will include a variety of problems including 2 digit dividends by 1 digit divisors, 3 and 4 digit dividends by 1 digit divisors, and 3 and 4 digit dividends by 2 digit divisors. 
ProblemSolving Task

Minutes and Days: This task requires division of multidigit numbers in the context of changing units and so illustrates 5.NBT.6 and 5.MD.1. In addition, the conversion problem requires two steps since 2011 minutes needs to be converted first to hours and minutes and then to days, hours, and minutes.

Mathematics Common Core Unpacked: Grade Five: This document provides descriptions and examples of what each Mathematics Common Core standard means a Grade Five student will know, understand, and be able to do. This "unpacking" of the standards provides instructional guidelines and was developed to assist North Carolina educators teach the Mathematics Common Core (Standard Course of Study). 
Educational Software / Tool

Arithmetic Quiz: In this activity, students solve arithmetic problems involving whole numbers, integers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This activity allows students to track their progress in learning how to perform arithmetic on whole numbers and integers. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet. 
Formative Assessment

Dividing Using Place Value With Larger Divisors: Students are asked to complete a division problem using place value. 
Dividing Using An Area Model With Larger Divisors: Students are asked to interpret a division problem with a two digit divisor that has been completed using an area model. If the student is successful, he or she is asked to determine the solution to a division problem with a two digit divisor using an area model. 
Driving to Alaska: Students are asked to solve a division word problem using a strategy based on place value. 
Analyzing and Applying Division: Students are asked to analyze and explain another student’s division work in terms of a partial quotients strategy and to apply this strategy to another division problem.
